VTC Kids Day Camp teaches our actors, ages 8 - 13, to believe in their creative ideas, have the bravery to express them in front of others, and learn to be supportive of their peers.
This summer, VTC Kids Day Camp will teach and perform James and the Giant Peach Jr. A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, a boy and his insect friends take an amazing journey across the ocean.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!
A TYPICAL CAMP DAY INCLUDES:
Morning Meeting to create a sense of community within our ensemble
Free time & lunch
Scene work and acting classes
Hands on design workshops that focus on set, costume, and prop design
Character Biography Writing exercises
Occasional afternoon dance party, movie time, or specialized craft.
