SAULT YOUTH THEATRE
Full and partial scholarship are still available for Summer Theatre Camp 2014!
Summer Theatre Camp 2014, hosted by the Community Theatre Centre offers a safe, encouraging space where young performers may express themselves and grow in confidence, under the direction of professional artists/educators.
The camp runs in conjunction with The Sault Youth Theatre.
We are pleased to be able to offer partial and full scholarships (up to the full fee of $350) based on interest and financial need.

During camp, students ages 10 - 15 will participate in nine, exceptional days of unique theatre exploration through acting workshops including: finding the natural voice/singing, improvisation, character work, movement, script work, the speaking voice, ensemble building and scene study.
The student showcase performance will be inspired by classic short stories, comedic folk tales, and ghost stories staged using the spoken word, songs, movement and music!
We welcome young learners interested in musical and/or non-musical forms.
