We have just confirmed we have the location for our drama camp...It is in Paulding Co., GA, in the general vicinity of the intersection of highway 120 and highway 92 (eastern Paulding co.). The dates are July 5-15. It is 2 weeks, for about four hours a day, with a performance Fri night the 15th. It is meant for ages 10-14; younger kids can only participate if a parent remains. There is also a place for older teens to volunteer. There are a couple of paid staff positions available, a few slots for volunteers, and 25 slots for paid participants ($175). The focus will not be on putting on a play per se...it will be a variety, including improvisation, mime, monologues, audition preparation, stage makeup, sets and props, etc. Lots of Fun!! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For those who are far away and drooling...Remember our goal is to be able to plant programs all across the United States (I love being grandiose!). We used to do this camp all the time when it was actually me directing...this will be the first time we're putting it on with others in staff positions...As soon as we figure out how to do it right this way, we will be open to the idea of sponsoring programs in other areas. Just stay in touch.
One of our goals is to turn this into a "trailer theatre".. I was involved in one of these in eighth grade. We spent the first part of the summer learning about all aspects of theatre and preparing a play, then spent the second half presenting it at various venues throughout the city of Milwaukee, mostly parks and playgrounds. Our vision is to do it at summer Bible camps at the churches....
P.S. It is my husband's birthday today! And Laura is busy planning her wedding. (My first to get engaged...) Life is good!
