Mesa Encore Theatre's Camp Cabaret
MET’s all new Camp Cabaret offers up the total theatre experience in four days. Working alongside theatre professionals, participants will have an opportunity to gain hands on experience in improv, music, movement, acting, writing, directing, lighting, sound and set design.
DAY 1: GETTING TO KNOW YOU, GETTING TO KNOW THEATRE
Campers will spend the day exploring the elements involved with producing a live performance while participating in an overview of the technical and performance opportunities for the days to follow. We will play improv games, work on scripted material, learn a group musical number, and have hands with an intro to technical theatre. The day will wrap with an open mic giving participants an opportunity to show off their skills and talents.
DAY 2: CREATING PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN
Includes group activities in improv and performance followed by a “production meeting” where campers will outline the material that will be used in performance. They will also have the opportunity to choose the technical aspects they would like to work on. This will be a collaborative day spent writing, designing, and rehearsing. Campers will have the opportunity to work in multiple areas of interest.
DAY 3: REHEARSAL, REHEARSAL, REHEARSAL!
Day three will be spent fine tuning the performance pieces and the technical aspects to be incorporated.
DAY 4: TECH AND PERFORMANCE
The final day will be spent rehearsing with an emphasis on the technical aspects that round out any live performance. This will teach campers the ins and outs of tech week and the final dress rehearsal process and will culminate in a final performance for parents.
Camp Cabaret is designed for students between the ages of 9 and 15.
