2017 Summer Musical Theatre Camps!
In partnership with Lancaster Bible College, Servant Stage is pleased to offer two musical theatre camps for student’s ages 10-18. Students will rehearse and perform a full-length student production and participate in daily workshops and masterclasses with a camp staff of experienced theatre professionals. Both camps will be directed by Servant Stage Artistic Director, Wally Calderon.
Camp runs from 9am-5pm each day. The performance for family and friends will be at 3pm on Saturday afternoon at Lancaster Bible College. The final 3 days of camp feature masterclasses in the morning and touring performances for local retirement communities in the afternoon. Transportation is provided.
Cost includes camp t-shirt, all materials and handouts, daily rehearsals with the Servant Stage staff, and workshops and masterclasses with other theatre professionals. Students will need to bring their own lunch, snacks, and water bottles.
"Being a part of Servant Stage’s summer drama camp was the absolute highlight of my kids' summer. As this was the first drama camp either child had attended, there was definitely some nervousness for both child and parent. However, from the very first minute, the staff was so kind and welcoming. One of the most encouraging things for me as a parent was that the kids felt a sense of belonging and importance. They were treated with respect and professionalism. I also really appreciated that my kids were able to serve the community by performing at various retirement homes. We already have next year's camps on our calendars!"
"Becky enjoys singing and dancing, but had limited stage experience. We contacted Wally, who assured us that participants of all skill levels were welcome, and would have a part. We enrolled Becky and it was the highlight of her summer, and she can't wait until next year's camp!
Becky learned so much from her experience. Following the lead of Johnathan and Wally, the entire staff worked with all levels of students; blending their talents into an unbelievably awesome performance of Godspell, Jr.. The seminars were informative; teaching, modeling, and practicing theatre skills and techniques. Her growth in the areas of stage presence and confidence was evident. She talked nonstop throughout the week; everything she was learning, her observations about the nuances of meaning that theatre evokes, her fun experiences with the folks at camp, and always with a sense of fulfillment with the great things happening each day.
On Saturday, we were absolutely amazed at the opening performance of Godspell, Jr.! The show was a fabulous presentation of creativity and performing arts. Ten days later came the final curtain call at Calvary Fellowship Homes, and indeed; the production team and cast had touched the hearts of all who participated in the camp and the many who were privileged to see the show."
