Bucket Brigade Theater Camp isn’t just for the singers and actors and outgoing kids. It’s also for the thinkers, the “quiet ones,” and the kids struggling to connect. It’s a way for all different kinds of kids to engage play, use their bodies and voices in an energized way to build confidence, make connections and become more expressive.

 

At Theater Camp students will be exploring elements of creative expression and theater through on-your-feet-exercises and improv games. They will be encouraged and equipped to freely express themselves, engage their imagination, work in an ensemble, effectively communicate physically and vocally and create a short original theater piece, in their own words, that will be performed for a public showcase at Art House North.

 

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.

 

The theme for Summer of 2022 is What We Share – Sure we have our differences, but right now it feels important to be reminded of all that we share. When we share our stories we get a chance to see each other and see ourselves in each other. Theater gives us a place to connect, find some common ground and figure out a way forward together. Students will write their thoughts about the topic and perform a short theater piece in their own words.
