Theatre Arts Camp at The Lost Colony
There is a summer camp on Roanoke Island that does not involve water sports or arts and crafts. It does not have campfires with marshmallows or relay races. What is does have is theatre…live theatre for children. The camp is run by members of The Lost Colony company and is created especially for young boys and girls with an interest in the theatre. This is the fourth year for this ever expanding program for young people who wish to discover the rewards of teamwork. Performing in front of a live audience exposes the camp members to a practical learning experience that will carry over to other activities in their development.
The first two sessions were for rising first graders to age nine. The week long session ended with a production of Disney’s The Jungle Book, KIDS. The third session will start on July 16th and run through July 20th. This session if for children from ages ten to sixteen. This group will produce the musical Once On This Island, Jr. Space is still available for this session and anyone interested in joining the group should call (252) 473-4226 and speak with Lance Culpepper.
