Within the MSB Center's stolid stone walls, the Drama Learning Center's master thespians nurture the acting, singing, and jazz-handsing chops of the next generation. Students attending the daily classes are imbued with the hidden techniques of stagecraft, including improvisation, pantomime, choreography, and breaking legs for luck.
The available camps range from tried-and-true productions like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Into the Woods Junior (a condensed version of the Sondheim classic for youth performers) to breezy modern innovations such as a Glee-themed camp and a week of wizardry in the Harry Potter's Adventures camp. Dawning dramaturges may frolic among faux fish in Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, or participate in numerous other classic tales with the shorter Animated Adventures class. In Grease, young T-Birds and Pink Ladies rush up and down the octaves like an overly oiled tin man. With enrollment, participants receive two complimentary tickets to camp-ending final productions; additional tickets may be available to purchase.
