They will develop and sharpen skills as an individual and ensemble musical performer. The goal of Future Stars Camp is to take each participant to the next level in their ability to perform before others. Students will be critiqued, instructed and encouraged based upon their own skill level. Each student will perform as both a soloist and part of a small ensemble.  

Super Trouper Music Theatre Camp, July 20-24 for 5th-12th graders.  Campers will learn and perform the musical Bugsy Malone Jr.  Pre-registration is critical in order to receive performance material early.

Through this process children learn fundamentals of practical theatre, vocal projection, stage presence, basic choreography and make-up.  Emphasis is placed on teamwork, self-accountability, commitment, self-fulfillment through hard work and accomplishment and having fun on stage.
