This is our 9th Riverwood Studio mini-musical! These camps are beloved by creative kids who want a low-key, get-your-feet-wet experience with drama. The musicals are more elaborate than a skit and way less than a full-production. I wish I had time to run these camps all year long, because they are SO.MUCH.FUN, with all the SIDE BENEFITS of theatrical experiences.
ABOUT Amelia Bedelia Puts on a Play: In this original wacky musical, inspired by the beloved Peggy Parish character of Amelia Bedelia, a group of young actors embarks on staging a play. But of course, Amelia's directing is confusing, befuddling, and hilarious!
Participants will learn original songs written by Jill, help develop their characters and costumes, and perform for families on the final day of class. We also play drama games and practice projection and elocution. The kids will receive recordings of the songs to learn ahead of time and a copy of the script to read through. I will cast the show by the end of the first day of camp, and kids will be expected to work on lines and songs at home. We move at a rip-roaring pace!
This class is best suited for children who have a good attention span and self-control, can process directions quickly, and are strong readers and quick memorizers. Parents may be asked to help provide costumes and props.
On the last day of camp, I will open the Riverwood Studio Store for kids to purchase fun and inexpensive art supplies and edible treats if they would like.
