Hippodrome Camps Explore the World of Professional Theater
May 01, 2016 10:19PM
The Hippodrome is offering another year of Summer Spectacular camps—Teen & Junior Ensemble and Youth Ensemble—for young theatre and art enthusiasts. During both camps, participants will have fun exploring all aspects of theatre, including performance skills for the stage and the creative work behind the scenes. The camps emphasize the importance of collaboration and teamwork with activities and workshops that allow campers to build interpersonal skills, create friendships and enrich their creativity.
The Teen (13-18) & Junior (7-12) Ensemble meets from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 13 to July 1; and again from July 11 to 29. This camp delves into the creative process behind a theatre production and culminates in public performances on the Hippodrome main stage.
The Youth Ensemble (5-6) meets from 8:30 to noon, June 13 to 24 and again from July 11 to 22. Campers are encouraged to imagine whole worlds and bring both new and familiar stories to life. Parents and friends are invited to the last day of camp showcase, where Youth Ensemble 2015 will share their newly invented play.
