This camp will challenge students to think deeply about their characters, deep enough to make quick decisions about them. They will be asked to think about costuming and props for their character, and will then incorporate them into their performance.

Lion King - Show in a Week    
Being in a musical can be a crazy, action packed, and long process, but in this camp we’re going to shrink that process down into a week and perform portions of the classic Disney musical, The Lion King! With some of your favorite songs, powerful, hilarious scenes, and colorful characters this will be a musical experience in one week. When you have several weeks to memorize lines and choreography and music it can be easy to go through the motions, but condensing the entire process down to a week challenges you to delve deeply into characters, feel the power of the music, and express all of it through dance!
