Youth theatre camp sign-up on now

Young aspiring actors,  10 to 15 years old, are invited to register now for a nine-day theatre camp in August.

Bard in the Valley, the Langley Players and the City of Langley are joining forces again this summer to create this opportunity for Langley’s youth.

Up to 15 young people will be introduced to improv theatre techniques and games, plot development, script writing, costume designing, makeup application, set design, set construction and set decorating, stage managing, production team building and back stage cooperation.

The camp will be held at the Langley Playhouse, so the young actors will have the thrill of presenting a show on the Playhouse stage for their friends and family on the final Friday evening.

Early registration is recommended because last year’s camp was full two days after the notice was distributed and there were 16 young people left on the wait list.

The camp will be led by Loryn LeGear.

LeGear has an associates diploma for performing arts, as well as extensive drama experience and delivery of youth drama camps throughout the Fraser Valley.

Dates:

• Tuesday, Aug. 5 to Friday, Aug. 8, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

• Monday, Aug. 11 to Thursday, Aug. 14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

• Friday, Aug. 15, noon to 8 p.m.

Show time:

• Friday, Aug. 15, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. followed by a Celebration of Success

Cost:

$100 for each participant (discounted fees will be offered if required).

Location: Langley Players Drama Club, 4307 200 St., Langley

Participants must plan to attend all nine days to ensure they realize the best experience from the camp.

For more information and to register, please contact Bard in the Valley’s Youth Theatre Workshop Coordinator, Bev Pride by email at bivytsc@gmail.com. Visit bardinthevalley.com.
