THEATRE WORKS is offers its twelth annual theater camp for children this summer.

Calling all youngsters who want to try their hand at acting!!  Theatre Works will be running a week of Drama Camp May 30 – June 2, from 9:30 – 1:00 pm each day.  Taught by OG Drama Ministry director Lee Knippenberg, with help from interns who’ve been through her acting classes, young actors learn the skills necessary to perform successfully on the stage. We include movement and vocal work in each day’s routine, as well as the basics of character development for both comedy and drama.  We will also be producing a children’s show later in the summer, and all campers will be included in the show!

2017 THEATER CAMP for CHILDREN
For ages 4 years - middle school

About Theater Camp

I assist each year at our summer camp.  The week, however, is conceived and conducted by Lee Knippenberg.  I met Lee at Oglethorpe University where she was directing its superb theater program.   Lee has an MFA, studied in Europe, interned at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, and played numerous roles in the Atlanta area before beginning her teaching career.  She is not merely a gifted actress, director and teacher, but also has the rarest of gifts -- which the best teachers have -- of being able to impart what she knows to all her students. 

It is, of course, not reasonable to assume that your child – after only fifteen hours at a week’s camp – will be a trained actor.  They will be closer, however.  What has amazed me is how much children who come to camp the next year have retained!  Much is said about the loss of learning that occurs during the summer away from school.  But, I see little evidence of that with our campers.

Our camp graduates have appeared in “The King & I,” “The Sound of Music,” “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Picnic,” “Traveler in the Dark,” “Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten,” “The Miracle Worker,” “The Homecoming,””Shadowlands,” “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” among others.  They have played the lead in their respective high school productions of “The Music Man,” “Bye, Bye, Birdie,” “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown”, and more.

I check the cost of theater camps throughout the state each year and believe the camp we offer at THEATRE WORKS is the least expensive camp to be found.
