Ahoy, actors! Come join our crew this summer as we produce a play. Participants will explore the process of putting on a production in this multi-age camp where everyone will have a chance to audition, be cast, and rehearse a scripted play. This summer we will be working on a comedy about how the Jolly Roger got its name. We will also use improvisation and theater games to learn to work together, warm-up, and have fun. This is a great opportunity for young actors to get their feet wet in a semiformal play situation or for the more experienced to work on their acting chops.
