WCU to host summer theater camp

Written by 

Young people can explore the world of theater this summer during a weeklong camp hosted by Western Carolina University’s College of Fine and Performing Arts.

The theatre camp is for children from ages 8 (and who have completed the second grade) to 17 and is limited to 30 students. The camp will run from 12:30-5:30 p.m., July 16-20, at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center. A Friday performance is scheduled for 6 p.m., July 20.

The camp will include games, improvisation, stage direction, basic directing, character work, discussion and tours. Students will work in small groups to create characters and situations that will evolve into short scenes for Friday. Two professional actors with Bright Star Children’s Theatre in Asheville will run the camp.

No previous theater experience is required, but children with a theater background are welcome, said Paul Lormand, director of the Bardo Arts Center.

The cost of the camp is $110 per child, with additional children from the same family able to register for $100 each. Campers must provide their own snacks and beverages. Registration is under way through July 13, with payment due the first day of camp.

    As of last Tuesday, I am newly single. To be honest, I’m not happy about that fact. Not one bit. This was the relationship where I felt she was the “one,” a person I truly could see myself marrying and having a family with. That notion — a wife and kids — has been the furthest things from my mind for years.
