SAMPLE DAY

A day in the life of a camper attending the Primary, Junior or Senior Summer Stock Theatre strats with a warm-up. The day then quickly jumps into a game or activity designed to reinforce the skills needed for acting, singing or dancing.This transitions into rehearsal time for the show. There is a mid-morning break for a quick drink of water and a snack brought from home. Then, it's back to working on the show all together or in smaller break-out groups.

Lunchtime in unstructured and gives campers a chance to relax, eat their lunch, play on the playground, interact in games led by counselors or informally practice their lines with friends. Primary campers also participate in crafts during lunch time.

The afternoon continues with rehearsal time and/or other activities related to the show. Before the day ends, there is a brief wrap-up to review the day and prepare for the next.

Campers are given scripts and CDs as homework for review and practice at home.  Regular attendance during the program is essential for student success in the program. Please note: students who plan absences of any kind may not be cast in speaking roles.
