“Will you go hunting with me tomorrow, father?” he asked. “I have learned much magic … I will turn myself into a hunting dog if you will go into the fields with me.” from “The Master of Magic,” a folk tale of the Azores
On Monday, June 9th the actors will arrive in a flurry of excitement for the first Durham Family Theatre camp of the summer. Teen interns will cut fresh fruit and help new arrivals with name tags and script folders. Bag lunches will be stored, table groups selected, goodbye said to family and hello to old friends and new. We’ll play a few “getting to know” you acting games and then DFT’S first ever “Play A Day” acting camp will really begin – Camp director and master storyteller, Jenny Justice, will tell the story of “The Master of Magic,” from the Azores. By the end of our first day of camps, the actors will have created, cast and performed their own story theatre production of this fantastical story.
And the fun will have officially begun. It’s going to be an exciting summer of acting games, rehearsals, scene painting and performances with Durham Family Theatre. DFT went from three camps last summer to five theatre camps this summer – only to have three of the five fill completely by May. We still have room for several more young actors in our “Play A Day” theatre camp 1, beginning this Monday, June 9th. And there are 5 places let in our fantastic 3-week Teen Theatre Conservatory. Join us –
Just go to our DFT Summer Theatre Camps page to register today for “Play A Day” camp 1 or the Teen Theatre Conservatory.
See you in the spotlight.
Jenny Justice, DFT artistic director
