Theater Camp is a one-week, performance-based camp that serves as an introduction to musical theater. Designed for children who have completed Grades 1 through 6, the camp is carefully articulated so that returning campers develop their performance skills by participating in fun, age-appropriate activities in the areas of music, dance/movement, and acting. During craft time, students work on projects that serve as costumes, props, and scenery for the production. The instruction is provided by experienced teachers, aided by teenage volunteer interns. Roles are cast on the first day of camp at the discretion of the directing team and announced at Monday’s pickup. Not all children will be assigned a speaking role.  There is no appeal process for casting decisions. No experience is necessary. Theater Camp is not a guarantee of casting in a future Spotlights’ show, nor is it a requirement.

The camp culminates with two performances of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Kids on Friday evening. Participation in the performances is required. Each participant will receive two complimentary tickets for either performance. Additional tickets may be purchased during camp. Camper packets containing scripts and music will be available for pick up the week prior to camp. Two scholarships (based on need) will be offered by the Broadview Heights Spotlights Community Theater. Applications for “economic-based scholarships” may be obtained at the Human Services Department. After-care can be arranged through the Recreation Department.

Note: Due to construction, swim-time will be not included this year, but age-appropriate recreational activities will be scheduled within the day.
