A Journey At The Theatre

Kids aged 8-13 will encounter the spellbinding world of storytelling during this five-day summer camp at The Theatre!

Theatre & Storytelling will ignite imaginations and engage each child's unique ability to create and share stories with others. Children will explore storytelling in the performing arts with a hands-on approach of improvisation activities, group brainstorms, and guided character discovery.

Theatre professionals will encourage each child to explore their own unique creative process while exploring the rich history of culturally diverse storytelling modalities with activities designed to nurture each child's unique creative journey and interests.

Through the art of storytelling, children will harness new abilities both on and off the stage, while learning to practically apply the principles of theatre to incorporate lighting, sound, set, and costumes in the ultimate pursuit of creative self-expression.

Theatre & Storytelling will culminate in an optional performance at Calgary's newest black box theatre, located in the beltline.

I like the ephemeral thing about theatre, every performance is like a ghost: it's there and then it's gone.
