Temple Civic Theatre will offer a Youth Theatre Camp during spring break (March 10-16) for students in grades 2-8. Enrollment is limited to 30 students. (First graders will be considered with special permission, but keep in mind that this is an all-day class.)
This day-long intensive program provides an in-depth experience for budding theater artists with performances of the musical How to Eat Like a Child (and other lessons in not being a grown-up) at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, March 15 and 16.
Reserved seat tickets for the two performances are $5 for Youth (14 and under) and $8 for Adults. Tickets are available by clicking on the Red square on the right that says "ONLINE BOX OFFICE".
The camp will be Monday through Saturday from 9:30 to 5:30 and Sunday 1:00 to 5:30. (Pre- and post-camp care is available 8:30-9:30 and 5:30-6:30 for an additional fee.) Morning sessions will focus on skill building, stage craft and individual instruction and tutoring. Afternoon sessions will focus on rehearsal for the final performances.
Registration fee for the seven-day camp is $250, with additional students in the same household costing $150 each. There is an additional $50 discount on the total household tuition if one or more family members are TCT 2013-14 main-series season members.
This hilarious musical production is a romp through the joys and sorrows of being a child. It is based on the Viking book of the same name by Delia Ephron. Children give 23 lessons in such subjects as “How to beg for a dog,” “How to torture your sister,” “How to act after being sent to your room” and “How to smuggle turnips from your plate to the garbage without eating them.” The pace is fast, the tone is subversive and the recognition is instant.
The instructors will include TCT Artistic Director John Monteverde, who is a 25-year veteran of professional youth theater in the Pacific Northwest. As founding artistic director of both the Northwest Children’s Theater & School and the Blue Monkey Theater Co., he has directed over 50 productions for young audiences. At TCT, he has directed Count Dracula and The Odd Couple, both earlier this season.
Musical direction will be by Brenna Sage, who comes to us from New York City as guest director of TCT’s spring production I Do! I Do! She has taught at Hunter College in New York and the US Performing Arts Camp in Amherst, MA. She has worked as Music Director for the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the New York International Theatre Festival and the Hunt’s Point Alliance for Children.
