Pinewood Players Drama Camp 2021

Drama Camp Administrator Nancy Cummings and Assistant Administrator Lu Cross established a goal to
make the 20th Anniversary of Pinewood Players Youth Drama Camp the event of the season. By all
indications they are succeeding!

With the help of recently named Music Director Jennifer Adams the team has obtained an ASCAP
blanket license. The license covers the rights to thousands of songs and assures the legal right to
perform songs from previous productions on the Pinewood Playhouse stage this summer.
Retired professional music director Sandra Dyke has volunteered her experience and talents to
collaborate with Nancy and the creative team to help create the musical revue “Cheers to 20 Years.”
Based on productions performed in Pinewood Players Drama Camps over the past 20 years this original
revue promises to be a one of a kind, unforgettable experience for our young entertainers and their

The theme of the camp is “Everyone’s a Star.” It is destined to be a signature event that will define
Pinewood Players Drama Camps for years to come. The exceptionally talented creative team of Director
Micah Lawrence, Choreographer Rebecca Steiner and Music Director Jenifer Adams are joined by
Production Consultant Sandra Dyke and a cadre of experienced volunteers and producers. Together
they comprise a creative “Dream Team” the likes of which has never before been assembled for a Drama
Camp production.

Next add the secret ingredient, our incredible young campers, ages 7 through 18 years old. Based on
pre-registrations this group of youngsters could be the largest, most enthusiastic group in the Drama
Camp’s 20 year history. Put them together with our creative Dream Team, mix gently with generous
portions of fun, friendship, learning about live theater and top it with the opportunity to perform on a
real stage in a real theater with professional lighting and sound systems and you have the recipe for an
experience that will create memories to last a lifetime.

And don’t forget, Drama Camp participants can qualify to apply for the Pinewood Players Scholarship
Awards by attending at least two Pinewood Players Drama Camps. Visit our web site for more

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Nancy and Lu have one more big surprise that will
differentiate this camp from all others! Stay tuned for a special announcement in May that promises to
be music to your ears!
