Historic Elitch Theatre Summer Camp June 10-14

Historic Elitch Theatre will offer a one-week summer camp for kids, June 10-14. Led by experienced instructors and theater professionals, campers will engage in a variety of activities designed to develop their acting, singing and dancing skills.

“Our summer camp offers a unique opportunity for children to explore the world of theater while being surrounded by the rich history and ambiance of the Historic Elitch Theatre,” said Roberta Hamilton-Griggs, summer camp coordinator at Historic Elitch Theatre. 

“We’re thrilled to provide a fun and educational experience that will leave a lasting impression on young performers,” Hamilton-Griggs continued.

Campers will participate in a range of workshops and activities tailored to their age and skill level. From improvisation games and character development exercises to learning choreography and rehearsing scenes, every aspect of the theater will be explored in a supportive and encouraging environment.

The one-week camp will conclude with a showcase performance, where campers will have the opportunity to demonstrate their newfound talents and skills to family and friends in the historic theater. This culminating event will celebrate the achievements of the campers and showcase the creativity and dedication they have demonstrated throughout the week.

The camp will be conducted in cooperation with Theatre Source for Kids, an educational and informational resource for kids and parents who are interested in theater.
