Camp Weeks - July 8-12, July 15-19, July 22-26​

ArtQuest is a THREE WEEK, FULL DAY performing arts program that offers campers the opportunity to engage and perform in a musical theatre production. The daily schedule includes instruction in many aspects of musical theatre: physical/vocal/acting warm ups, singing, acting, dancing, set making, props, theatre decor, lighting and costumes. Our director has 25+ years of experience in the performing arts as a performer, teacher, as well as a director. This will be her eleventh summer returning to ArtQuest. The staff strives to instill effective technique, fun, discipline, teamwork and confidence (for life) in each camper in a non-competitive environment. During the three weeks, campers become a theatre family! This program is perfect for actors of all levels, hobbyists, as well as those who wish to pursue a career in the arts. This summer, ArtQuest will be producing The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition for your performers entering grades 3rd through 9th in the fall!

Important Notes: Parents, please send refillable water bottle, nut-free snack and nut-free lunch in with your camper each day. Campers should wear loose, comfortable clothing with fully enclosed, flat sneakers. Campers may also bring in a smock for the art portion of camp. We will be forming a Parent Volunteer Crew to assist us after the Friday Show!

Performance Days: Thursday, July 25th Full Dress Rehearsal at 1:30pm and Show at 7:00pm 
Friday, July 26th Show at 4:00pm with a Clean-Up and Cast Party immediately following!
