“Acting,” Sanford Meisner once said, “is behaving truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” What better example is there of telling truths imaginatively than the fairy tale, a genre central to the theatrical tradition? In this course, campers will develop contemporary takes on classic fairy tales, using modern retellings to reveal “truths” imaginatively disguised. Campers will be introduced to acting, improvisation, and storytelling techniques, and each camper will be assigned one or more roles in a compilation of fairy-tales. The course will conclude with a performance on Friday morning for parents and friends. This camp is especially designed for children and teens entering grades 4 through 9. Read this great article in the Jamestown Press about last year’s camp with the JCT!
Ages 9 – 15. Campers should bring a snack and bottled water.
