The Waldo Theater, 916 Main Street, Waldoboro, is offering a two-week drama camp for students in grades 4-8 from July 11-July 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Campers will explore the arts of acting and singing as they work together to bring original characters and stories to life. With fun games, music and simple scenes, campers will develop the tools of their performer’s body, voice, mind and imagination.
The camp will be led by The Waldo theater artist, Mia Branco, who currently leads a school theater education program in the RSU40 school district. She will be joined by Waldoboro musical artist and Midcoast Music Academy instructor Joe Cough. Together they bring many years of teaching and curriculum development experience to camp and will guide students in creating their own stories and songs. There will be an end of camp performance on Friday July 22, with a second matinee performance scheduled for July 23.
In accordance with current (May) CDC guidelines, The Waldo recommends that all theater visitors wear masks. Camp staff will review the guidelines in July and share updates with families of campers.
Tuition for the two-week camp is $500. Partial scholarships are available, funded in part by The Cheney Financial Group. For registration and scholarship application forms, visit https://waldotheatre.org/pages/education or email [email protected]
