TheatreFest! to Hold Summer Camps for Area Children

TheatreFest Summer Camp 2014

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area children have two opportunities this summer to unleash their creative energy at Lindsey Wilson College.

The LWC Theatre Program will hold two sessions of TheatreFest! Summer Camp, both for area children from ages 8-18. The sessions will be held from 9 a.m.-noon CT June 10-14 and from 9 a.m.-noon CT June 24-28.

Each session will be different, but both sessions will include lessons in acting, movement, stage combat and singing. The cost for each weeklong session is $75. Children may enroll in either or both sessions. Each session will conclude with a showcase performance by campers.

The sessions will be taught by LWC Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock and LWC Theatre Program students.

"This should be very exciting," said Brock, who is also TheatreFest! artistic director. "It's a wonderful way to expose children to the performing arts."

Middle school and high school students will work on scenes from plays, while younger children will help create their own stories.

"This is about about creativity," Brock said. "This isn't a camp designed for children who want to have a career in the theater. Rather, it's about helping young people learn how to be creative, and it's great way to experience what it's like to perform in front of people."

Brock said TheatreFest! Summer Camp is also "excellent preparation for students for when they have to make presentations, for example in school or in church youth groups."

Exposing younger children to the performing arts is also beneficial, Brock said.

"For the younger children especially, it's about engaging their creativity and getting them to explore and learn new things," he said.
