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.

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
