Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

p to 40 children ages 8-18 will be introduced/gain experience with theatrical tools needed to perform on stage; creative drama, improvisation, dance, acting, vocal technique, diction, ensemble work and character development. The campers will experience musicals that are inspired by rock and roll. These musicals will include: All Shook Up (based on the music of Elvis Presley), School Of Rock by Andrew Lloyd Weber (recently closed on Broadway), Jersey Boys (also recently closed) and the classic rock and roll musical Grease. The campers will experience a survey about the beginnings of rock and roll in the 1950's including the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and The Everly Brothers among others. Campers will complete an initial evaluation form to assess their knowledge of the materials being presented. Campers will complete a final written evaluation to assess their experience at camp and to assess if they feel they met their personal and group goals. This evaluation will include rating (numerical scale and verbally) the artistic, organizational, professional and personal merits of camp. Campers will be interviewed by a 3rd party evaluator.
