We do not provide meals and snacks - they must be brought from home.
Our studio and camps are nut-free and peanut-free environments.
We do not allow campers to leave the premises unattended. They must bring lunches and snacks-they will not be escorted to the fast-food restaurants nearby.
Electronic devices will be placed on the prop table, and campers may check their devices during breaks and lunches. WiFi in the building is unreliable. Devices may not be shared between campers.
Fees are due upon registration and are required to hold your place in camp. Fees are non-refundable.
Your young actor will be able to flex their imagination while building friendships and performance skills in our day camps. Each camp is designed to allow your child to build skills at their own pace, and to have a chance to play and learn in a supportive and caring environment. Our teachers are top-notch, and are themselves active performers who are well-known to our company. When possible, we invite guest instructors to help give a bit more pizzazz to a part. These guests are working artists with teaching studios of their own, and include musicians, singers, actors, costume designers, and choreographers.
We take advantage of nearby parks to have lunch and blow off steam - occasionally we use the splash pad at City Park, and rehearse outdoors. Hats, sunscreen, water bottles, a change of clothes, and proper footwear are recommended.
All actors need an audience! Our campers will perform their show for friends and family (and maybe a few strays!) on the last Friday of each session. We celebrate their success and want you to see the fruit of their imagination come to life!
Bottle Tree Productions' Artist Educator Anne Marie Mortensen has this to say about theatre:
Participating in theatre can create life-long friendships, and it can build skills, which builds confidence. There is a place for everyone in the theatre. If you love to be on stage, if you love to write, to sew, to paint, to build, to manage, to design, to dance, to move, to sing, to play, or if what you really love is to watch and be transported - there is a place for you. Belonging to a community is a basic human need that is well-met with this artform. I see how our company has helped people, young and old, to create this community, to move together toward a mutual goal, to support each other and spin gold from straw. In theatre, through story telling, people can create something from nothing. That is magic.
