Theater provides a venue for expressing life's most precious and poignant moments, such as meeting your soul mate or joining a pack of musically inclined alley cats. Set youthful sentiments to music with today's Groupon: for $99, you a get a child's enrollment to a two-week Bravo! Theater Fun Camp at Houston's Center Stage Theater in Tomball (a $215 value). This camp for beginners takes place at the Salem Community Center and runs from Monday, July 25, to Friday, August 5. Students can enroll in either the 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. session or the 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. session. Both sessions conclude with a final showcase on Friday, August 5, at 6 p.m.
Houston's Center Stage Theater's expert instructors prepare pint-sized stars for the spotlight via training camps that focus on theater fundamentals. During the two-week session, students ages 6–9 will hone their moves, melodies, and ability to feign emotions, which can come in handy when delivering convincing sales pitches and manipulating imaginary friends. Each class of 25 puts its pupils through a gauntlet of drama workshops that facilitate practice in stage and body positions, theater terminology, character development, stage movement, and musical-theater-style singing and dancing. After two weeks of intense training, the camp concludes by rewarding each graduating attendee with a T-shirt and a showcase in the 2nd Stage Theater complete with costumes, set designs, and a monologue by Shakespeare's ghost.
As lads and lasses cultivate their star power in each three-hour lesson, parents can relax in the Salem Community Center's coffee-and-snack lounge, which offers televisions, a wireless Internet connection, and a clown that makes balloon hats for adults.
