HUNTINGTON, Ind.— The Huntington University Department of Theatre announces the 2011 summer theater camp
production — “Disney’s High School Musical Jr.”
The students of East High are back in school after summer vacation and everyone is talking about their summer adventures. In Ms. Darbus’s homeroom class, Troy bumps into Gabriella, the girl he met and sang karaoke with while vacationing with his family. After a run in with Darbus, the entire homeroom class gets assigned to detention and must help with putting on the upcoming high school musical. Sparks fly and tensions rise as everyone at East High pressures Troy and Gabriella to “Stick to the Status Quo” and urges them not to audition for the school musical. But Troy and Gabriella “Break Free” from the peer pressure and end up discovering their love for the stage … and maybe even for each other.
Children and youth entering grades kindergarten ranging all the way up to the senior level in high school may register for the summer camp. The campers meet 4 hours a day, 5 days a week to stage the production, gain valuable theatrical instruction, and participate in theater activities.
The camp begins July 5 and ends July 23 with two performances of “Disney’s High School Musical, Jr.” Performances will take place at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Campers will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays for rehearsals.
“Learning about acting, singing, and dancing is only a part of what children take away from the theater camp experience,” said Jay Duffer, department chair of theater at Huntington University. “Theater instills confidence and teaches children how to collaborate with each other.”
For anyone interested in registering, camp tuition costs $185 if the registration form is returned by May 10. Camp tuition increases to $210 if the registration form is returned after May 10. The registration form can be found at www.huntington.edu/theatre
