This summer production camp will offer students the opportunity to rehearse and perform a full production complete with music, choreography, and technical support provided by a staff of theatre professionals and experienced instructors. The camp focuses on Roald Dahl's JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR.
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is sure to delight actors and audiences of all ages.
A day at camp will consist of morning theatre classes followed by camp activities and a full rehearsal in the afternoon. If students are not in rehearsal, they will be working behind the scenes on costumes, scenery, and props for the production. This program is geared for students interested in the performing arts and is open to all levels of experience. Students entering grades 6-10 are encouraged to register for our INTERMEDIATE INTENSIVE, an additional week of intermediate acting classes and prep for leadership roles (onstage and off) they will carry throughout the JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR. Production Camp. See full description for INTERMEDIATE INTENSIVE for additional dates and times.
Camp is limited to 20 students
