PERFORMANCE CAMP: Out Loud: Create Your Own Play

Let’s get on our feet and team up to write and perform a brand-new play in a week! This is a unique performance experience where students will get a chance to work with a professional playwright to create a new short play and a professional director to rehearse the show in time to have a world premiere on Friday night! On Monday, students will be led through playwriting and character creation activities. Then our playwright will take your ideas and turn them into a script that you will rehearse all week and perform on Friday evening. Bring your creativity and join us for this fun and exciting challenge!

PERFORMANCE CAMP: We Will Rock You

Inspired by and featuring songs by Queen, join us for a rocking good time and sing rock ‘n’ roll classic songs like “We Are the Champions,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and “We Will Rock You.” This story follows two young rebels as they restore rock ‘n’ roll to their post-apocalyptic world where everyone thinks, dresses, and acts the same. We Will Rock You is a musical for our time: a fist-pumping, foot-stomping anthem to individuality.

All students enrolled will have a speaking role—some large and some small. Auditions will be held the first day and the casting will be determined then.
