TFAC and TLT collaborate on theater camp for kids
Published 10:22 pm Monday, June 10, 2013
Children 8-12 years old will have two separate opportunities this summer to learn the basics of play production from casting the actors to striking the set.
Summer Theater Camps are offered by Tryon Fine Arts Center and Tryon Little Theater June 17- 22 and July 29-Aug. 3.
Sessions will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., leading up to a full performance on Saturday. Students will meet at Sunnydale Monday through Thursday and at TFAC on Friday and Saturday. Different 25-minute scripts will be produced, allowing interested students to participate in both weeks.
Performances will be a full production with sets and props, lights, sound, costumes, and make-up. Lynn Costine will work with students in the afternoons on creating the set, props, and costumes. Students will have the opportunity to construct and paint needed set pieces and props.
Director Marianne Carruth will focus on developing acting and ensemble skills in these young performers.
“The students will complete the week with a sense of accomplishment and understanding of what it takes to work with their peers and put on a performance from start to finish,” said Carruth. “We’re going to have a great time!”
There will be a maximum of 20 students per week. Registration through Tryon Fine Arts Center is currently underway for both classes.
