Hello all! After resting for a few days following the conclusion of Beauty and the Beast, I began work on our summer program.
For those of you who don’t know, the Summer Dragons is a weeklong, overnight camp. We camp for nine days, and during that time, we memorize lines, practice blocking, and learn fight sequences for a performance at the end of the week. This year is the first time we will do a daily stage combat demonstration, leading up to a performance. The campers are responsible for all camp duties, including cooking, cleanup, and maintenance with adult supervision, along with preparing and putting together the show in five days.
As in previous camps, I write an original twisted script, which is a mash-up of various stories (i.e. books, movies, TV shows, etc.). This year, we will be performing Treasure Trek: The New Adventures of Jim Hawkins. I’ll let you figure that one out yourself. The shows will be on Friday, July 22 at 7:00pm, and Saturday, July 23 at 7:00pm. We will be performing at Thousand Trails campground in Chehalis in their family lodge. Just follow the signs.
If you’re interested in seeing more exhibitions of our students’ acting abilities and other instances of our strange senses of humor, please come! We’d love to see you there!
