Young Voices of the American Theatre: a Youth Theatre Immersion Experience.
Since 2002, the Off Broad Street Players have offered a summer camp to the youth of South Jersey. This year’s camp will be held at the state of the art Levoy Theatre in Millville, New Jersey, during the weeks of July 8-26, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily.
Designed for all levels of experience, this camp will introduce 80 youth, ages 7 to 18, to the many facets of staging a theatrical production. The camp curriculum will consist of exposure to all technical and artistic components including:
• Lighting, Sound, Stage Management, Scenic Design and Set Decoration
• Vocals, Stage Presence, Acting, Costuming and Dance.
This introduction will allow the youth to get a brief glimpse into the many facets of a performing arts venue. Camp will culminate with a revue showcasing all the elements of the camp experience: songs, monologues and scenes, dance, while also incorporating the technical experiences developed. The show will be open to the public including friends and family of the students as well as sponsors and the community at large.
The camp will be staffed by certified teachers and theatre professionals as well as experienced volunteers.
Cost of the camp is $300 for the full three week session. Scholarships are available on a limited basis. To be eligible for a scholarship you must participate in the free/reduced lunch program and supply a letter of recommendation from a community member NOT related to the camper with your application.
To participate, campers must return their completed application (click here to download), with all supplemental information by Friday May 31, 2013. Enrollment is limited to 40 campers in each age group (7-11 and 12-18). If applications exceed these numbers, campers will be selected on a lottery basis.
Once the application/selection process has been completed, you will be informed of your status via email by June 15, 2013. Information regarding payment and other pertinent information will be included in your welcome email.
