The Garfield Center for the Arts is hosting three children’s summer camps this year. Playmakers; the popular theatre camp, is full for this year and has a waiting list, but don’t despair! Children interested in musical theatre should register for the week-long MUSICAMP, which returns to the Garfield Center August 8-12. MUSICAMP culminates with a performance on Friday, August 12th at 7 p.m. This year’s production of “The Hundred Year Snooze” by Dave and Jean Perry will enchant audiences with a musical version of Sleeping Beauty. The show also boasts the requisite talking frog, fairy godmothers, and wizards! MUSICAMP is a great introduction to the stage for ages 8-15, and meets Monday through Friday 9:00am to 3:30 p.m. During the week all campers will participate in acting, singing, choreography and set design. MUSICAMP is an intensive musical theatre experience with age-appropriate content and expectations. The show is directed by Julie Lawrence and ably assisted by Rachel Craig and Charlice Culvert.
The all-new Summer Music Experience will debut at the Garfield Center from August 16-18. This is a new offering open to kids ages 8-16 to learn more about music. The three-day course will focus on recognizing rhythms, listening intelligently, and singing successfully! It will also include a drum circle and a guest lecturer!! All in three days and for only $30! The course will run 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for 3 days.
To register your child for either camp, please visit www.garfieldcenter.org/camps/ or by calling 410-810-2060. The cost of the one-week MUSICAMP is $180 (scholarships are available) and $30 for the three-day Summer Music Experience. The Garfield Center for the Arts is located at 210 High Street in Chestertown.
