After seven amazing summer camp seasons joyfully housed at Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church, we were both grateful and sad last summer to learn that this warm, welcoming congregation needed to fulfill their strong sense of mission by offering space to Temple Beth El, as they re-construct their own religious home.
DRT will always be deeply grateful to the fine folks and outstanding minister, Rev. Katie Crowe, at TAPC for lifting us up, so that by last summer we hosted 9-weeks of full summer theatre camps and reached our annual goal of 50% scholarship participation. We absolutely could not have done it without TAPC. Thank you.
Rev. Crowe was a great support as DRT searched for a new summer camp home; then, after 7-months the solution came through a casual answer to a group e-mail - We are excited to announce that DRT is entering into a "start-up" partnership for summer 2018 with Durham School for Ballet and Performing Arts (DSBPA.) It is close to our old home at TAPC, across the street from Durham School for the arts.
For summer camp season 2018, DRT will scale back to 4-weeks of camps - 2-weeks in June and 2-weeks in July. The 60-minute plays are original, funny and thrilling - We will have our Friday night audiences gasping with surprise and roaring with laughter! And through our new partnership with DSBPA, campers may even find themselves learning how to fly. Ages 6-12 - REGISTER TODAY at durhamregionaltheatre.com/theatre-camps/
