The Show Must Go Online!

May 26-June 12 OR June 15-July 2, 2020


"The Show Must Go Online” is a musical written to be rehearsed and performed remotely! Each actor will receive a 1-2 minute scene/song to rehearse, video record, and upload. When all the videos are played in order, they tell the hilarious story of a group of passionate students desperate to keep their annual musical alive…online!

This three-week camp is comprised of a minimum of two virtual class sessions per week. One large-group session will focus on basics of acting, drama games, etc.  Small-group sessions will focus on enhancing the actors’ performances, show details, etc.
