This summer, parents can keep kids physically active and mentally engaged by signing them up for the USCB Center for the Arts and Beaufort Children’s Theatre summer theatre camps now open for registration. Aspiring actors ages 7-11 are invited to participate in a two-week theatre camp from June 17 to 28 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The theme of the 2013 camp is “Oh the places you will go…” a Dr. Seuss inspired camp. Campers will engage in all aspects of musical theater while gaining self-confidence and the ability to express themselves as they learn basic acting skills, vocal instruction and choreography.
The highlight of the camp will be the children’s creation of their own Broadway style revue. Camp fee is $250.
New this summer is a camp for ages 12- 15 called Theatrix, taking place from July 29 to August 9 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Campers will be working toward a public performance of “The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet” by Petret Loedel on Friday, August 9 at 7 p.m. A whimsical reinvention of Shakespeare’s tragic love story, complete with rhymed couplets, creative wordplay and fantastical machines — similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with if he ever had his way with the script. Camp fee $275, discount for early registration by June 15 is $250.
To register, call the USCB Center for the Arts box office 843-521-4145. Campers must register in advance.
