Tecumseh Youth Theatre (TYT) and Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) are hosting drama camp sessions for elementary, middle, and high school students this summer. The camps are sponsored by TYT and TCA. All three camps are taking place at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts located at 400 North Maumee Street in Tecumseh.
The elementary camp is geared for students entering 2nd - 5th grades in the fall. The camp will take place July 11-15 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday. The youngest of our performers will learn all about live theater from on stage performances to behind the scenes. This camp will provide students the opportunity to perform live on stage or work behind the scenes with a final performance on Friday evening. The cost is just $120 per student and $100 for each additional student in the same family. Youth attending camp should bring their sack lunch each day.
Middle school students entering 6th-9th grade can participate in the Middle School Camp scheduled for July 18-22 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday. As middle school students, this camp will provide more hands-on training and instruction on what it takes to put on a live performance. Attendees will learn music, dance, and acting as well as set construction and technical support. A final performance will conclude with a show on Friday evening. The cost is just $120 per student and $100 for each additional student in the same family. Youth attending camp should bring their sack lunch each day.
High school students entering 10th grade through graduating seniors can participate in a one-week camp July 25-29. This year’s camp will be a little more challenging but always fun as participants learn a little more difficult dance routines, engage in exciting vocal experiences and even learn some modern takes on Shakespeare. Of course students will also receive hands-on training with lights, stage props, costumes, sound and light boards. The cost is just $120 per student and $100 for each additional student in the same family. Youth attending camp should bring their sack lunch each day.
The TYT and TCA are thrilled to have additional staffing this year featuring recent music theater graduates in addition to Tecumseh Youth Theatre Directors and staff from Tecumseh Center for the Arts.
Space is limited so youth should register as soon as possible! Registration forms can be printed from the TCA website or picked up at the TCA Box Office, Monday-Tuesday-Thursday-Friday from 12-5:00 pm. All camp materials will be provided by TCA/TYT.
