Playwrights Theatre’s Creative Arts Academy summer camp for kids and summer theatre program for teens will begin on June 25, 2012 and run all summer long in two-week sessions through August 31, 2012. For more information and to register, visit www.ptnj.org or call 973-514-1787 X21.
Our classes are taught by trained professional theatre educators who have years of experience as working actors, writers and directors. Since new skills are presented each session, the classes are designed to be taken multiple times. At the end of each two week period, there is a “sharing” of class work for family and friends.
The Full-Day Theatre Academy (Monday through Friday, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm) is designed for grades 4-6 and 7-9. The cost is $595 per two-week session. Students work with a team of artists and alternate daily through classes in acting, musical performance, playwriting and play production. Students explore each skill and learn how to weave the various elements together into an engaging, original performance piece presented to family and friends. Full-Day sessions are available for Session B (July 9-July 20) and Session C (July 23-August 3). Each session concludes with a presentation for family and friends.
The Half-Day Summer Camp for kids and the Half-Day Summer Theatre Program for teens (Monday-Friday, 9:30am-12:30pm) is an opportunity for students at all levels of experience to discover new facets of creativity while developing their theatrical skills. Tuition is $275 per two-week session, $250 for returning students with the exception of the Creative Play class, which is $225. Classes include: Playmakers (grades 1-3), Acting Lab (grades 4-6), Musical Performance (grades 4-8), Acting Workshop (grades 7-9), Playwriting Workshop (grades 6-12) and the Creative Play class (ages 4 & 5) which meets (Monday through Friday, 9:30 – 11:30am). Each session concludes with a presentation for family and friends and is designed to have a slightly different emphasis so students can take the same class several times and still have a high-quality learning experience.
