Classes

Music theater camp class

At Musical Theater Camp students will participate in dance, acting, and voice classes. Morning warm-ups will provide students with a practice routine that they can take home and implement into their own practice regime. In our intensive classes students will push their skills to the next level. Each student will receive one-on-one attention in a private voice lesson and while being coached in our daily masterclasses.

Scenes

Music theater camp performance

Musical Theater Camp is a great place for students to gain experience performing a variety of roles and styles on stage. Each student will be cast in at last four scenes that will be staged, rehearsed, and choreographed during the week. Students will participate in full-cast choruses and as soloists in more intimate scenes. These scenes will be presented to the public in our Musical Theater Revue on Saturday, June 23.

Students will audition prior to camp. Recorded auditions will be submitted with completed registrations, students will be cast in scenes and receive all music prior to camp.

Sunday Afternoon Kick ­Off

The camp will kick-off on Sunday with an afternoon of games and a pizza party. Students will show off their skills in a quick dance class and audition. Finally, students will tour the campus and those staying on campus will move into dorms.

Full camp experience

Fine tune skills in acting, voice, and dance classes. Prepare solos for daily master class with the help of coaches and private voice teachers. Under the direction of Goshen College faculty, rehearse, stage, and perform scenes from musicals. The full camp experience includes a full meal plan and 6-night stay in campus dormitories.

Commuter camp experience

Commuters will receive the full camp experience without spending their nights in the dormitories. This experience includes lunch and dinner on campus.

Choosing a camp

Both full camp and commuter camp experiences will include all of the learning, performing and fun Musical Theater Camp has to offer. Downtime is built into the very full camp schedule, however, getting a good night’s sleep and eating well is important to keep energy going during the week. Each camper is unique and we have found that some students work best when they stay engaged in the camp experience throughout the week by staying on campus, others appreciate leaving each night and returning with energy in the morning as commuters.
