SWFL premiere Summer Camp show announced at The Laboratory Theater of Florida June 27th – July 15th
FORT MYERS, FL (March 21, 2022) – The Laboratory Theater of Florida’s award-winning education department will be holding a Summer Camp from June 27th – July 15th for students aged 11 – 17.
The students will create and produce the creepily delightful mystery Trap by Stephen Gregg, with three performances July 15th – 16th.
The Laboratory Theater of Florida takes a “whole actor” approach to acting. In addition to physical theater, stage combat, voice modulation, blocking, stagecraft, and scene study, students also learn the basics of set design, lighting elements, lighting design, costuming, stage makeup, stage management, and theater etiquette and best practices. And, of course, theater games.
The camp culminates in a professional production of Trap by Stephen Gregg, which plays for three performances the weekend of July 15th. Speaking and backstage roles are available for all abilities, genders, and ethnicities within the camp age range.
The theater follows both the CDC and the School District of Lee County guidelines regarding the pandemic. This camp is limited to 16 students, ages 11-17, which guarantees an abundance of one-on-one instruction and allows us to keep the students as safe as possible. The theater will consider actors outside this age range on a case-by-case basis and readiness assessment.
Each day will offer a different intensive lesson. This is a hands-on, interactive camp with theater professionals; a completely immersive experience that has proven to be both successful and enjoyable by previous campers. Summer Camp runs from 9 am – 4 pm each day (with a 30-minute window from 8:30 am – 9 am and from 4 pm – 4:30 pm) and is $450 for the entire theatrical experience. Scholarships and sibling discounts are available.
Registration is required. For registration forms or scholarship applications, please call The Laboratory Theater of Florida’s Education Department at 239-841-4250 or register online at www.laboratorytheaterflorida.com.
This camp is sponsored in part by a grant from The School District of Lee County.
