TUSCALOOSA — Theatre Tuscaloosa and Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre are coming together again this summer to offer their ninth annual Summer Theatre Camp. Camp runs June 17-28, 2019, and classes will be held Mondays through Fridays from 8:15 a.m. until 12 p.m.
Classes are offered for kindergarten through 11th-grade students, with groups and eligibility determined by the most recently completed grade level. Campers will be divided into five different age groups and will rotate through four different classes each day. A showcase for friends and family will be held on the final day of camp.
Children in kindergarten through seventh grade will participate in classes that focus on acting, dancing, singing and improvisation. Campers in grades eight through 11 will present a one-act play. Students will participate in auditions, rehearsals, character development, and set and costume construction.
“Theatre Camp is one of the highlights of our year here at Theatre Tuscaloosa,” said Managing Director Adam Miller. “Having about 100 young people engaged in learning all about performing inspires everyone!”
Cost of registration is $262 for each camper and includes a Theatre Camp T-shirt. Registration is limited to 20 campers per age group and operates on a first-come-first-served basis. Early registration is recommended as classes fill up quickly.
“Nurturing creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression at an early age will benefit our campers throughout their lives,” said TCT Artistic Coordinator Drew Baker. “The lessons they learn here will help them everywhere from the classroom to the board room.”
Camp instructors are seasoned theatre professionals who have demonstrated their talents both on stage and off. This year’s Theatre Camp instructors include Stephen Tyler Davis, Brent Jones, Merry Livingston, Sara Margaret Cates and Rhonda Wooley.
