About the Camp
In this week-long intensive, campers will go through all aspects of launching, rehearsing, producing, and performing a play! James and the Giant Peach is an ensemble play with roles for everyone, including leading roles, character parts, and supporting roles. Campers with an interest in backstage work are also encouraged to enroll! Our time together will include lots of fun, with theater games, improv, and activities to help us grow as performers. Our week will culminate with a performance at 3 which will be open to the public.
