Maples Repertory Theatre provides three separate summer camps to tend to artists of all ages and experience levels.
Teen Camp (June 4 – 17, 2018): Me, My Selfie and I
Teen Camp provides young actors and technicians the opportunity to hone their craft. A classical theatre piece is chosen that will challenge and excite our young students – from Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde. Students in the “performance track” perform their piece at the end of approximately two weeks of rehearsals. Those in the “tech track” have opportunities for hands on work and mentorship in directing, stage management, the scene shop, costume shop and more! Additional classes relevant to the production are also provided. Performance track spots are available via audition only.
Performance Dates: June 16, 2018 @ 10AM & 7:30PM and June 17, 2018 @ 6PM
Performance Camp (June 25 – 30, 2018): Giants in the Sky
Performance camp explores the exciting world of musical theatre! All attendees are cast and taught a musical in our 5 day rehearsal process then perform for parents and friends! Additional workshops may be taught throughout the week as rehearsal time permits. Performance camp is an excellent opportunity for students age 8 – 18, and is appropriate for both the beginner and the advanced performer. The result of this camp is a fully costumed, choreographed, one hour long musical fun for the whole family. Previous shows have included Calamity Jane and the Showdown at Dry Gulch, We are Monsters!, and Musicville.
Performance Dates: June 30, July 4, and July 7, 2018 @ 10AM
