Academy Mask Policy – 2022
The Academy Center of the Arts requires that all students participating in our classes regardless of vaccination status wear a mask while on our campus. All staff are required to wear masks while on site regardless of vaccination status.
Students will go from auditions to performance in just five days with Compass Creative Dramatics, a Chicago-based touring theatre who will be hosting a week-long theatre residency at the Academy. Students in grades 1 – 12 will stretch their creativity and bravery muscles through daily rehearsals for Wizard of Oz. Students also perform alongside two professional actors during the week and will participate in acting classes from those directors in the afternoon! No acting experience necessary – just come ready to be silly and have fun! This camp will be rehearsing and performing in our Joy and Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre.
ABOUT THE SHOW: We’re off to see the wizard, with Chicago-based COMPASS CREATIVE DRAMATICS. When that little Kansas farm house lands in a magical land, you’ll meet a singing & dancing yellow brick road, the Ozians, the monkeys/ Monkees and many more fantastical characters. The classic story comes to life with fun and funny new twists.
