“Play in a Day”
We’re excited to offer a new “Play in a Day” format for our Mini Camps. Each day of camp will have a stand alone product that will give students a well-rounded understanding of developing theatre regardless of how many days they attend.
The camp day begins at 9 AM with vocal and physical warm ups. The campers then move into classroom time until 11:30 AM. From 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM our campers eat lunch, socialize, and play outside (weather permitting). The afternoon is spent in classroom time working on their curriculum goal (a written play, musical theatre performance, or creative drama). At the end of the day each class will record their final product for the session and have snack as they discuss their accomplishments. Dismissal for mini camps is at 4 PM. During classroom time the instructors use a variety of lessons, games and creative projects to accomplish the goals of the class. Oftentimes these activities are so fun our campers don’t even realize they are learning!
Know Before You Go
All students must wear closed-toed lace up shoes and comfortable clothing to camp. Please do not send electronic devices or other valuables with your students, to ensure nothing gets lost or broken.
The Magik Theatre will provide an afternoon snack, and a drink for each camper. If your child has allergies, or you would prefer to provide your own snack please let us know. Lunch is not provided.
