We keep our Summergglass campers moving as they take daily classes in physical theatre and acting! Mornings are dedicated to learning how to effectively tell stories through the art of physical theatre. Depending on the instructor, physical theatre skills may include tumbling, juggling, shadow puppetry, clowning, circus skills, and more! During afternoon classes, campers learn to use their actorsâ€™ tools â€“ body, mind and voice- as they create an original adaptation of a Lookingglass play. At the end of each session, campers share their unique performance with friends and family live on stage.
Program Updates for Summer 2013: Due to the changes in the CPS calendar, we have decided to offer a fifth session of camp! Please see below for details -- we hope that our new calendar offers everyone the flexibility to fit everything into the summer! Our program will take place in our Studio Theatre, and with our organizational partner, Fourth Presbyterian Church. Finally, due to the Lookingglass Main Stage performance calendar, Session I will be performing on the MCA stage!
Summergglass Daily Schedule Time: Monday through Friday, 9am-3pm Morning Drop-Off: 8:40-9:00 am Afternoon Pick-Up: 3:00-3:15 pm
