SUMMER CAMP 2019
This summer, Theater Camp will run July 29th - August 9th, with performances Saturday, August 10th and Sunday, August 11th. All classes and performances will be at the Massari Performing Arts Center on the Trinidad State Junior College campus, corner of Broom and State Streets. Summer Theatre Camp is open to all students, regardless of experience, ages 5 and up. Training and activities are scheduled based on this wide range of ages and experience, making sure that each student feels comfortable and safe, while also being challenged to work together as a team, share their unique ideas, and expand their skills in all areas of theatre production.
One of the camp’s proudest components involves the life skills that campers use in building individual success. During the day, campers will work with a professional staff to learn to act, sing, dance, make sets and costumes, design lights and sound. In addition, they are taught improvisation and basic choreography skills. This year, the focus will be on writing and performing an original musical: from script and music to dance, design and performance.
Workshops and curriculum are often tailored to the unique skill set of the professional staff and to the content of the summer production. Students must be in attendance at all rehearsals and performances.
Summer camp tuition: $250 early bird discount (before May 15th), $275 standard price - (payment plans are available).
SCRT accepts cash, check, or credit card. A discount is available for families with more than one enrollee. Tuition includes a $50 non-refundable registration fee. No refunds after camp starts on July 29th.
Theatre is a starting point for careers in performing, broadcasting, lighting and sound engineering, architecture, teaching, human relations, and so much more. Local youth who have been trained by SCRT are pursuing educations and careers in highly respected fields. Many return to Trinidad to serve as mentors for current youth program participants.
