Summer Theater Camp to Present ‘The Lion King’ at the Center for Performing Arts

Reservations now in progress for kids’ theatrical summer camp

University Park, Ill.—(ENEWSPF)–April 17, 2014 – Governors State University is now taking reservations for its kids’ theatrical summer camp June 16-20, which is presented by The Emerald City Theatre School. 

The one-week camp is open to kids aged 7 to 13. At the end of camp, the cast will present a performance of “The Lion King.”

During the camp, kids will learn how to create characters, create scenes and memorize lines. They will learn games that spark imagination, work on costumes, experience choreography and develop teamwork skills, all while building friendships.

The camp is open to children regardless of theatrical skill levels. No experience is necessary in order to enroll. The camp meets from 9 a.m.—3 p.m. every day during the week it’s scheduled. The performance will be June 20 at 7 p.m. at the Center for Performing Arts.

“Summer Theatre Camp propelled my daughter’s creativity and self-confidence to new heights while having fun with her camp friends,” said parent Judy Ferneau about her daughter Frankie’s experience.

“My kids have attended the camp for several years and they have had fun every year. They learn what it takes to produce a stage performance but it is still tailored down to their age,” said parent Michael Horvath.

The cost for the camp is $250, which includes four tickets to the final performance. Additional tickets will be available for purchase for $10 each through the box office. This popular camp is limited to 50 campers and only a few spots remain open. Call (708) 235-2222 for more information and to enroll a child.

Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway in University Park.
