Lisa Allen Danceworks heads up this camp for kids ages 5-16. Here is their press release:
St. Marys Little Theatre, Lisa Allen Dance Works, and The Friese Studio of Music have teamed up for this year’s Summer Musical Theatre Camp scheduled for June 10-14 and June 17-21.
This year’s two-week musical theatre camp is themed “Love Disney,” and will incorporate music, dance, and drama with favorite Disney characters played by camp attendees. According to Lisa Allen, owner of Lisa Allen Danceworks, every attendee will be a part of the grand showcase at the end of the two-week camp.
“The ‘Love Disney’ experience will enhance self expression and help build self confidence while the children learn to sing, dance and act,” Allen said. “Even seasoned performers will find the camp refreshing and an opportunity to polish their skills and build their resume.”
Allen went on to say that all levels of experience are welcome, even kids who have never performed in front of an audience before. Megan Friese, owner of The Friese Studio of Music, said, “Last year’s theatre camp was so successful, we decided it must be a yearly event. Parents and the public were impressed by how much we accomplished in the two week period, and many of our attendees went on to participate in subsequent performances in and out of our area.”
Barbara Ryan, Director of St. Marys Little Theatre (SMLT), said that the 2013 Musical Theatre Camp is an official program of SMLT’s outreach to encourage the youth of Camden County to get involved in performing arts.
“Research shows that young people who participate in community theatre have the opportunity to develop skills such as improved communication, critical thinking, and social skills—all key components of any self-development program,” Ryan said. “This year’s camp will empower children to express themselves physically, emotionally, and intellectually. And the most important thing is that the kids will be having fun, which is what summertime is all about.”
