Hershey Area Playhouse and Hershey Gardens Offer Gardens Summer Theatre Camp
Hershey Gardens and the Hershey Area Playhouse will offer the popular Gardens Summer Theatre Camp back for its eighth year. Classes for grades 4 to 8 will run July 13 through 24 from 9 a.m.-Noon.
Students will experience two weeks of improvisation, stage combat, scene and character work as they take a trip to Neverland in "The Many Adventures of Peter Pan," an original adaptation by Jennifer Feldser. This beloved story of eternal youth will be filled with swashbuckling pirates and rambunctious lost children. Instruction will focus on acting skills as well as stage combat, improvisation and character development, culminating in a fully produced, original production on July 24 at noon for friends and family at the Hershey Gardens.
The class is split between locations, with Mondays at the Playhouse at 830 Cherry Drive in Hershey on the campus of Country Meadows and Tuesday through Friday at the Hershey Gardens at 170 Hotel Road in Hershey.
Registration information can be found at the Playhouse website www.hersheyareaplayhouse.com in the Theatre Academy section. Registration is first come, first served, and attendance will be capped at 30 students. Once the 30 slots are filled, we will begin a waiting list.
