Musical Theatre Camp: July 7-12, 2019
Rising 9th – 12th Grade
Musical Theatre Camp at Auburn University is an innovative, intensive week-long residential workshop designed for music, theatre, dance, and show choir students who are interested in developing their skills on stage. Students will participate in workshops, masterclasses, private lessons, and rehearsals with our skilled Department of Theatre faculty and staff. Camp kicks off Sunday night with mock auditions and a fun filled night of pizza and games! The week culminates in a Friday morning performance that will highlight scenes rehearsed during the week for family and friends!
Sunday night, campers will participate in a mock audition. Campers will need to prepare and bring sheet music with them to camp.
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
Auburn University Theatre provides undergraduate theatre training and performances in the award-winning Telfair B. Peet Theatre. Ensembles include the Radio Flyer Theatre Company, which features productions in the style of the Golden Age of Radio, and the Mosaic Theatre Company, which creates and performs original works of theatre around issues of diversity.
Jeri Dickey's teaching credits include The Dayton Ballet, Pontecorvo Ballet Studios, The Jon Rodriguez School for Ballet, Wright State University, The Human Race Theatre, and her own award winning Progressive Dance Theatre.
Her students have gone on to dance with the School of American Ballet in New York City, in various musical theater productions on Broadway, and in professional teaching and performing careers with nationally acclaimed classical ballet and modern companies.
