It’s the start of the 2017 season of the Pinewood Players Drama Camp. Drama Camp is a great opportunity for children to exercise their theatrical ambitions in a fun learning environment. In addition to performance rehearsals, campers will participate in creative drama activities meant to develop acting skills and an appreciation for and understanding of the theater craft. Kidz Kamp is the camp for younger children, ages 7 to 11. Teen Camp is the camp for older children from ages 12 to 18.
Kidz Kamp Ages 7 to 11: This year Kidz Kamp will be presenting the production Forty-Five Minutes From Broadway. This production is in the grand tradition of 42nd Street and the great Broadway musicals with songs from George M. Cohan. Kidz Kamp’s young thespians learn the basics of acting, singing, projecting, and memorization during the two weeks of camp. We have a seasoned Director in Lynn Rouyer and four camp counselors, as well as several adult supervisors, to work with the children. Tuition is $150 per camper. Performance tickets are $10 each and can be purchased online here, or at the box office. Enrollment in Kidz Kamp is limited to 25 campers.

This fun-filled tribute to the 1980s features nods to 80s teen movies and celebrities and a rockin’ score that captures the hit sounds of the decade.
