From auditions to performance, young actors will be able to go through the whole process of producing a play. Using a children’s literature story for our base, the actors will be able to write some of their lines, develop their character, create their own set, costume and make-up design sketches. We will not actually be able to build their set designs, but we will use simple stage make-up, costumes and props. Be prepared to have them raiding the closets to find what they need! The actors will be expected to practice their lines and do some character development work at home.

$180/child (includes t-shirt, snack and materials to create simple prop and costume pieces). Payable to AACT first day of camp. Sibling discounts and need-based scholarships available. Click HERE for scholarship forms.

The AACT Academy Summer “Play” is available for ages 7-12. It will take place Monday – Friday on 7/6 – 7/10 from 1 – 5 p.m. at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center.
