A Night at the Circus
Director: Kailey Rice
Rehearsals: June 27-July 1, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm
Performance: Friday, July 1, 7:30 pm
Location: Willow Bend Center of the Arts
This camp is designed for youth grades 1-8 who are Deaf or hard of hearing.
Students will learn the fundamentals of theatre and acting as they rehearse and perform a short production based on The Greatest Showman.
Under the direction of therapeutically minded staff, certified interpreters, and qualified volunteers, campers will create stories, develop characters, play theatre games, learn vocabulary, and put together a short theatrical production. The camp will end with a performance showcase for families to watch on the final day of camp.
This production will be fully inclusive with ASL and English interpretation provided.
