Corvallis Camps 2018!
CSD Theaters and Corvallis High School are pleased to present their eleventh annual STAGES Theater Camp for kids entering grades 1st – 12th. The positive and fun training will provide education in theater skills while raising the student’s appreciation of the arts.
Summer Theater Camps
We provide a platform to enable students to explore and express their creativity and imagination while encouraging them to delight in the theater process and the end-product.
Past classes have include training in dance, stage movement, basic stage combat, lighting and color on stage, pantomime, stage acting, acting on camera, projection and voice work, music performance, the science of theater, stagecraft, play-writing, clowning, devised works and more.
The exciting two week camp will culminate in a student showcase of techniques and projects worked on during camp. Unlike traditional theater camps, STAGES is a skills-based camp and not a performance-based camp.
Students work on marketable skills necessary for careers in the theater industry.
Summer Camp Audition Information
There is ONE ‘conservatory’ group for upper division students (Shooting Stars).
There is no lower division conservatory. Entry into the Shooting Stars will be by audition. Shooting Stars must be incoming 6th- 12th grade. Curriculum at the Conservatory level will be more advanced and will require more from the students in terms of memorization, character development, movement and voice.
Interested students should fill out a Conservatory Application and then prepare a 1-2 minute monologue. Students may choose a monologue of their own or they may choose one from the attached monologue list. Auditions will be held the first day of camp.
This is a two week camp. Registration for campers wishing to enroll in only ONE WEEK is just fine. The weeks are separated in terms of content, so it is not an issue – just be sure to select the “one week” option when enrolling!
Cost for 1 week:
Lower Division $135 Early Bird, $150 Late Bird (after May 1st).
Upper Division 1 week: $155 Early Bird, $170 Late Bird (After May 1st).
If you then need to pay by credit card, you will need to speak to a live person and complete the transaction over the phone: 541-750-7990
