WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, FALL 2017
Classes and performance opportunities for all ages and experience levels.
FROM CASTING TO CURTAIN CALL
Spend an exciting fall at the Clifton Performance Theatre where specialists in acting, singing and dance will lead campers through the process of putting on a real show! Together we’ll prepare a fantastic performance, sometimes even designing costumes and helping to build sets. No experience necessary and no auditions needed to join. All that is required is curiosity and the desire to have fun in a creative, non-competitive environment. After each week of working together, campers will perform a classic-style musical for their family, friends, and the Clifton community. Many scripts are all-original or newly adapted to allow young actors with a wide range of skills and experiences to enjoy more stage time.
