CAMP MEDIA THEATRE STAFF ANNOUNCED

June is bustin' out all over very soon, and Camp Media Theatre is a part of the summer fun!

Starting up June 15, Camp Media Theatre promises to be a memorable, fun, and educational experience for youth ages 5 and up who have an interest in music theatre. With classes daily in Acting, Singing, and Movement for the Stage, there are five two-week sessions to choose from.


A talented and enthusiastic staff is in place to educate during these fun summer months.
Megan Rucidlo, Camp Choreographer
Megan Rucidlo returns for her second summer as Camp Choreographer, instructing Movement for the Stage. No previous dance experience is necessary to enjoy the choreography given at Camp Media Theatre. Rucidlo has worked with all ages, having also been the New School choreographer and having her work seen in last summer's summer musical presentation "Fiddler On The Roof". An actress as well as a dancer, Rucidlo has appeared on Media's stage in several productions including "Ghost" and the current "Hello Dolly".


Ben Kapilow, Camp Media Theatre Music Director

Ben Kapilow will maintain the Singing portion of the camp as Music Director and Accompanist. Kapilow started playing piano in elementary school, drums in middle school, and composing at age 14. He studied composition privately at the Julliard School of Music when he was 17 years old and then later on at Swarthmore College, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 2013, and at the Bowdoin International Music Festival. He is active in education, currently teaching piano and voice for the Meridee Winters School of Music in Ardmore and the Darlington Arts Center in Garnet Valley, as well as music directing for the St. Pius School in Broomall and the Mother of Providence School in Wallingford. Ben has collaborated on compositions with artists across many disciplines and has written pieces for dozens of grade school ensembles.

Veteran acting instructors Roger Ricker and Tim Haney will instruct the Acting portion of the camp, following the Sanford Meisner Technique which suggests that 'acting is living as truthfully as one can under an imaginary circumstance'. No scripted scenes are memorized. Instead, each camper has a part in writing scenes which are then rehearsed daily to create a semi-improvisational look at what is relevant to each camper at their own age and their own level of performance. No previous experience is required or necessary for this fun summer presentation. 


Andrew DePaul, Camp Counselor and Administrator
Havertown's Andrew DePaul, who will be a sophomore at Gettysburg College in fall of 2015, will be a Camp Counselor and Administrator, maintaining daily scheduling and organization of the camp. He's been in over 20 productions ranging from classic musicals to avant-garde plays and is an alum of Upper Darby Summer Stage. DePaul will add his own input into the direction of each camp show. (The camp shows or presentations are performed for family and friends the final Friday of each camp session.) 

Other counselors and assistants are Kyleigh Bleacher, a former "Vocalist" and "Delco Idol" contestant at The Media Theatre who is studying theatre at West Chester University, and Caroline Adams who returns for her second summer assisting with daily operation of the camp. 

Jesse Cline, Artistic Director, created the camp 15 summers ago and has seen it grow from just over 70 students to its now annual average of 250.
