Rogue Children

Emily Sternard, Mizu McCarthy and Zeno McCarthy rehearse the Sea Monster scene during Rogue Theater’s Children’s Theater Camp.

The students in Rogue Theater’s Children’s Theater Camp have been creating a great summer adventure. Director Lola DeVillers has worked with the students to not only develop their theater arts skills, but also to increase their creativity – a key factor in lifelong success.

Students explored creativity and built dramatic art skills. Theater games and exercises stretched their voice, body and mind. Open scenes and improvisation helped students to embody a character, identify obstacles, and work to achieve an objective through a variety of tactics.

The students in this year’s camp range in age from 9 to 14 and come from all over Door County, representing five different school districts, including Southern Door, St. John Bosco, Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol and Gibraltar. Students have worked on scripts, set design, costumes and props. Together they will present a public performance of their work on July 19 at 2 pm at The Depot Performing Arts Center, 341 N. 3rd Ave., Sturgeon Bay. A suggested $5 donation will be asked at the door.
