The Thunderhawk Theater is an independent arts opportunity. The camp’s purpose is to promote enjoyment of the arts through interaction across grade levels and across artistic genres. It is a fundraiser for the Thunderhawk Theater program and an opportunity for musical theater fun in the summer! Both sessions will focus on the preparation and performance aspects of musical theater. The camp show involves some speaking and solo singing parts. Campers will audition for these parts through their activities on the first day of camp. All campers will be singing, dancing, acting, and playing improvisational games throughout the week, and all campers will perform in the show on Friday night.
Morning Session (9am-Noon)
The morning session is open to all incoming 4-8 graders (2017-2018 school year), from any school, interested in attending a half-day camp with workshops on acting, improvisation, choreography, and singing.
All campers will audition for singing and acting roles on the first day of camp. All campers will participate in the final show, in singing and acting roles of various sizes. Some campers may need to practice lines and music at home in order to be fully prepared for Friday night’s performance.
Camp workshops will be supervised by our adult team, but led by our talented high school camp counselors. Returning campers are welcome, as camp is always a new and exciting experience!
Afternoon Session (1pm-4pm)
The afternoon session is open to incoming 9th graders and will extend through this year’s exiting seniors. Spaces are limited as we will offer voice lessons and workshops with a focus on musical theater scene study. Afternoon campers will also participate in the Friday evening performance.
The morning session has a planned cap of 60 students, and the afternoon session will have a cap of 30. The evening performance is free and open to all family and friends of campers.
This year’s Summer Camp staff will consist of Ms. Kristen Statt—Theater Director at Lakota East HS, Ms. Rebecca Huddilston—Vocal Director at Lakota East HS, Mrs. Jennifer Dietsch—Vocal Director at Ridge Junior School, and Ms. Jennifer Akers—Vocal Director at Hopewell Junior School.
