We are now taking registrations for the 2018 LCA Summer Theatre Camp. The LCA Theatre Camp will meet for two full weeks and is designed for the novice actor entering grades 2 through 9. The camp is an intensive introduction to acting and theatre for the beginning actor. Our goal is to teach basic acting skills to each child. We will introduce the campers to various aspects of acting and theatre such as improvisation, characterization, comedic acting, costuming, makeup, dramatic acting, set design, lighting, acting for film, stage fighting and many other areas. Each camper will have the opportunity to take part in a camp production where they will memorize lines, characterize, and demonstrate their acting and/or vocal talents. The camp takes place July 16 through the 27 and meets each weekday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an informational / registration brochure or pick one up in the main lobby of LCA. Register soon as space is limited!
