Summer 2022 Programming
We have not confirmed any camps for 2022 at this stage. The Mamma Mia! production is taking up all of our volunteer and artist energy. Watch this space and our Facebook page for updates in July 2022. Last year's camps are listed below to give you a taste of what we offer annually for our summer programming.

Galapagos Project - 9+
Facilitated by Hailey Christie-Hoyle
If your children are keen for a more intensive program and a bit more of a challenge, we are offering a longer project for youth this summer. This project, called "Galapagos", requires participants to be available for various dates during August and culminates in a devised performance. Depending on COVID protocols this production will be filmed if audience are not permitted. Because this project requires children to work at a steady pace to produce a performance in a short period of time, we are interested in recruiting children who have already been in productions or camps with us.
3rd, 4th, 5th August, 4-6pm
9th - 13th August, 9am - 3pm
23rd - 28th August, 9am - 3pm (with longer hours on performance days)
Ages 9 and up
$300 (scholarships are available, so please contact us)
Premise of the Galapagos Project:
The flood is coming. The animals have built an ark. They can only choose two humans to join them. Who will they choose? Youth will collaborate to create and perform a devised theatre performance surrounding this story prompt, exploring their connection to the global climate change emergency. This project is part of a larger global project with the David Glass Ensemble, where youth in 13 other countries will also create a theatre piece on this same topic. Youth will have the opportunity (either during our camp or before /after) to connect digitally with other youth performers in the other participating countries to hear about their devised performance process.
