AJack and the Amazing Beanstalk@ Theatre Camp Set for Tyrone Recreation

Once again, Fayette County based Offshoot Productions is partnering with the Tyrone Recreation Department to offer a unique summer camp. From Monday, July 28, through Friday, August 1, young actors aged 7 to 15 may participate in AJack and the Amazing Beanstalk@ at the Roger Spencer Community Center, 145 Commerce Drive in Tyrone.

While creating a magical tale that includes offbeat characters, a fast-paced plot, music and stylized movement, the participants will learn acting techniques for developing an ensemble performance. Part of the time campers work in small groups according to age, and part of the time everyone works together to mold the show.

The camp, which is suitable both for those with theatre experience and for newcomers to the stage, meets from 1:00 to 4:15 p.m. daily, with a presentation for invited guests on Friday. The cost is $98.

Instructors for the camp include Susan M. Steadman, Ph.D., Offshoot ‘s producing artistic director since 1993, and Paige Steadman, Offshoot’s musical director and a member of the Gallery Players improvisation troupe.
