Summer Camp!

Standard

Summer Camp!
Drama!
Together we  created a fantastic ‘Summer Play’ – through a series of improvisations, drama games, story-telling, creative movement and discussion – an original piece of theatre, stemming from the wonderful imaginations of the children was be created. During this amazing and fun-filled process the children learned the skills of the stage, including vocal projection, blocking and taking direction……but more importantly their stories were heard, workshopped, turned into a script and finally performed ‘live’ on stage in the black box theatre at the Electric Lodge!
Crafts!
Prop making, Posters, Fliers, Costumes and Programs – ….and together, oh yes, we made it happen!…..We experimented with all kinds of techniques to create our supplies, including felting, tie-dying, scanning and painting.

Beach!
To fully embody our summer experience we  spent time every day at the beach – swimming, boogie-boarding, beach-balling, sandcastle-making and hanging out!
