Parents, send your Drama Queens and Kings to Theatre Camp this July
June 25, 2007
Starting this July 16th – August 4th, Trinidad Theatre Workshop, founded by Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, will be training young children in acting, singing and dance for Theatre.
With the establishment of a national entertainment developing company, it’s evident that opportunities for actors and performing artists are increasing. Committed to training acting professionals, Trinidad Theatre Workshop is launching its Children’s Theatre Workshop – a performing arts workshop for children ages 8 – 12. If your child isn’t exactly in this age range, you are welcome to discuss it with the camp’s organisers who can be reached at 624-8502. Teenagers are also welcome to assist with the camp.
The camp will run from July 16th to August 4th, with classes held Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 2:00pm at the newly refurbished Playwright’s Theatre on Jerningham Avenue, Belmont.
What’s different about this camp? This camp is tailor-made to suit every child’s needs. Children won’t just learn how to be better performers, but they will also have the opportunity to learn about the technical aspect of a production. Some children love to be in the spotlight, while others may want to learn how to create one. Under the guidance of experienced, degree-certified tutors, your child can choose to learn about Makeup & Costumes, Set Design, Props, Sound and much more. At the end of the camp, children will stage a production of Sonja Dumas’ Two Villages and a River.
Signing up is easy. Application forms are available on the website http://www.ttw.org.tt and can be sent via fax or email. Visit the website or call 624-8502 for more details. Places are limited. Call now.
