Get bit by the theatre bug with theatre for young actor camps (age 6-10)!

Theatre for Young Actor (TYA) Camps are one-week programs that aim to introduce young actors to the stage and the process of putting together a short play. This camp is designed for ages 6-10. The camp covers the basics of the stage, the basics of a play, vocal projection, characterization, movement and working with others.

Camps typically occur in June, and typically begin at 10am (running 90 minutes). The camps have a short capstone presentation on the final day for friends and family. TYA camps are peer taught and can accommodate 10 students in each camp. Registration typically runs $45. Camps are announced towards the end of April each year and registration will begin May 2.

To Register: Visit the AAAA at 618 Broadway or call 320-762-8300

ENERGIZE YOUR SUMMER AT THE STUDENT THEATRE PROJECTS (Age 10-18)

Kids and teens spark their theatrical imagination through this summer theatre camp. This educational program takes students through the production process, from audition to curtain call. The program culminates with a full public performance onstage at the AAAA.

All students registered for the Student Theatre Projects are automatically cast as performers in the show. Students take part in auditions to learn about the process, and to get placed in a specific role in the play. This unique experience allows students of all skill levels to learn dance, singing and acting skills while creating a tangible full-length production. Join with a diverse group of theatre-loving kids and teens in this multi-week theatre adventure!

The 2016 Student Theatre Project will be "Shrek: The Musical." Registration is open until the projects are full (projects will take 50 students). To ensure a well balanced cast (age wise), limits may be placed on certain age groups throughout the registration process (for example, we can't have all 50 students be ages 10-12).

There may be additional opportunities for a master class with professional actors at Theatre L'Homme Dieu (for an additional cost), as well as an opportunity to see a show at TLD and meet the cast. We are currently working on this opportunity with our good friends at Theatre L'Homme Dieu. We will let students know these opportunities as they come up.

To Register: Visit the AAAA at 618 Broadway or call 320-762-8300

Register Online Here or call 320-762-8300.
