Theater Vacation Camp – Portland

February 10, 2020

Ovations Offstage/Portland Recreation’s Theater Vacation Camp

February Vacation Theater Camp – “The Wizard of Oz” – February 17 – 21, 2020 from 8:30 – 3:30pm

You can ensure your child’s February break is filled with creativity, growth, play, and the exploration of endless imaginative possibilities by registering them for Ovations Offstage/Portland Recreation’s Theater Vacation Camp! This camp is great for kids who have no theater experience to those who have participated in a few productions or taken a few theater classes. The teaching staff is well able to differentiate across experience and create a place for each student to be an integral member of the ensemble. All students will participate in the following workshops throughout the week: Stage Basics, Accelerating Imaginations: An Intro to Acting, Musical Theatre Singing, Puppetry along with theatre games and rehearsals for the final production.
