This summer, VTC Kids Day Camp will rehearse and perform Madagascar Jr! Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar - A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite friends as they escape from their home in New York's Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien's Madagascar.
At VTC Kids Day Camp, campers learn basic musical theater techniques to communicate characters, feelings, and stories, which will increase their focus and exercise their imaginations. They will develop trust through cooperation and collaboration – learning to accept and build on each other's creative ideas in an atmosphere of DREAM: Diversity, Reciprocity, Education, Activism and Mentorship. These skills will serve them onstage and off!
