LX Theater Camp

2018 Theater Camp Performances

SESSION 1: June 25th + July 2nd: The Wind in the Willows

One of literature’s funniest and heart-warming tales returns to LINX Summer Theater. Follow sweet Mole, wise Rat, bad-tempered Badger and a host of other animal friends as they try to keep their neighbor Toad under control. Toad loves fast things and keeps wasting the family fortune on things that go vroom! Join the adventure and discover why The Wind in the Willows is such a classic.

SESSION 2: July 9th + July 16th: Tarzan

Let down your hair and go wild with a small child raised by gorillas. Tarzan always knew he was different. Yet his animal friends celebrated those differences. When Tarzan meets other humans, however, they find him strange and some think he is dangerous. It is an epic adventure about what makes a family and learning who our true friends are.

SESSION 3: July 23rd + July30th: A Midsummer Night's Dream

During one magical night a faerie Queen and her attendants will face off with a faerie King and his mischievous servant. Humans lost in the wood will be caught in the comedy. Yet all’s well that ends well. This classic is adapted for audiences of all ages. Using modern speech, campers discover a story they are likely to study later. They will carry a love for the comedy and already know well one of the most famous speeches in history.

SESSION 4: August 6th + August 13th: Pinocchio

The story of a small wooden child brought to life by a loving fairy warms the hearts of all audiences. The adventure is adapted for every age, with light-hearted themes for young players and darker adventures for the older. No matter which age, each performance explores a child’s struggle with discovering what is right and wrong. Join Gepetto, Fox, Cat, the Fairy and a certain talking cricket as they work to keep Pinocchio on (or off) the right path.

Philosophy

Spectacular original shows and lots of fun for the audience and the players!

At LX Theater Camp, our goal is to provide training, theatrical education and creative encouragement while building campers' confidence. Campers develop characters, learn songs and choreography, and enhance projection and stage presence, using memorization and imagination as tools to begin the journey. Our campers are also provided with intensives in theatrical elements outside of the show such as make-up, stage combat, vocal training, improvisation, etc.  Costumes, sets and props are designed and built by campers in each 2-week session.

Scripts provide the spark for a great learning experience! History and storytelling are explored by our campers, with a focus on what might be changed or enhanced for dramatic effect. Our phenomenal LX Theater Camp staff create an environment where campers are able to comfortably experiment and explore the world of theater, resulting in measurable growth over the course of the 2 week session.

Groupings

Masters and Legends are assigned to groups based on their grade level, but may be combined based on the show and registration for a given session.  Our campers are challenged, and trained, on how to excel to the next level of performing. Campers enjoy 4 - 5 periods per day dedicated to producing their big show, and additional training focused on developing creativity and confidence.

Campers who are not currently enrolled in a LINX theater class are encouraged to enroll in a program prior to the start of summer. Campers who are new to LINX and cannot enroll in a class during the school year may register for camp as well.  These campers are invited to a group audition to determine their comfort and skill level.  This allows the LX Theater Team to make good cast match ups to maximize learning and to have balanced performances.

The Final Show

  • Each 2 week session culminates in the production of a "Final Show".
  • A fun and interactive way to strengthen creativity and confidence.
  • An absence of "lead" roles puts all players on an equal level.
  • An entertaining experience for our Camp Families!

Each two-week theater camp program ends with a final production performed in front of a live camp audience. Parents and family members are welcome to attend. Shows are held on the second Friday of the two-week program and typically some time between 9:30 - 1:30 depending on the week and program. Specific times are shared with parents when camp begins.

Typical Day (Is there such a thing?)

This performing arts camp takes place at Dana Hall. Campers are challenged with 4 to 5 periods of theatrical training, lunch, plus a period for optional free swim or more theater fun.

2018 Pricing will be released soon!
