• Special to the Leader & Times
Broadway Academy of Performing, a musical theatre camp for students, is now enrolling. The camp is celebrating 16 years, and its fifth at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School. Campers audition, rehearse and perform a full-scale Broadway musical in one week’s time.
Campers may attend one or both camps: “Annie,” the celebrated musical about everyone’s favorite spunky little red haired orphan, and “Cinderella,” the Rogers and Hammerstein retelling of the classic fairytale.
“Annie” is set for June 1-8 and “Cinderella” will be July 20-27. Campers can attend one or both camps.
SCCC/ATS is the host of the camp activities: campers, rehearse and perform in the Showcase Theatre, as well as stay on campus for room and board. Camp faculty and staff will be led by Alison Bridget Chambers, BFA in Musical Theater and MFA in Acting from The New School University, the Drama Director at SCCC/ATS.
Other camp faculty and staff bring professional performance and teaching experience to the camp.
Broadway Academy of Performing seeks to create a place where campers can grow and learn about the process of mounting a full-scale production in a limited amount of time. Even more importantly, the camp allows students to establish a goal and put all of their energy into reaching that goal. Broadway Academy of Performing is for anyone who has an interest in knowing more about music theatre production and performance.
In addition to exploring theatre, music and dance, participants will meet other people their age with the same interests. The schedule at Broadway Academy of Performing contributes to creative growth and the development of close friendships. Campers spend the day in vocal, dance, acting or backstage rehearsals in order to learn and perform their roles confidently in a week’s time.
