Whether you prefer your drama at home or in a cabin in the woods, nexStage Theatre and Laughing Stock Theatre Company has two camps to suit your kid's preferences.
For kids grades 3-8, there is Camp Little Laugh, Laughing Stock Theatre Company's sleep-away camp Aug. 5-10.
The camp has relocated to Camp Sawtooth located eight miles north of Ketchum near the SNRA headquarters.
It features a traditional camp experience within a week of theatrical classwork in mime, improvisation, acting, art, dance and music.
Chill time offers recreational games, hiking and evening campfires. In the evenings campers enjoy lip-syncing, performing skits, or having fun dancing.
Price is $850. Scholarships and payment plans are available. A grand finale performance is Friday Aug. 10 at the nexStage Theatre.
Summer Stages Day Camp is back at the Community School campus from July 2-20. This camp provides a venue for young people ages 4-16 to exercise their imaginations and grow in wonderful and unexpected ways. The final free performance is at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum.
This theater day camp will focus on theater arts on and off-stage. Classes will include acting, improvisation, art, stage combat, dance and music. Kids will also have the opportunity to design and build sets, costumes and props.
Professional theater artists from the Northwest lead all classes. The camp is divided by age groups. Each group decides whether to choose a script or write their own.
Camp hours are 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. for ages 4-7 and 9 a.m.-3:00 p.m. for ages 8 and up. The cost is $425 and $650, respectively. Scholarships and payment plans are available. A $100 deposit is required at sign-up.
For details and reservations on either camp, call 726-9124.
