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.
