|Classes revolve around the creation of a full-scale revue of musical numbers
selected from the canon of great Broadway shows.
Students are divided into groups based on age. Over the course of two weeks,
the groups learn and rehearse ensemble scenes and production numbers.
Each group is guided throughout every fun-filled day by an experienced camp alumnus,
giving every child constant attention, personal assistance and advice.
Students learn healthy vocal technique, including proper breathing, breath support and voice
placement as they explore ways to interpret a song and communicate it to the audience.
Fundamentals of dramatic interpretation, stage directions and theater skills are illustrated
and practiced. Scene study and improvisational games utilize proven methods of
character development, motivation and objective to bring each actor's role vividly to life.
Poise and presentation are developed through the language of dance. From
warm-ups through fun exercises to polished performance, the choreography
incorporates a variety of styles, steps and razzle-dazzle.
Students design and make their own show-stopping costumes using simple arts and
crafts. The playful hats, props and accessories allow individual expression while creating
the ensemble look of each number.
Traditional set construction principles are introduced as groups work together to
assemble and paint scenery used as part of the final set. Theatrical lighting and other
aspects of technical staging are explained and demonstrated.
