While the Jan Dempsey Art Center is closed for renovations, we are going to embrace the change, and explore building theater in a whole new way! Grab your hard hats and get ready to dig into some different aspects of drama as we collaborate, construct, and create meaningful theatrical experiences together!
Musical Theatre Camp I, II, and III
Love to sing, dance and act? Then join us for Musical Theater Camp! Whether you have been on stage many times or never, this camp is for you! You’ll learn music, choreography and do character development activities for several Broadway Musical numbers. Each year we choose new songs and different musicals, so you always have a fresh experience. You will have a chance to shine on stage for family and friends at the end of camp!!
AACT Academy "Play" in the Woods
Happy 10th Anniversary AACT Academy and 30th Anniversary to KPNC! This year will be extra special as we celebrate these milestones. We look forward to partnering with the KPNC again to provide a literal “All the world’s a stage” experience. Wear your hiking shoes, bring water and apply bug spray. Using the woods as our backdrop, we are excited to explore theater techniques in the great outdoors!
AACT Academy Summer "Play" with Puppets
Explore puppetry with us! We will try our hand at: Hand puppets, Found Object Puppets, Bunraku Puppets, and more. Creating character with your voice is another critical component in the world of puppetry that we will play with in this camp.
AACT Academy Creating Theatre at Kiesel
All you really need to tell a story is an acting space, actors and an audience. However, spectacle makes it all so much more meaningful. Roll up your
sleeves and prepare to get messy as we write, design and create!
Working with Words – Basic playwriting techniques
The foundation of any play is the script and everyone has a story to tell. We will use age appropriate methods and tools, (crayon, pencil pen and paper) to create a script
Design – Costumes & Makeup – Sets & Props
After the actors create their stories with words, they will get to dress and decorate them as well.
*Classes will be held under the pavilion and in the Nunn Winston House.
