Swift Creek Mill Theatre Announces 2019 Summer Day Camps
Applications are now available for Swift Creek Mill Theatre's 2019 Summer Theatre Camps. Two levels are available: Exploratory Camp for beginning theatre students and Performance Camp for students with some stage experience. Students may participate in both levels in one summer. Campers learn hands-on 21st Century Skills by engaging in dramatic and technical activities and producing and starring in their own show. Creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking are just a few of the skills youth learn as they practice performing arts onstage and behind the scenes.
Each year, Swift Creek Mill Theatre's Summer Camps serve up to 100 children with immersive learning experiences taught by area theatre artists and educators. Each camp is limited to 50 participants. Waiting list participation is encouraged. Back by popular demand is optional, prepaid "Before Care," in which students can arrive as early as 8:00 AM. New this year, Performance Camp will include an extra week of instruction with more technical workshops. Performance camp includes a production August 9 & 10 at 7 PM. In 2019 the camp production will be "Hairspray, Jr." Tickets and dining are sold to the public separately. Internships are available for both camps for youth 16 and older.
