If your kiddo lives by the mantra that “all the world’s a stage”, they’ll love a musical theatre summer camp with The Stage New Westminster! They’ll enjoy dancing, singing, acting, art exploration, and more. All skill levels welcome in their fun and exciting classes. Each week, students will participate in creating a musical theatre production including everything from singing, acting and dancing to costumes, set & props design and production!
This summer, The Stage is offering new classes in four different levels –
Preschool Musical Theatre Camps: for 3 – 5-year-olds
Students will enjoy a full morning of singing, dancing, and acting while rehearsing a small show. Kids will also enjoy art activities and outdoor play too, to make this a well-rounded and enjoyable musical theatre experience for even the youngest stage artists. Parents will be invited to join the class for the last 20 minutes of the week to see what the kids have been working on!
Musical Theatre Day Camps: for 6 – 9-year-olds
The Stage Musical Day Camps are a perfect introduction to performance. This action-packed, fun-filled week consists of games (and lots of ‘em), field trips to local attractions, props making & set painting, all while preparing a mini-musical production (a different one each week), that will showcase our singing, dancing, and acting for family at friends at the end of the week. These classes are an excellent place for beginners to get their feet wet. No experience is necessary and there is no audition.
Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Musical Camp: for 7 – 10-year-olds
Children are masters of storytelling. This camp will encourage all participants to write, rehearse and perform a story of their own making from beginning to end. No script will be provided for the week, it will be built from the collective imagination of the group. With respect for all ideas students will explore music, theatre and dance to build their characters and their narrative. Students will also have hand in costuming, props building and art projects. The world premiere of the story will unfold in a showcase for family and friends at the end of the week.
Musical Theatre Intensive: for 10 – 14-year-olds
This program is designed with our more experienced performers in mind. It is recommended that students have some stage experience with dance, singing and/or acting. Students will rehearse a short musical theatre show, complete with vocal work, choreography and staging rehearsals in 4 days as they prepare for a public presentation of our work at River Market on the last day.
