Great Big Theatre Company's innovative online Summer Drama Camps offer a variety of fun, engaging and interactive activities for youth ages 6-14 years. GBTC brings many years of experience with drama for kids to the development of this virtual program in the Zoom environment.
A camp week consists of two 75-minute participatory sessions -- one in the morning and one in the afternoon -- on each day, Monday to Friday. Our trained and experienced coaches will share movement games, storytelling, play writing, music, poems and fun raps. Campers will also create online visual art projects related to their dramatic scenes. The camp will be an energized experience, allowing campers to interact and make friends online. During our 'break-out room' periods, campers will meet in small groups to create their own dramatic improvisations and engage in theatre games; they will then be able to share their work with the larger camp group. At the end of the week, they will be able to share with parents and friends.
Character Development: This program helps build the following traits
Interpersonal skills: Drama enhances verbal and nonverbal expression of ideas. It improves voice projection, articulation of words, fluency with language, and persuasive speech. Listening and observation skills develop by playing drama games, being an audience, rehearsing, and performing.
Creativity: Making creative choices, thinking of new ideas, and interpreting familiar material in new ways are essential to drama. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
