RiverPark Center’s Theatre Arts Academy is back with “BOO” — a spooky-themed theatre camp that will run Monday through Friday. The camp will give children ages 6 to 18 the chance to craft their own production with trained teaching artists.
Students between 6 and 11 years of age will be able to write their own scary — or not so scary — monologues and scenes, while students who fall between 12 and 18 years old will have the opportunity to write their own mini-musical performance at the final production.
Students of all ages will create props and costumes from their own handmade designs to assist in the final production.
“Come reimagine famous spooky stories, bring creepy crawlers to life and conjure up musical skeletons,” said RPC Director of Marketing and Education Grae Greer.
With many local camps being cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Greer said RPC knew they needed to jump on the opportunity to provide something for the community during Fall Break.
“We have an amazing group of educators who will provide an engaging, educational experience for many kids who will be in Owensboro during Fall Break,” Greer added.
Educators involved in the camp include Greer, who will serve as the acting teacher artist, along with Musical Theatre Teaching Artist Calvin Malone, Choreographer Steffan Clark and Make-up Teaching Artist Alexis Riley.
The camp will run 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day. Tickets are $75 per student. Those hoping to purchase tickets can contact Greer at email@example.com to sign up or call the RPC box office at 270-687-2770.
