Three Rivers College is hosting its 30th Annual Children’s Theater Drama Camp for students entering grades 2-8. The camp will be held 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. July 11 – 15 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 15 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 a musical number with choreography.
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 an assistant director. Nick McDaniel, a drama teacher at Poplar Bluff High School who also directed Three Rivers’ recent production of “The Odd Couple,” is also an assistant director.
“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!”
The cost of the drama camp is $75, which includes a T-shirt, scripts, notebook, daily snack and drink, and lots of fun. The entry form can be found online at trcc.edu/events.
