Corvallis Camps 2017!
CSD Theaters and Corvallis High School are pleased to present their tenth annual STAGES Theater Camp for kids entering grades 1st – 12th. The positive and fun training will provide education in theater skills while raising the student’s appreciation of the arts.
Summer Theater Camps
We provide a platform to enable students to explore and express their creativity and imagination while encouraging them to delight in the theater process and the end-product.
Past classes have include training in dance, stage movement, basic stage combat, lighting and color on stage, pantomime, stage acting, acting on camera, projection and voice work, music performance, the science of theater, stagecraft, play-writing, clowning, devised works and more.
The exciting two week camp will culminate in a student showcase of techniques and projects worked on during camp. Unlike traditional theater camps, STAGES is a skills-based camp and not a recital-based camp.
Students work on marketable skills necessary for careers in the theater industry.
Summer Camp Audition Information
There is ONE ‘conservatory’ group for upper division students (Shooting Stars).
There is no lower division conservatory. Entry into the Shooting Stars will be by audition. Shooting Stars must be incoming 6th- 12th grade. Curriculum at the Conservatory level will be more advanced and will require more from the students in terms of memorization, character development, movement and voice.
Interested students should fill out a Conservatory Application and then prepare a 1-2 minute monologue. Students may choose a monologue of their own or they may choose one from the attached monologue list.
This is a two week camp. Registration for campers wishing to enroll in only ONE WEEK, must be done by Clicking on the “Enroll by Check” button or by calling the admin office at 541-750-7990 and registering by phone.
Cost for 1 week:
Lower Division $135 Early Bird, $150 Late Bird (after May 1st).
Upper Division 1 week: $155 Early Bird, $170 Late Bird (After May 1st).
If you then need to pay by credit card, you will need to speak to a live person and complete the transaction over the phone: 541-750-7990
Because of the overwhelming response, Scholarship applications will not be available after May 1st. Apologies for the inconvenience.
