This summer, get ready to perform! Limited space is still available for Riverside Theatre Works’ Broadway Boot Camp, Summer Chorus Workshop, and Creative Dramatics summer camps, which give kids ages 4 to 13 a chance to sing, dance, play, and appear on the theater’s main stage.
For kids ages 8 to 13, Broadway Boot Camp will present “Once Upon a Mattress” in July and “Willy Wonka Jr.” in August. The three-week long sessions involve theater games, team-building activities, singing, dancing and acting training, and intensive rehearsals, culminating in a two-night performance of a full Broadway musical.
For kids ages 4 to 7, Creative Dramatics is a half-day program filled with fun games and exercises, designed to develop musical theater skills, stage presence, confidence, and imagination. The session ends with a small showcase performance in the theater.
And for the first time, Riverside is offering students ages 8 to 13 a chance to participate in an afternoon choral workshop, in which they’ll learn vocal techniques and prepare to perform a small revue.
Camp sessions run from July 7 to 25 and from August 4 to 22. Creative Dramatics runs from 9 a.m. to noon and costs $400 per session. Broadway Boot Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and costs $700 per session. The Summer Chorus Workshop runs from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and costs $150 per session.
