Three female campers and Nittany LionCamp Description

The Discovering Theatre Camp is designed to introduce students, ages 10-18, to all that is involved in putting on a live production. Participants will learn the casting/audition process; assemble a stage crew and learn the various crew jobs; work the stage through the use of cues, stage directions, and props; learn the acting process through voice projection exercises, staging practices, and play rehearsals, and finally stage an actual production. Those interested in discovering their artistic side are welcome to join our week of theatrics.
