At Festival Theatre, we believe that every child deserves a voice. Creativity Camp empowers young creators to express themselves through their art and gain self-confidence in the creative process. Each student is challenged to let their imagination run wild in our week-long art exploration. Creativity Campers will work in four artistic disciplines each day: visual art, drama, literary arts, and creative movement.
Featuring teaching artists from around the country who perform in Festival Theatre's summer repertory, these camps emphasize process based learning and personal satisfaction with one’s own work. "We believe learning through the arts develops individuals that are team players, innovative thinkers, multi-versed interpreters, and compassionate, tolerant members of society," states Seth Kaltwasser, Festival Theatre actor. "Socially, intellectually, creatively, and emotionally, individuals who experience the arts on a regular basis are better equipped to meet the challenges of our changing world." He adds, "It's also a whole lot of fun!"
Fees for the camp are only $85 per week which includes all supplies. Creativity Camp is held Monday through Friday8:30-3:30 for ages 5-12. Festival Theatre is able to offer affordable arts education opportunities thanks to our lead corporate sponsor, Royal Credit Union.
For youth ages 12 and up, Festival Theatre is offering two, week-long Youth Acting Intensives. The first week, Tuesday, July 5th through Saturday, July 10th, will focus on selecting monologues and proper audition preparation. The second week, Monday, July 25th through Friday, July 29th, will delve into the art of two person scenes. These intensives are $85 per week and run 8:30am-4:30pm.
