Musical Theater Camp for 7-12 year olds
Monday, June 23rd - Friday, June 27th, 2014
Young musical theater actors from 7 to 12 years of age are invited to spend five days studying dance, voice, acting, and improvisation with an accomplished music, theater and dance faculty led by Peter Boynton. Michael Halloran will lead the vocal training portion of the program and Taryn Noelle will join us again as our dance instructor and choreographer!
The camp session will culminate in a musical theater piece performed for friends and families! This summer we'll be working on classic songs from Disney movie musicals like The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin.
Tuition is $200 per student. The session is limited to 25 students.
Camp Hours: Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm.
