Registration is now open for the Thingamajig Theatre’s Summer Theatre Camp for Kids.
This summer, kids can come to the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts for a fun-filled, three-week camp where they will study acting, singing and dancing through many fun theatre games as they rehearse for the Disney show “Jungle Book.”
Kids will participating in a series of theatre games to hone their acting skills as well as learn about a lot of the behind the scenes aspects, including makeup, costumes and set building.
Camp starts on Tuesday, July 5, and runs Monday through Thursday until July 21, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Campers must bring a sack lunch, a water bottle and sunscreen — as some of our activities will take place outside.
The first annual Theater Summer Camp is run by the Center for the Arts Executive Director Laura Moore. Laura has years of experience acting on a variety of stages as well as running the Summer Camp in Lake Dillon, Colo. She is also the teacher of the spring and fall Kids Playshops where the kids write and perform an original work together. The camp is open to kids ages 7-12.
Cost is $300 for kids who register before June 25, and $325 for kids who register after June 25.
The final performance for the camp will take place on Thursday, July 25, at 5:30 p.m. All campers must be able to attend the final performance unless given special permission by Laura Moore at the time of registration.
The first week of camp is open to kids who are unable to attend the whole camp or the performance, for $150. Registration forms and checks can be mailed to Thingamajig Theatre Company 2313 Eagle Drive Pagosa Springs CO 81147.
On Thursday June 23, at 7 p.m. high school kids are invited to attend the “Final Dress, First Thursday” performance of “Sylvia.” The performance is free for the kids and, in general, grownups are not allowed. It is recommended that kids show up a half an hour before the show starts. Doors are locked promptly at 7 p.m.
