WCU announces summertime theater camp

Written by 

Western Carolina University’s College of Fine and Performing Arts is hosting a theater summer camp from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m.  Monday through Friday July 16 to 20 at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts with an end-of-camp Friday Showcase performance at 6 p.m. July 20.

The summer camp is for children from 8 years (and who have completed the second grade) to 17 years old and is limited to 30 students. The camp will include games, improvisation, stage direction, basic directing, character work, discussion, tours and more. Students will work in small groups to create characters and situations that will evolve into short scenes for the Friday Showcase. Two professional actors with Bright Star Children’s Theatre, an Asheville theater company, will run the camp.

No previous theater experience is required for participation, but children with a theater background are welcome. The cost of the camp is $110 per child, with additional children from the same family able to register for $100 each. Campers must provide their own snacks and beverages. Registration is under way through Friday, July 13, with payment (cash and check only) due the first day of camp. 828.227.2505 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
