Cortland Repertory Theatre's "CRT Kids" program is now accepting applications to the "Showstoppers and Superstars" day-camp for children interested in the theatrical arts. No experience is necessary - just an interest in theatre is required!
This musical theatre adventure camp will be held at the Homer Center for the Arts, 72 South Main Street in Homer, and is offered in two separate weeks: July 23 – 28 and July 30 – August 4. Students may sign up for one or both weeks for a nominal weekly fee. Each day will have two sessions: "Showstoppers", for students in K - 2nd grade, will meet from 10:00 – 1:00. "Superstars", for students in grades 3 - 5 will meet from 2:00 - 5:00. This lively and energetic day camp focuses on building self esteem, teamwork and creative problem solving through the musical theatre arts of acting, singing, and dancing. Over the week, the students will participate in the creative process of writing their own original musical which will be performed free of charge on the final day. Sessions are supervised by Tammy Holder, a New York City-based musical teacher and arts educator, a field she has worked in for 19 years. She currently is a teaching artist at TADA!, NYC's leading youth development theatre and in NYC public schools. She also has completed residencies in North Carolina, Wisconsin, New Jersey and upstate New York. Tammy is an accomplished music director, with the CRT credits of They're Playing Our Song, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, The Mikado, and last season's record-breaker Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
