The Adventures in Theatre Summer Camp Experience is designed to involve young actors in all aspects of theatre production. Working with local professional directors, music directors, choreographers, costumers, and scenic artists the campers will learn basic theatre skills, how to audition, stage movement, and character development. After two weeks of theatre games, workshops, and even a little stage combat (for the big sword fighting scene), campers will be ready to show their hard work with complete production including sets, costumes, lights, and props on the Castle McCulloch Stage. (ages 8-18)
Half-day camps are specifically designed to introduce younger actors to the wonderful world of theatre. A theatrical experience builds self-confidence, improves verbal and literary skills, teaches children patience, how to work as a team, how to deal with the unexpected and to think creatively.(ages 4-7)
Castle McCulloch has it all! Obviously an uber cool castle, but also lovely grounds with many photo opportunities! They also have a separate reception venue providing a totally different ambience for couples looking for modern elegance. Must see venue!
A great Venue
