On-Camera Acting (ages 13-18)
Starts July 16
Monday–Friday, July 16–20, 12–4 pm
This intensive and fun acting camp includes the selection, casting, rehearsal, performance, recording, and screening of comedic and dramatic scenes. Preparations for the scene performances include lecture, improvisation, and emotional exercises. Each participant will focus on two scenes (one comedic and one dramatic) that will be recorded by production staff with quality equipment and shown during a public screening the last day of the camp. Students will have access to the edited scenes after the camp has concluded. All exercises and scripts will be age appropriate. No prior acting experience required.
