NCShakes Now Accepting SummerStage Theatre Camp Registrations

HIGH POINT, N.C. – NCShakes announces its SummerStage theatre camps for youth, ages 5-17. Designed for particular age groups and interest levels, each camp offers personalized coaching and specific training in acting techniques. Camps are designed to reach students of all experience levels. Young people who would like to see if they are interested in drama and performance will find SummerStage to be a safe place to explore, while more serious young performers will benefit from the guidance and instruction of skilled professionals in the theatre industry.

This year’s offerings include the popular Camp Shakespeare and Teen Theatre camps that appeal to both classical and contemporary theatre students. Jr. Theatre Camp, Kids Theatre Camp and Creative Dramatics will again round out the camp opportunities for potential young performers as young as five years old. New in SummerStage this year are Jr. Camp Shakespeare – because you are never too young to meet The Bard – and a second session of Camp Shakespeare that will focus on exploring Shakespeare through rhythm, movement and voice. Each camp ends with an evening Showcase performance for family and friends.

All camps take place at the NCShakes Spirit Center, located at 807 W. Ward Avenue in High Point. There is a 10% discount for all registrations received by May 15, and limited scholarship funding is available by application.
