Summer Drama Blast offers theatrical experience

Abbotsford's Gallery 7 Theatre is offering its drama camp program, Summer Drama Blast, this July for kids and teens aged six to 18.

The opportunity to explore all things theatrical is returning to Abbotsford this summer.

Gallery 7 Theatre is offering its drama camp program, Summer Drama Blast, this July for kids and teens aged six to 18.

“We’re super-stoked to be offering another year of fun and learning for both young children and youth,” said artistic director Ken Hildebrandt.

“Summer Drama Blast is a great opportunity for young people to explore their creative sides in a life-affirming environment while exploring important life-skills such as team-work, co-operation, self-confidence and a healthy self-image.”

Generalized performance camps allow kids to learn about basic and intermediate theatre skills, such as blocking, line memorization and characterization.

At the end, campers will give a performance for friends and family to showcase what they’ve learned.

The age-specific camps are led by trained and experienced theatre practitioners.

Youth aged 14 to 18 who are looking to enhance their high-school theatre experience, or are preparing for college and professional theatre training or deeper involvement in community theatre, will benefit from specialized theatre camps such as Performance Intensive, Improvisation, or new this year, Acting for the Camera.

The topic-specific camps offer the opportunity to explore performance at a more advanced level while rubbing shoulders with theatre professionals.

“The core idea is to help kids grow into well-rounded individuals with a healthy appreciation of how theatre can entertain and communicate. No matter what the experience or talent, kids will have a great time,” said Hildebrandt.

The camp runs from July 11-29 at the MEI School, 4081 Clearbrook Rd.

Early bird rates are available until June 30. Registration will remain open throughout the camps.
