Theatre Bristol announces
The Start of Adventure Summer Camp

Registration is now closed.

Theatre Bristol proudly announces its 2016 children’s summer camp The Start of Adventure, running July 11-15 at 512 State Street, Bristol, Tennessee.

Campers will explore theatre and acting skills from talented and highly respected teachers and theatre veterans in the area. “We’re really excited to be bringing our camp program back this year,” said James Altman, the camp coordinator. “We’re also very thankful to the professionals who will be teaching the campers valuable theatrical skills and knowledge.” Guided by the Theatre Bristol Youth Service Board (YSB), campers will spend the week learning acting skills, creative movement, music, costuming, makeup design, set design, props, and more.

At the end of the week, campers will perform three classic shows from Theatre Bristol’s early days. Kindergarten and first graders will participate in Peter Pan, a show performed many years through Theatre Bristol’s history; second, third, and fourth graders participate in Alice in Wonderland; and fifth and sixth graders will participate in King Arthur. As a special treat for the campers and their families, the Theatre Bristol Youth Service Board will perform a show, included at no extra cost.

The Start of Adventure is organized by the Theatre Bristol Youth Service Board, with guidance and counsel from the Theatre Bristol Board of Directors. “I see camp as a great way for the YSB to learn leadership, organization, planning, and responsibility,” said Camille Gray, the Youth Service Board president, “We have all had wonderful opportunities on and off stage, and now we get a chance to offer our experience and knowledge to the next generation of young actors. I know Cathy [Theatre Bristol’s founder] would be proud.”

Camp will run Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, with early drop-off and late pick-up times available. Theatre Bristol will provide a healthy snack in the afternoon, however campers will need to pack a lunch each day. Registration is available online. The cost per camper is $150, with a family discount of each additional child reduced to $75, as well as early drop off and late pick up options. Financial assistance applications are also available. Space is limited so register soon!
