St. Thomas Playhouse is offering its outstanding “Company B Performing Arts Day Camp” for kids ages 4-13 right after school is dismissed—Monday, June 10 through Saturday, June 22.
The younger set, 4-7 years, attends from 9 a.m. to noon, and youth from 8-13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. First week is held at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Ketchum, and second week at the Community School in Sun Valley. Costs run from $350 to $475.
The playhouse enlists a professional team of theater and music instructors to teach the campers acting, singing, movement and choreography.
It culminates in one big show, “Disney’s Aladdin Jr.”, on June 20-22 at the Community School Theater in Sun Valley for 2 p.m. matinees that will attract families, friends and the community.
For parents seeking a longer day for their kids, there is also “Company B Club” afternoon day care until 3 p.m. It is offered for the younger children, ages 4-7.
For youth ages 10-18, the “Summer Performing Arts Conservatory Camp” or SPACC is an ideal opportunity for more in-depth study and fun.
The sleep-away camp is held at beautiful Camp Perkins in the Sawtooth Mountains from June 24-29. Guest artists from around the country, along with local professionals, teach the campers acting, singing, film, dancing and rock band performance.
Afternoons are reserved for outdoor activities around the lake, and arts and crafts. Scholarships are available.
For SPACC students, there is a special full tuition scholarship in memory of Sarah Adicoff. This scholarship is awarded to an exceptional high school student so they can attend SPACC. Sarah was a bright light on and off the stage. She lost a five-year battle with cancer in Jan. 2011.
Scholarships are available through the H. Edward Bilkey Memorial Fund for Company B & SPACC.
