2017 KJPAS Middle School Performing Arts
at the Beach
For Rising 6th thru
Rising 8th Graders
June 26-30, 2017 (9am-5pm Monday thru Thursday; 9am-8pm, Friday)
Through professional training in acting, singing, and dancing, each camper will learn the skills you need to know to make it in this business. Leadership includes director Kevin Jones and his talented, professional team from KJPAS. We have been running highly successful acting and musical theater day and residential camps for the past 19 years. You will truly be amazed at the quality of the final showcase performance after just five days of camp! As a bonus, professional NYC quality headshots will be taken of each camper (which are literally worth more than the price of camp itself!).
Each day includes professional theatrical training and rehearsal for the final showcase performance, as well as active and fun theater camp activities. Campers bring a snack and a sack lunch each day, and KJPAS will provide a Pizza Party Dinner on Friday prior to the final showcase performance!
Professional Theatrical Training and Workshops include: Acting for Film and Television (on-camera class); Audition Techniques (how to get cast); The Business of Acting (how to avoid scams); Improvisation and Theater Games (how to think fast on your feet); How to Survive a Dance-Call (if you are called back at an audition to dance); Vocal Projection (how to safely project your voice without damaging your vocal cords); Character Development (how to create a believable character); Theater Dance; Headshot/Resume/Bio Workshop.
KJPAS is delighted to continue our Broadway Master class series which will be led by guest Broadway performers! Last year, our campers had the opportunity to speak with Michael Fatica (Dance Captain for
Newsies on Broadway), Amy Justman (currently in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway), Milton Granger (who was the associate conductor of
Mary Poppins for six years on Broadway) and many others (you can view the full list by clicking on the “Broadway Masterclass Series” link on the right side bar of the main camp page).
KJPAS is partnering with Cypress Camping Resort, and we are delighted to offer our campers a "camp" experience in addition to their theatrical training. This will include a Pool Party afternoon at the campground!
This camp provides a professional theater experience as we stage and choreograph show-stopping production numbers and stage outstanding scenes from Broadway plays. By staging a showcase performance, we are able to feature each camper in the final performance for the public. You must choose acting or musical theater as your major course of study. You will then be cast in either acting scenes or musical theatre songs for the final showcase performance. The FREE public performance will take place on Friday, June 30 at 6:45pm in the Socastee High School Auditorium. All campers receive a FREE professional NYC quality full-color headshot, a FREE KJPAS Camp Tee Shirt and a FREE DVD of their camp showcase performance!
Camp Tuition: By May 1 = $325; after May 1 = $375
