Theater Camp 2019
(for children who have completed 1st through 6th grades)

July 29 – August 2, 2019
Monday – Friday 9:00AM – 3:00PM
Performance Obligation: Friday, August 2, 5:00PM – 8:30PM

This one-week, performance-based camp 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. Recreation time is included each day.  The instruction is provided by experienced teachers, aided by experienced 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 Disney’s Winnie the Pooh Kids on Friday evening. Performances will take place in the Spotlights’ newly-constructed performance space, and participation in the performances is required. Each participant will receive two complimentary tickets for any 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.

Space is limited. Register early.

Online registration through the Broadview Heights Recreation Department will be available in mid-March. (If you do not have a WebTrac account with the City of Broadview Heights, please stop by the Recreation Center or call 440-838-4522 to set up your account.)
