Summer is just around the corner and that means that it’s time for the sixth annual For Kids By Kids Theater Day Camp at Third Avenue Playhouse. Children ages 9 to 14 are eligible to audition for the camp at one of two sessions to be held on Tuesday and Thursday, June 8 and 10, from 6 – 8 pm at TAP. No advance preparation is necessary; students will be asked to read from copies of the script.
Bill Bauernfeind and Renee Kujawski return for a fourth year as camp supervisors. The four-week theater workshop runs Monday through Friday from 10 am – 2 pm beginning Monday, June 14. Workshop participants will be involved in all aspects of production including stage management, lighting and sound, set design and props. The camp will culminate with a full stage production of Something’s Rotten in the State of Denmark. Four performances will be held July 8 – 11, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 pm, Sunday at 2 pm.
This is the second time TAP has produced Something’s Rotten. The hysterical, historical farce written by Joseph Wallace is a favorite among those veteran campers. Based, loosely, on Hamlet, this spoof takes its own unique direction.
Tuition for the For Kids By Kids Theater Day Camp is $20. Support for the 2010 camp program is provided by Baylake Bank and the McClelland family. For more information call 920.743.1760.
