Camp Descriptions:

"A Play A Day" (APAD) campers start each day with some physical warm-ups and acting games. Then they hear a story told by "Master Storyteller" Jennifer Justice. For the rest of the day (except for fruit break, lunch and rest time) the campers turn the story into a story-theatre show and perform the show for a small group of family and friends at the end of each day. APAD campers may register for as many days as they wish, from one to all.

At DRT two-week “Children's Theatre Camps,” campers play acting games, throw themselves enthusiastically into physical, imaginative and vocal theatre warm-ups, and find out what it takes to put on a show from auditions through rehearsals, set-design, creating costumes and props to the big finale of two public performances.

Students should have had at least one-year of reading learning in a school or home-school setting, and be able to follow-along in a reading of the script (with support from our teen teaching interns on the big words.)

“Teen Theatre Intensive” is designed for youths with a strong interest in theatre, at whatever level of experience. In two-weeks, Teen Intensive students take a full-length show from idea to performance for public audiences. Along the way they gain knowledge of the focus, commitment, and risk-taking that are involved in a professional actor’s exciting work. Teen actors will find themselves growing in talent, skill and confidence. (No Cell Phone Use during Camp Hours)
