2016 Summer Theater Camps 
Advanced Musical Theatre Camp
Zoom!
For young artists ages 8-14.

In this fast-paced musical theatre camp, young artists
put on an entire production in just two weeks...
complete with costumes, sets, props, lights and more.
Campers help paint sets, make props,
put together costumes all while also
rehearsing songs, learning choreography and getting
great acting training in character development.

The camp culminates in a high-energy hilarious new
musical written in English pantomime style--which
means it is overflowing with silly puns and site gags
along with toe-tapping tunes. SOLD OUT the past
four years. This year's production, Zoom, is the story of the Tortoise and the Hare as you've never seen them before complete with greedy corporate executives, wild racecar rides and more.  It is one of Hawes' best!

Dates: June 20th - July 1st, 2016
Days/Time: Monday - Friday  9am - 3pm
Location: DFT @ Arts Learning Center
Cost: $429
