Every child is multi-talented and should foster multiple gifts simultaneously. The Building a Show theater Camp will provide students with the opportunity to write, perform, and produce their own short theatrical pieces. Students will implement collaboration, imagination, and performance skills developed in camp to produce a 10-minute piece for a live and virtual audience. This camp is working in collaboration with Building Bridges.
