Bethany Dellapolla will guide participants through different aspects of musical theatre. Attendees should prepare a portion of a song if they want to sing, or a dance if they want to dance, and will be paired up accordingly, singers and dancers. The students will then create small scenes or skits around a common theme, with guidance from the instructor, incorporating their prepared song and/or dance. Participants will be placed in breakout rooms so they can work together, independently. The camp will also explore ensemble work and theater games. All of the scenes will be filmed and edited together for a final presentation.
