A smash it since 2016, this collaborative camp with Portsmouth Music & Arts Center gives campers the opportunity to delve into the world of musical theatre through singing, acting and movement.
New Hampshire Theatre Project continues its Summer Camp programming with Build A Musical, a vacation experience for students aged 8 to 12. Now in its third year, this collaborative camp with Portsmouth Music & Arts Center gives campers the opportunity to delve into the world of musical theatre through singing, acting and movement.
The Build A Musical camp runs July 27 through July 31, Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm. The camp is based at PMAC’s building on Islington Street, with the final performance taking place on Friday, July 31 at 4pm in New Hampshire Theatre Project’s black box theatre.
Campers will explore existing musical repertoire – old favorites and modern classics, as well as drama techniques including improvisation and group writing to create their very own brand new musical. This year the program is running as part of Big Little Differences, a summer of inventive theatremaking for young performers, artists and dreams. The students will be creating work around the idea of making a difference in their community. The camp is constructed so that fun games and activities help the students collaborate, and create new ideas. Before they realize, the students have written a show - it feels like a kind of magic.
No matter the abilities or needs of individual students both Katie Juster and Erin Smith, the vocal instructor, tailor each activity so that all ideas can be shared, developed and eventually performed. The show that is created is an ensemble work, each student has a chance to explore their own passion, learn a new skill and work as a team to bring a unique piece of musical theatre to the stage.
Scholarships for all New Hampshire Theatre Project camps are available thanks to generous support by Partners Bank, formerly SIS Bank.
