florence simmons performance hall musical theatre camps are designed to build stage performance skills and guide learners toward self-expression. our one-week sessions offer an opportunity to hone the talents of “triple threats” aged 11 to 14 through song, dance, music, improvisation, theatre games, musical theatre and stagecraft, culminating in a grand finale performance in the florence simmons performance hall at 2 p.m. on the friday!
our enthusiastic, caring instructors will create a warm, supportive environment where students feel at home, and will be ready to explore and discover. camp participants will develop a joy and appreciation of drama.
our graduated approach to developing skills and confidence in our young actors and performers gives them the opportunity to grow through scripted and unscripted work, and to explore playwriting, improv, blocking, the elements of stage presentation, character development, and the basics of musical theatre.
the camps run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. monday to friday on the stage of the florence simmons performance hall, with a field trip to the confederation centre to enjoy the young company’s noontime performance.
fun for all, these camps are great confidence and skill building experiences!
