Theater Creations Camp



Theater Creations Camp

The perfect summer camp for young aspiring performers!


What is "Theater Creations Camp" ?

This August, Chatham Community Players will offer a two-week theater arts camp for children ages 7-10 lead by Scott Tyler, the Camp Director/Instructor. Our campers will learn the fundamentals of acting onstage while using their imaginations and artistic creativity to develop their very own play!  Through various games and exercises, our campers will also learn about different theatrical elements and how they are used to shape a performance. An original script will be created using the campers chosen storyline and characters. This work will be rehearsed and ultimately performed on the CCP stage. The camp culminates in a full performance with no scripts in hand for family and friends.

Camp runs from Monday August 6th through Friday August 17th (weekdays).
