Technical Theatre Camp for Ages 6 and Up

Academy Engage 2

SUMMER 2020

Tech Camp Jr

AGES 6-9
Created especially for younger theatre enthusiasts! Campers will explore the folktale, Stone Soup. After studying a variety of versions, youth will design and create the lighting, sound, scenery and properties needed for an original production of this beloved tale. Along the way they will discover that, much like the people they meet in the book, theatre professionals work together to create something more wonderful then any one of them could have done alone. Through this camp students will learn appropriate theatre terminology and proper safety procedures.

Date: June 22 - 26 (Monday - Friday)
Time: 9:00 - 11:00 AM
Requirements: Ages 6-9
Camp Fee: $179


Technical Theatre Camp

AGES 10 and up
Tech Camp introduces students to traditional stagecraft skills used in the creation phase of productions. During the course of the week, youth will participate in a variety of hands on projects using tools of the trade as they develop skills such as scenery construction and painting; reading a light plot to hang and focus lighting instruments; ; the creation of hand props; and basic sewing skills. Throughout the week students will work in our theatre spaces and professional shops while receiving guidance from the Civic Tech and Design Staff. Along the way, students will learn appropriate theatre terminology and proper safety procedures. The best part is you get to take several projects you have created home with you at the end of camp!

Date: June 22 - 26 (Monday - Friday)
