Theatre Design Camp

Theatre design camp is a unique camp offered this summer that will focus on the behind the scenes artforms that occur in theatre. Kids will learn about and practice three main areas of theatrical design which include costuming, special FX make-up, and set design. The camp will conclude with the children creating their own final design from any of the areas covered and presenting it live on Zoom to family and friends. Experienced instructors in theatrical design will lead kids through all stages of the design process from conception to execution. Throughout the several weeks, children will learn more about these distinctive areas of theatre, work both independently and collaboratively, and have fun with other creative kids.
