Activity: Each show is a  2-week camp. Each will have a culminating production, fully produced.
Most of our time will be spent creating the productions, but we will also have fun with drama games and improvisation. Performers will rehearse their shows, and crew will build and paint sets, operate sound and light systems, and help with costumes and makeup. In addition, all will play drama, improvisation and role-playing games. See above for show dates.
