A.R.T. and 826 Boston to Host Summer Theater and Writing Camp, 7/14-8/15
The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) and 826 Boston announce the second annual Free Summer Theater and Writing Camp for children ages 11-16. Eighteen students have been chosen by lottery to participate in a five-week free Camp from July 14 through August 15. It takes place Monday through Thursday, 1:30 - 5:30pm at The Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute/826 Boston, 3035 Washington Street, Roxbury, MA.
This summer, the campers will write a play script, design sets and costumes around the theme inspired by the A.R.T.'s upcoming world premiere musical Finding Neverland, opening at the A.R.T. on July 23. The campers will create their production under the guidance of writing tutors from 826 Boston and professional theater artists from the A.R.T. They will also have the opportunity to connect with members of the Finding Neverland team during a trip to the A.R.T.'s Mainstage as part of the curriculum.
The camp will culminate in a one-night performance by the students at The Strand Theatre, Dorchester, on Friday, August 15th at 7:00pm. The resulting play script will be published by 826 Boston and provided to each camper at a special book release party later in August.
