The Artist Series Presents CAMP BROADWAY, 6/18-22

Camp Broadway®, presented by The Artist Series, returns to Jacksonville for its 12th year from Monday, June 18 – Friday, June 22, 2012 from 8:30AM – 5:00PM at the Wilson Center for the Arts on Florida State College at Jacksonville's South Campus.

Camp Broadway® introduces young people aged 10 to 17 to the world of Broadway on-stage and behind the scenes. Campers work with Broadway directors, choreographers and musical directors to receive training in acting, scene study, improvisation, music theory, solo and ensemble singing, movement, and dance.  This five-day performing arts program offers each camper the opportunity to expand his or her creative talents, build self-esteem, learn the art of collaboration, and gain a fuller respect and understanding of musical theatre. 

Camp Broadway® has been proclaimed the "Camp of Dreams" for starry-eyed kids who are just beginning to dream of being on Broadway someday.  It is a self-contained summer workshop that travels around the country bringing Broadway to kids.  The 40 hours of camp include singing, dancing and master classes for kids ages 10 to 17.  No singing, dancing, or acting experience necessary - just a willingness to have fun and a curiosity about what happens on stage and behind the curtain! 

Applications are still being accepted for Camp Broadway®, and tuition is $550.00 per camper, with half due at time of registration.  Space is limited to 100 campers.  Contact Katherine McManus at (904) 632-3015 or email kmcmanus@fscj.edu for applications and for more details. 

With authentic Broadway instructors teaching dance routines and musical numbers at the same break-neck speed as A real BROADWAY show, Camp Broadway® is a fun-filled week of activities designed to teach kids about the serious business of live theater.  One activity is our annual Salute to Singin' and Dancin' Kids™ (a special luncheon where campers meet and hear about the various theater jobs from real theater professionals). 

Camp Broadway® will be held Monday, June 18 to Friday, June 22 at the Wilson Center for the Arts at 11901 Beach Blvd.  Camp hours are 8:30AM to 5:00PM each day.  For applications and for more information on Camp Broadway® in Jacksonville at the Wilson Center for the Arts, please call Katherine McManus at (904) 632-3015 or email kmcmanus@fscj.edu.
