Drama Camp Production

Most of what I post here are things I do with my preschool class. Today, I'm posting as a mom and sharing some of my daughter's summer adventures.


 One of our local high schools has a phenomenal drama program. A few years ago, they started a week long drama camp called "Next Stop Broadway" for kids in first through ninth grade. In this week long camp, the high school kids teach the campers all aspects of the theater, from acting to props to make up to planning and putting on a finale production. My daughter has been going for years and this is her last year as a camper. Next year, she'll be eligible to be a counselor. Every year, I am in awe at the director/drama teacher, Mr. Steve Hansen's ability to round up this group of kids and help them put on a production from the ground up, in just a week. 


This year, they put on a production of Disney's "Cinderella Kids". I'm hoping video of that will be posted soon. Here's the music video they made to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe". I think they did a fantastic job and it looks like everyone was having a lot of fun!

  1. Ayn, this is wonderful, what a brilliant idea. Oliver, my husband, is involved in a local theatre group here & they run similar 'camps' throughout the year & I have seen the confidence it gives to the kids involved. Thanks for sharing it, the school building looks wonderful too - so bright & airy.
