That's pretty awesome! We're pretty jazzed about it too.
PIC in PEC stands for PLAY INCUBATOR CAMP in PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY!
What is a play incubator camp? Well, PIC in PEC is a one of a kind play creation camp available to students from Grades 8 to 12. Whether you love acting, dancing, stage design, musical theatre or stage management, "PIC in PEC" has a way for you to grow as a young artist. And, just like a chicken incubates its eggs until they hatch, we will be working together to hatch some amazing ideas and assemble them as a play for an invited audience to see on stage at the Festival Players Studio Theatre. This work is also connected to some of the amazing music, food and art projects that make up Wellington Water Week this year.
At the end of our two week creation block, you and your collective of newfound friends and fellow artists will have created an original theatre piece inspired by Water Week and the communities that you call home. You will be a playwright and a performer with the Festival Players (Pfft...no big deal, right?!....Wrong!! HUGE deal!!).
Have a look through the details below with the people who may be in charge of driving you to an experience like this, although we ask that you be the one who types the answers to the get-to-know-you questions.
Thanks for your interest, and we hope to see you this summer!!
