Hey Kids, Let’s put on a Show!
In a single week, participants put on a show! Soup to Nuts. Sets, costumes, rehearsals and more. Production is TBA and based on participants. Show will be chosen, cast before camp starts, and participants will be expected to be off-book on the first day.
Artistic Director Jessica Irons will meet with participants prior to the first day of camp to determine casting. There are no auditions. Everyone will be cast. Participants will spend the day in rehearsal, theater classes, arts and crafts, both indoors and outside at Bethany Arts Community. All participants must bring a nut-free lunch and snack daily. Lunches and snacks will be refrigerated.
The hours of camp are 9-3 Monday – Friday
Performance is on Friday, August 21 at 7pm. Camp and performances are at Bethany Arts Community

Welcome to Colchester, a small town where everybody knows each other and the pace of life allows the pursuit of love to take up as much space as it needs. Our tour guide is Suzanne, the town photographer, who lets us peek into her neighbors’ lives to catch glimpses of romance in all its stages of development. A play about love, nostalgia, the seasons and how we learn to say goodbye.
Theater O Presents: And a Child Shall Lead By Michael Slade
This is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the “Jewish city” established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty — playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper — all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war.
Starring: Dylan Alter, Cavan Brouder, Kenzie Dono, Henry Hoffman, Sofia Kringas, Rowan Krupp-Foshay, Khadija Mostafa, Elena Prisament, Kiran Roye
