BAYFEST YOUTH THEATRE SUMMER CAMP,

 

 

2018 SEATTLE INTENSIVE

 

 

July 26th – August 9, 2018

 

The 2018 Summer Camp Intensive will center around a production of “R & J” — based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in a high-energy modern setting with acting, movement and music.  Rehearsals and workshops in acting, movement, stage combat, physical comedy and voice are taught by professional actors, directors and choreographers and always culminate with public performances. We also schedule a number of outings and events during the program: professional theatre, siteseeing, BBQs and parties. We work and play hard and always have LOTS of fun!
 
BAYFEST challenges 14-19 year olds of every race, ethnicity and socio-economic background to build performance skills, creative thinking, self-awareness, and social responsibity.  We work very hard to make sure that all accepted students are able to participate, regardless of any family financial restrictions.  Tuition is subsidized by BAYFEST fundraising and is set as low as possible, but full and partial scholarships are available for those who need them, and we encourage anyone to apply.

The Summer, 2018 full tuition is $985 for the 14-day program, with scholarships available. Classes/Rehearsals will be held at Pathfinder School in West Seattle.  Accepted participants from out-of town will be hosted by local families, which is a great part of the experience.

 

First-round application deadline is February 10, 2018.

MORE ABOUT BAYFEST SUMMER ACTING CAMP INTENSIVES

BAYFEST youth theatre summer acting drama camp

Since 1990, the BAYFEST Summer Program has provided pre-professional-level theatre training and cultural enrichment to groups of talented young performers, aged 14 – 21, from around the United States, Great Britain, Canada, and elsewhere.  We now base our programs in Seattle, Washington, although each summer we accept some students from out of the area.

Participants have come from the widest possible range of backgrounds;  over 50% with scholarship assistance.

We have have worked long hours rehearsing and performing productions from improv to Shakespeare to musicals; we have had crazy fun together at parties and beach barbecues and baseball games. We have laughed and cried and played and learned with each other and the BAYFEST staff and teachers…

…and in many cases, BAYFESTers say that it was their best summer experience EVER!
