In a single week participants in the Trinity Church Summer Musical Camp will put together a musical and perform it.
“The first day all of the parts are given out,” said church musical director Natasha Neufeld. The week is spent learning acting, dancing, singing and stagecraft. By Friday everyone has learned his or her parts. Dress rehearsal is on Saturday and on Sunday they perform at the Point Roberts Arts and Music Festival. “We need full participation. It isn’t a drop-in thing,” Neufeld said.
This year the camp will perform “The Rock Slinger and his Greatest Hit,” the story of David and Goliath. “It’s hilarious,” Neufeld said. “It’s full of great puns.”
The camp is open to children aged 7 to 12, but there are roles for teens and adults as well.
“We’re putting together our team of teen helpers early and spots are limited,” Neufeld said. “I’m also looking for some adults who have something to give in the musical theater arena: stagecraft, acting, dance or stage fighting. I’m hoping to give the teens a couple of afternoons of added instruction.”
The camp runs from Monday, July 27 to Sunday, August 2 and the performance is at 11 a.m. on Sunday. For more information or to register, contact Neufeld at firstname.lastname@example.org.
