2019 THEATRE CAMP
***AUDITIONS ARE JANUARY THROUGH MARCH 2019***
A New Kind of Summer Bootcamp!
“Child’s Play! Shine It ON!”
The upcoming 2019 annual summer theatre bootcamp, arranged, directed and produced by Lee Colee’ Studios in Wimberley, TX is bringing a new concept to working with aspiring young performers. For the first time all roles for singers,actors and dancers will be leading characters with no double casting. Kids 8 to 18 will also appear both on stage for six live performances at the Price Center in San Marcos, TX and in a completed film production.
Camp dates are June 10th through June 30th and include intensive coaching in a complete “triple threat” curriculum of acting, dance and vocal performance. For the first time, working in front of a camera the selected performers will obtain “demo reel” material for future auditions, and have a complete recording of the entire production, created by an award-winning young film director.
Casting is limited to 20 performers and are selected by an interview/audition, scheduled by appointment. Callbacks will be the first week of April with cast announcements made no later than May 1st.
CHILDSPLAY! SHINE IT ON! marks the 19th music theatre bootcamp that gives talented young performers the experience of working in a professional summer stock theatre environment. Industry talent from Broadway, television/film and dance who have served as camp coaches and assistant directors include Friday Night Lights cast regular, Kathleen Griffith, Disney World entertainer and choreographer, Amanda Forsyth, and New York’s coach to Broadway’s best, Susan Eichhorn-Young.
Many alumni and students from past bootcamp summers and classes have gone on into professional careers in opera, touring and recording, cruise line entertainment, teaching, musical theatre and national television and film.
Financial assistance from local businesses has enabled many performers to attend bootcamp who otherwise might not have been able to experience the opportunity to explore their talent. These business owners have been consistently supportive from the beginning and are proud to be known as investors in a child’s future.
CAMP DATES: June 10th through June 30th at the Price Center in San Marcos, TX
