Even with summer break on the horizon, it's not too late to introduce young theatre fans to the engaging, entertaining and educational opportunities at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park's 2014 Summer Theatre Day Camp, June 16 to Aug. 1.
Cincinnati's Tony Award-winning theatre offers camp sessions in a new format this year for children entering grades three through 12. The full-day, one-week camp sessions run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and each week's session features acting and improvisation classes along with special classes based on different themes. The themes include: Broadway Bound (musical theatre), June 16-20; Theatre FUNdamentals (various theatre classes), June 23-27; Shakespeare & Swashbuckling (including stage combat and puppetry), July 7-11; Story to the Stage (theatrical improvisation, playwriting), July 14-18; La Commedia (circus training, clowning and comedy), July 21-25; and Backstage Pass (stage craft and design techniques), July 28-Aug. 1.
Parents can select the theme that interests their campers most or join us for multiple weeks and try them all. All experience levels are welcome. Classes are taught by the city's best theatre professionals.
One-week, half-day Creative Dramatics camps are offered for children entering grades one and two (9 a.m. to noon or 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., depending on the week chosen).
