Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, campers will learn or improve their musical, theater, design and movement skills by participating in either a live theater production or working behind the scenes. As a result of this program, campers will gain knowledge regarding how to successfully prepare for performance auditions. Theater staff will observe daily performances and the dress rehearsal to ensure all campers have a part either onstage or behind the scenes for their final performances. Campers will fill out a survey at the beginning and end of theater camp which will include questions as to what they currently know and what they learned in the program. Theater staff will also observe and review all auditions done by the advanced groups as well as provide feedback on how to successfully audition.
