2018 KJPAS Residental Theater Camp – KJPAS 20th Anniversary Camps
For Rising 4th thru Graduating 12th Graders
June 17-June 22, 2018 (Sunday 3pm thru Friday 5:15pm)
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 20 years! You will truly be amazed at the quality of the final showcase performance after just six 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!).
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, and more!
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; as well as
She Loves Me, and Groundhog Day); Brittany Conigatti (Dance Captain for
A Bronx Tale on Broadway); Leah Wedge (Casting Associate for CGF Talent Agency in NYC), and many others. You can view the full list of guest artists by clicking on the “Broadway Masterclass Series” link on the right side bar of the main camp page.
NEW for 2018, campers will no longer have to choose between being an acting major or a musical theater major! The final showcase will still feature the singing, acting, and dancing talents of our campers, and we will cast the parts from auditions at the beginning of camp. The FREE public performance will take place on Friday, June 22 at 4:00pm at Camp Bethel's Hillside Theater.
NEW for 2018, we are essentially going to run three camps concurrently at Camp Bethel. Campers will be cast by age group so that we can offer a fun camp and theater experience for our youngest campers while at the same time challenge our older campers with exceptional theater training.
All campers receive a FREE professional NYC quality full-color headshot, resume and bio, a FREE KJPAS Camp Tee Shirt and a FREE DVD of their camp showcase performance!
KJPAS campers and faculty, as well as a male and female head counsellor/program director all reside in the air-conditioned Heritage Lodge at Camp Bethel, complete with en-suite bathrooms. KJPAS campers will enjoy delicious camp meals in a private dining room at Camp Bethel. In addition to providing top notch theatrical training, KJPAS will also organize camp activities throughout the week, including hiking, swimming, and other outdoor experiences.
Friday, dismissal is at 5:15pm following our 4pm showcase
Camp Tuition: By May 1 = $600; after May 1
