Your child will experience one of the most acclaimed theatre programs in the Tri-State area when you sign them up for 4th Wall Theatrical Production’s 2019 Summer Theatre Camp program – now celebrating our 19th year!
WEEK 1: JULY 8 – JULY 12
Our intensive week-long musical theatre camp teaches your child the entire process of putting on a musical by actually producing a musical in one week. It is fast-paced as every child is given a chance to shine and stretch their musical abilities. Reading music, harmony, melody, choreography and blocking, as well as backstage work such as sets, props, and costumes are all part of the program.
WEEK 2: JULY 15 – JULY 19
Do you want to sharpen your child’s wit and ability to think on her or his feet? During our week-long session, your child will learn the techniques and rules necessary to put on short and long term improvisational scenes and shows. This helps develop the understanding of sharing a stage with other actors and learning to let go of control of a story.
WEEK 3: JULY 22 – JULY 26
In our week-long acting camp, your child will learn every aspect of the theatre world. The children participate in every aspect of the show during the course of the week with the creation of costumes, sets, and props along with learning about storytelling, script reading, character development, pantomime, improvisation and more. Confidence building and public speaking skills are learned through theatre games focusing on eye contact and projection.
