Children’s summer theater

Published: Tuesday, May 27, 2014 10:06 a.m. CST

Registration is open for Children’s Community Theatre’s summer Imagination Camps.

The theme for this year’s Beginner’s Imagination Camp is “Circus, Circus!” The camp is open to children entering grades 1 through 6 in the fall. Children will be divided into groups by age and will spend two weeks learning songs, dances and skits that will be performed for family and friends at the conclusion of camp.

Beginner’s Imagination Camp will be offered on weekdays, from 9 a.m. to noon, June 9 through 20, with sessions hosted at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, 26555 Brickville Road, in Sycamore. The final showcase will be presented at 7 p.m. June 20 in the auditorium of Sycamore High School. Cost for the two-week camp is $115 per student.

Students enrolled in Advanced Camp (which is open to students entering seventh grade in the fall through spring 2014 high school graduates) will get the experience of auditioning for, rehearsing and presenting a full-length version of the Broadway musical “Footloose,” all within a span of less than two weeks.

The camp is in session afternoons, June 16 through 29. Most rehearsals will be held at St. John Lutheran Church in Sycamore, with shows at Sycamore High School June 27 through 29. While preparing the show, advanced campers will receive instruction in various theater disciplines including singing, dancing, acting, voice projection, costuming and more. The two-week camp costs $140 per student.

Complete details for both camps (including a detailed rehearsal schedule for Advanced Camp), along with an online registration form can be found online at www.CCTOnstage.com.
