HU's summer theater camp features Disney

Posted: Friday, May 22, 2015

Join Huntington University’s Theatre Arts Department for its 2015 Summer Theatre Youth Camp. The camp runs from June 22 to July 11, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

It is open for all children and youth entering grades 2-12 next fall. The camp will be held on HU’s campus in the Merillat Centre for the Arts. This summer’s camp will step into the magical world of Disney. For generations, Disney has been the pinnacle of entertainment for children and adults alike. This summer, children will have the opportunity to experience some of the most well-loved Disney characters and music from classics such as “Mary Poppins,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Jungle Book” and more.

The camp will culminate in a revue-style performance of these Disney classics, showcasing the singing and dancing talents of all who participate. Two performances of “Step into Disney” will be held Saturday, July 11, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

During their time at camp, campers will learn acting, singing and dancing skills. Children also will develop language and communication abilities, creativity, social awareness, a positive self-concept and empathy as well as gain an understanding of the art of theater.

Features of the camp include: Expert guidance from professional directors and camp mentors; Participation on stage by every camper; Individual instruction; Fundamentals of theater emphasized; Daily games; Christian atmosphere; Camp T-shirt and Theater prizes. The cost of the camp is $195 and $220 if paid after June 8.
