Students in the 2014 DASD Summer Theatre Camp will perform plays July 23 and 24 at 6 pm in the Performing Arts Center. Sixty-seven students in grades one through nine and 20 camp counselors were involved in the camp this summer.
According to Anna Barton, one of the high school camp counselors, the theatre camp is open to 1st through incoming 9th graders, and they met 3-4 days a week for four weeks from 9 am to 12 noon. Students learned about lighting, makeup, building sets, and acting. They also worked on performances that they will showcase at the end of the camp to their family and friends. The performances, which are open to the public, will be held on July 23rd and 24th at 6:00 pm.
The 1st through 5th graders will be performing Stories Under the Big Top on the 23rd, along with the 6th and 7th grades performance of Shakespeare’s Inferno. On the 24th, 8th graders will show off their dancing skills in Drama Geeks VS Zombie Cheerleaders; while the 9th graders will perform Highschooler’s Guide to the Galaxy.
