Camp to take students through looking glass
Denton Community Theatre’s Theatre School will start summer musical theater camp on June 25. The summer camp is producing a musical, Alice in Wonderland.
Students will audition for roles in the musical and will study character development, stage movement and musical theater vocals through rehearsals. Some campers will also study the technical parts of musical theater, both backstage and in the theater’s house.
The camp is for youths ages 11 to 18, and tuition is $450. The camp is taught by trained theater teachers, and the musical is adapted by Denton performer and retired theater teacher John Evarts, who just appeared in the leading role of Tevye in Denton Community Theatre’s recent staging of Fiddler on the Roof.
Camp will be from noon to 5 p.m. weekdays from June 25 through July 29.
To register, call the theater school at 940-383-1356 or the Denton Community Theatre business office at 940-382-7014.
