Eagle camp is back and better than ever
HAMMONTON - Is your star ready for the summer of a lifetime?
Eagle Theatre Conservatory, a year-round theatrical institute for all ages and levels of professionalism, has announced that a brand new curriculum has been developed for its 2017 Eagle Summer Theatre Intensive, a summer camp guaranteed to shine the spotlight on both training and performance, while offering opportunities for aspiring actors to build skills that will be applied in front of a live audience.
“This unique curriculum is designed to educate, enlighten, and entertain,” said Kimberly Suskind, director of Youth Education. “Campers will work alongside Eagle Theatre professionals in a safe and fun environment, brimming with creativity.”
Each day a variety of intensives will be held by professional teaching artists, including acting, music, improvisation, dance, audition prep, scene study, stage combat, sketch comedy, and technical theater.
“Eagle Theatre Conservatory offers opportunities for aspiring actors to build both social and academic skills,” said co-artistic director Ted Wioncek III. “Arts education is essential, as it paves the way for creativity, critical thinking, and assists in exercising one’s full potential. It determines the quality of our cultural future.”
Eagle Summer Theatre Intensive culminates in a fully loaded, on-stage performance of GODSPELL JR., presented on the Eagle’s original professional equity set!
GODSPELL JR. tells the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty, and love. Eagle Theatre Conservatory presents a troupe of eccentric stars of tomorrow ready to rock audiences right out of their seat! Chockfull of hit rock songs, and topical humor, GODSPELL JR, modernizes a series of parables by using a wide variety of games, and exciting storytelling techniques.
“It amazes me to watch our campers grow from day to day,” said co-artistic director Ed Corsi. “A participant may be shy and timid during the first week of camp. Then week two rolls around and suddenly they are full of newfound confidence. That is the kind of transformation live performing arts can help provide.”
Registration will remain open until July 9. Visit eagletheatre.org for more information.
