The Coaster Theatre Playhouse holds 2-3 Kidz camps each year. Each camp focuses on three common aspects of theatre arts: acting, singing and dancing. In addition to improving confidence and creativity, campers are exposed to teamwork, respect and unlimited imagination while creating a show of their own.
Utilizing songs and characters from Grease and other 50’s style musicals, campers will develop a character; memorize lines, lyrics and blocking, and participate in the creation of costumes and props.
The last day of the session campers will present the show that they have created for family and friends.
Camp meets Monday through Friday, from 10am – 4pm at the Coaster Theatre at 108 N. Hemlock, Cannon Beach, OR 97110.
