MAJOR CLASS — THEATRE

The Theatre major is offered both Session 1 & Session 2

Theatre classes require that you have a serious interest and aptitude for the selected subject and preferably be enrolled in a theater program, either in or outside school. If an instructor’s recommendation is not possible, please attach a theater resume or brief description of your experience in theatre.

Students will be encouraged to challenge themselves and tap into their personal best on stage and off as they work towards the goals of the ensemble. 

Auditions
A monologue will be required. You must be prepared to audition the day you arrive at camp. At least two weeks before camp, choose and memorize a monologue, approximately one minute in length, which demonstrates your level of ability. No original material may be included in your audition. A monologue is usually defined as one character’s thoughts or lines with a conflict. Do not choose a poem, song lyrics, scene from a movie, or phone conversation. You can find a good monologue from one of your favorite plays. You may be asked to sing and/or dance. Important: Theatre students who do not arrive prepared to audition may be sent home.

Students will identify the category that best describes their theatre experience.
