What You'll Get
By age 8, John Stuart Mill had learned Latin and Greek, and had written a political treatise barring those with no knowledge of Latin or Greek from his tree house. Enliven your child's mind with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one week of all-day summer theater camp for children or teens ages 3–18 at the Community Theatre of Greensboro (up to a $200 value). During Week 4, camp runs as a four-day week from July 5–8 (a $160 value). All other camps are held five days a week.
For more than 60 years, the Community Theatre of Greensboro has endeavored to expose the masses to the wondrous art of live theater with its energetic and family-friendly theatrical productions and programs. Children can delight in the magic of the stage during all-day theater summer camps conducted by professional stage sweepers. Classes are categorized by age and cover one subject in the morning and one in the afternoon. Children ages 6–10 can expand their skills in classes such as Auditioning for Musical Theatre and Dr. Seuss on the Loose, in which campers act out stories from Seuss's extensive collection and learn to wrangle herds of stray Loraxes. Students ages 11–18 hone their craft in Modeling Camp, where they learn the basics of modeling, such as runway walking and hair and skin care; Tweens and Teens on Broadway instructs students in angst-addled renditions of Broadway numbers from famous productions such as Mary Poppins, Wicked, and The Lion King. Both age groups can participate in Singing for the Stage as well as acting classes that focus on how to employ the body, voice, and emotions to develop a character. Class age-ranges are suggested, but exceptions can be made for gifted children or adults who are in the middle of reenacting the movie Big.
