Theater Camps

Bucket Brigade offers theater classes and workshops to challenge and encourage students to freely express themselves, work in an ensemble, and effectively communicate physically and vocally.

 

We don’t just “do theater games.” We are passionate about creating new work– honestly wrestling with ideas and communicating them thoughtfully and imaginatively through art. We love inspiring students to find their voice and communicate what’s in their head and heart.

Summer 2018

The theme this year is: “Let Go” – what do we need to let go of? What’s holding us back… holding us down? What are we holding inside us? What do we need to let go of concerning ourselves? Concerning others? How do we live more freely? The students will create three original sketches based on the theme, we will compose an original song and develop a short poetic theater piece from their journalled thoughts on the topic.

Instructor– Jeremiah Gamble

Actor, playwright and theater-doer, Jeremiah Gamble has been making, performing, producing and teaching theater for over twenty years. He will be working with students to explore elements of theater through on-your-feet-exercises and improv games and helping them craft an original theater piece.

Our Venue– Art House North

All classes and student showcase performances are at Art House North, 793 Armstrong Avenue, Saint Paul.
