The 2017 CAMP THEME is “Mystical, Magical & Medieval”
The Pumphouse Theatre Drama Day Camp is a great introduction to drama basics. Participants learn through dramatic arts to gain confidence, make friends and have fun!
Each day of the camp is divided into classes, covering a variety of acting techniques, speech, physical theatre play creation, and much more!. Emphasis is placed on group work that help to develop social and life skills. Under the guidance of our professional instructors, participants will work together within their age group to create a play. At the end of each session, participants will showcase their new talents to family and friends by performing this brand-new creation.
A $50 Discount applies to multiple registrations per family or to registrations received before June 10th.
Participants are 8 to 14 years old. Final performances are on the second Thursday of the two-week sessions, and on the Friday of the one-week sessions. Participants receive an official camp t-shirt, and a DVD of their final performance.
