Theater Creations 2021


Calling all 7- to 11-year-olds who love performing!

Come and be part of The Chatham Community Players Theater Creations.

Camp runs Monday through Friday, 9 am to 12 noon ~ August 9 thru August 20

Young actors 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, kids will also learn about different theatrical elements and how they are used to shape a performance.

An original script will be created using the kids' chosen storyline and characters.

This work will be rehearsed and ultimately presented on the Chatham Playhouse stage in a full performance with no scripts in hand for family and friends.

Price includes a copy of the final show and a Theater Creations T-shirt.

The two week camp is only $325 per person.
