The Calithumpians are pleased to announce that registration is now open for 2016 “Act Now!” Drama Camps.
A mainstay of Fredericton for generations, the Calithumpians have been offering their unique brand of summer day camps for over twenty years. Every week, the “Junior Calithumpians” get to learn what it takes to put on a Calithumpian-style show, by writing their very own play collectively with our experienced instructors and participating in workshops conducted by the Calithumpians themselves!
Our Drama Camps offer children and adolescents an Enviro-Drama experience with an emphasis on environmental stewardship. The week-long day camps are a chance to experience theatre first hand through our tried and true method of creative drama activities and participatory games. All week the campers will be active – acting, singing and dancing – making “Act Now!” not just a catchy title, but a promise.
The participants get to enjoy a peek behind-the-scenes of the Calithumpians’ Theatre in the Park in Officers’ Square, and view the live lunchtime performances by the professional troupe. Various members of the summer troupe provide specialized short workshops including singing, dancing, theatre games, and improvisation.
Each camp culminates in a short play written and performed by the camp participants that debuts Friday at noon in Officer’s Square as a curtain raiser for the Calithumpians’ Theatre in the Park performance.
