Siena Heights University’s Creative Stages Program will host its annual Summer Drama Camp from June 15-26. Here are the following categories of classes by age group:
- Creative Play for children ages 4-5 will explore and experiment with creative drama activities that are designed to strengthen each child’s personal expression and creative abilities.
- Creative Dramatics for children in grades 1-3 will take part in informal drama experiences in which students will have opportunities to develop skills of physical awareness and control, verbal expression, concentration and problem-solving abilities while participating in small and large group creative dramatics activities.
- Advanced Creative Dramatics for students in grades 4-6 will develop adventures through improvisation, creative dramatics, story drama, pantomime, and theater games. Emphasis is on improvisation, verbal expression, role playing, character development and movement.
- Stage Siena/Young Actor’s Workshop for students in grades 7-12 will explore play building through improvisation and a variety of theater-based activities. Focus will be on improvisational theater, character development, movement for the stage, scene work and beginning acting techniques.
Camp instructors include SHU faculty members Dr. Kerry Graves, Joni Warner and Mark DiPietro and creative drama teachers Jeff Condon and Brian Isley.
Cost is $60 per child, $80 for two children or $100 for three children in one family. To register or for more information, contact Amy Sturtevant at 517-264-7890.
