NEMPAC is expanding its Summer Program Offerings to include two exciting new week-long intensive camps, a Youth Improv Camp for ages 9-13 and Broadway Bootcamp: Hamilton to Matilda! for ages 10-15. After years of success with the popular Music Theatre Summer Workshop, a week long day camp program offered for three weeks in July in which children ages 5 – 11 have the opportunity to produce and perform in a musical production, NEMPAC has decided to broaden its teen programming to create a natural progression from our Music Theatre Workshops into these higher level camps.
“In an effort to engage our older students that have worked their way through our programming, NEMPAC will be introducing new music theatre styles that are taking the world by storm! We hope our new programming will inspire fresh ideas and a new found love of the arts.” – Manda Shepherd, Educational Programs Director
Youth Improv Camp, offered from June 26th – June 30th, will be a continuation of NEMPAC’s new partnership with the Improv Asylum, featuring staff from both organizations as camp instructors and the Improv Asylum itself as the camp location. Students will focus on basic improv and theater games with an emphasis on creativity and collaboration, culminating in a final performance on Friday, June 30th.
Broadway Bootcamp: Hamilton to Matilda! is designed for youth singers, actors, and dancers who are inspired to explore their creativeness and further develop their performance skills in a week long intensive setting. The program, geared toward contemporary hip-hop, rock, and pop musicals, will allow students to rehearse and perform scenes from shows such as Hamilton, Legally Blonde, and School of Rock. It will be offered from July 24th – 28th.
