Do you have a budding actor or playwright in your family? If so, the Bijou Theatre summer acting camps are the perfect opportunity for young actors between the ages of 9 and 12.
Imagine a summer camp packed with learning, making new friends, performing on stage, and most importantly - fun! That's just what we've designed with our Summer Acting Camps.
Campers will experience the art of theatre. Each week, children will learn improv, basic stage skills and work together to write a play they will perform on The U.S. Cellular Stage at The Bijou Theatre for family and friends at the close of each camp week. Each performance is free and open to the public.
"These camps are a great way for kids to learn basic stage and interpersonal skills in the unique setting of the historic Bijou, which has such a colorful history and place in our city's past," says Lila Honaker, Bijou board treasurer and co-organizer of the camps. "Seeing the kids perform, many for the first time, on the Bijou stage at the end of the week is such a treat! We're thrilled to be a part of arts education for our future generations."
