The camp will be held 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. July 20 – 24 at the Tinnin Fine Arts Center on the Three Rivers College Poplar Bluff campus. The students will have a final performance at 11 a.m. on July 24 at the Tinnin Fine Arts Center.
The camp will cover theater essentials including improvisation, readers theater, theater games, and musical theater. Students will be performing the musical number, “We’re All in This Together” from “High School Musical.”
JoNell Seifert, retired theater instructor for Poplar Bluff High School, will be the camp director. Josh Hancock, an English and theater teacher at Twin Rivers High School, will be the camp’s assistant director. Mary Libla, director of the Ben and Martha Bidewell Fitness Center, will be the choreographer for the musical number.
“Students will learn about theater and collaborating with others all while having fun,” said Seifert. The camp also promotes self-confidence and a love for theater. “There’s nothing like live theater. I hope we instill a love for performance and get kids hooked on theater!”
