‘LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!’ IS THEME FOR WEEKLONG THEATER CAMPAT SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY

           SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Budding actors, directors, playwrights and designers will have the chance to hone their talents when Slippery Rock University offers “Lights, Camera, Action!” a weeklong summer camp for children ages 7 to 14 this summer.

          “The Play’s The Thing: An Introduction to the Magic of the Theater!” is set for July 7-11 and will offer mini-courses in acting, set and light design, stage movement, dance and combat, and will include a backstage visit to a Pittsburgh theater. The week culminates with a public performance by the students showing off their newly learned talents.

          “This is an outstanding program for children interested in acting and other activities involving theater. It is also a good way to help children build self-awareness and self-esteem,” says Richard Comings, head of SRU’s Office of Continuing Education, which created the weeklong day camp. “Our award-winning theater faculty teach many of the classes exposing students to just about every phase of theater production.”

           Sessions will cover such topics as rehearsal techniques, history of fashion, costume design, make-up design, tool safety, basic set construction, dance techniques, hanging lights and teamwork, among others.

           Tuition for the weeklong camp is $200 ($190 for those registering by June 23; $185 for those registering early with multiple children from the same family). The camp includes a supervised lunch. The registration deadline is June 30.

            Details are available by calling 724-738-2633 or by visiting the university’s Web site: www.SRU.edu
