CAMP MEDIA THEATRE 2015 THEMES ANNOUNCED

Camp Media Theatre 2015 is an extraordinary and exciting opportunity for young actors to study with Professional Directors, Performers, and Technicians. This intensive, two-week day camp is a fun, enriching and rewarding experience. 

Campers write, design, and perform an improvisational theatre production that is performed on the Media Theatre stage for family and friends the final Friday evening of each camp session.



Jesse Cline, Artistic Director, oversees all aspects of the Camp. Each day camp session is designed for children 5 years old and up, in three separate age groups. 

The unique and exciting experience at Camp Media Theatre 2015 begins June 15 with five two-week sessions from 9:30-3:30, each Monday through Friday. 

There will be 'themes' with each two-week session, with the focus being on learning and maintaining basic stage skills, singing, acting, and dance. Each day camp provides a unique opportunity for the campers in that they create their own 'scene work' in the acting class with the assistance of an instructor and director. Broadway songs and show music are added with choreography to create a Camp Show each two weeks which utilizes the personality of each camper.

The 2015 Camp Media Theatre themes are:

June 15 - June 26  --  LION KING CAMP-- Songs from the Broadway hit, plus other popular hits  

June 29 - July 10  --  GLEE CAMP--Songs made popular on the tv series                      

July 13 - July 24 -- FROZEN CAMP---Songs from the hit film, plus more Disney hits

July 27 - August 7 --OZ CAMP -- Songs from Wicked, Wizard of Oz, and The Wiz

August 10 - August 21---
DO RE MI CAMP--- Songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein from shows like "The Sound of Music", "The King and I", "South Pacific", etc

Our 2015 Teen Camp Experience is "The Who's Tommy" and is also accepting registrations. An entirely separate camp than our day camps, "The Who's Tommy" Summer Youth Project is a parallel to our mainstage Broadway Series, in which the youth performers work with a professional director, choreographer, costume designer, set designer, etc., and perform the show for public audiences for five weekends following three weeks of rehearsal. 

"The Who's Tommy" camp has limited availability, and begins rehearsal on June 15 at 6pm, meeting Mondays through Fridays for three weeks. Performances begin in July and the show runs for 5 weekends. 

All camps and classes at The Media Theatre are structured with the Sanford Meisner Technique which is based on the criteria that "Acting is living as truthfully as one can under an imaginary circumstance". This allows any age of actor to be who they are, with no pretending or pretense. Actors are instructed to follow their own instinct and to not imitate or 'copy' anyone else's performance, while following direction and enjoying being a part of the production or scene.
