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 2019

The theme this past year was: “You’re Not Alone” – Do you ever feel like you’re the only one struggling with something? Sometimes do you find it difficult to communicate or connect? Do you ever feel out of place, misunderstood or just downright crazy? Well… you’re not alone. We helped students develop a short theater piece using their own words from their journalled thoughts on the topic. They also performed an original song we composed based on the theme.

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.
