2016 Summer Theatre Camp was great!!!
We had 10 students participate, ages 10-15 years old:
-5 students were from Chincoteague
-2 from Accomack County
-2 from Maryland
-1 from New Jersey
We did ensemble-building activities, improvisational games, character exploration exercises, rehearsed an original play (Don't Question the Magic! (a Cinderella Story) , discussed classic (Thornton Wilder's Our Town) and contemporary theatre (Hamilton: An American Musical). We also learned about the importance of lighting and sound design in a theatrical production.
On the final day of camp, we presented our play for our family, friends, and the Chincoteague community.
Two students (Kelsey Malone and Shania Kellum-Phillips) were sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Chincoteague. Kwali Wilson was sponsored by small business owner Andrea Canfield.
Summer Theatre Camp is taking a break and due to scheduling difficulties, will not return in Summer 2017. Stay tuned for upcoming youth theatre opportunities!
