Summer Camp show announced at The Laboratory Theater of Florida June 26th – July 14th
FORT MYERS, FL (March 23, 2023) – The Laboratory Theater of Florida’s award-winning education department will be holding a Summer Camp from June 26th – July 14th for students aged 11 – 17.
The students will create and produce the high-octane comedy She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition by Qui Nguyen, with four performances July 13th – 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 She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition by Qui Nguyen, which plays for four performances the weekend of July 14th. Speaking and backstage roles are available for all abilities, genders, and ethnicities within the camp age range.
This camp is limited to 15 students, ages 11-17, which guarantees one-on-one instruction and allows the theater to train the students safely. 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 8:30 am – 4:30 pm each day (with a 30-minute window from 8:00 am – 8:30 am and from 4:30 pm – 5 pm) and is $525 for the entire three-week theatrical experience. Limited 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.
