UW-Stevens Point Continuing Ed offers virtual youth camps
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – UW-Stevens Point Continuing Education has moved several of its camps online to keep youth and adults engaged from home.
Youth, ages eight to 16, may participate in “The Show Must Go Online,” May 26 – June 12 or June 15 – July 2. “The Show Must Go Online” is a musical written to be rehearsed and performed remotely. Each actor will receive a scene/song to rehearse, record, and upload. When all the videos are played in order, they tell the hilarious story of a group of passionate students desperate to keep their annual musical alive online.
Led by Theatre Director Brad Schmicker, this three-week camp consists of a minimum of two virtual class sessions per week focusing on theatrical skills, drama games, enhancing the actors’ performances, props, costumes, and show details.
UW-Stevens Point will also offer Point Makers Camp online June 8-13 for high school students and adults.
Explore multiple ways of creating, including, drawing, storytelling, printmaking, and designing symbols and patterns. Channel your individuality into original works of visual art and design. At the conclusion of camp, the original artwork will be displayed in a virtual online gallery. Registration deadline is June 5.
