Musical Theatre Camp

Ages 6* to 10

We are thrilled to announce this year's production, Seussical the Musical (Kids). Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favourite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical, a fantastical musical extravaganza! Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

The budding performers will benefit from the exciting diversity of daily workshops in vocal, acting and dance training, led by theatre, music, dance and teaching professionals. But that's not all! They will also participate in the preparation of production crafts, as they prepare for their performance for family and friends on the last day of camp. Costumes, materials and tickets to the performance are included!

This swashbuckling tale will win the heart of every soul who has ever longed for mystery, treasure and adventure.

Taught in a fun and creative atmosphere by theatre professionals, participants will be led step by step through the rehearsal process, as they focus on acting, comedy, singing, dancing and staging.

Children will also participate in daily, stimulating, performance-based theatre workshops including improvisation, clowning, puppetry, masks, magic, and music as well as making production crafts for their performances.
