SUMMER DRAMA CAMP

Pirates Past Noon 2

In Cherry Hill’s Summer Drama Camp, children going into 2nd grade up to those starting middle school in September, can participate and learn about one of America’s largest and most influential contributions to Theater: the Musical. 

During this year's production of Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon, based on the famous book series by Mary Pope Osborne, campers will have fun while discovering the dedication, work, and thrill that go into putting on a production as they learn about every aspect of theater while making new friends. 

The camp runs from Monday, June 25 through Thursday, August 2, with all of the campers performing in the half-hour musical for their family and friends on Wednesday, August 1. In a modification from previous years, the primary focus of the camp will be in technical theater.  Additionally, we will also focus on movement and vocal performance.  Due to the limited rehearsal schedule, any campers who are absent for the entire first week of camp (6/25-6/29) or the entire last week of camp (7/30-8/2) will not be considered for speaking roles. 

A completed medical form is required before the program begins but not at the time of registration.  Please note, children in this camp will not be able to register for MF Camp Friday trips anymore.
