In partnership with DaVinci Academy, the Y is excited to present our newest specialty camp. This camp is the perfect theatre camp for both new and experienced performers. Over 4 weeks, each child will rotate daily between four classes (Acting, Voice, Technical Theatre, and Ensemble), learning valuable lessons and tips needed in all phases of theater. Some subjects covered include audition technique, character development, improv skills, musical theatre, scenic design, and stage makeup. Along with these technical aspects, our youth will also be working on self-confidence, communication skills, and literacy. Every program concludes with a final showcase production where our young actors show off everything they have learned.

Adam Slee a high school theatre teacher at DaVinci Academy, a public charter school in downtown Ogden, UT., is the 2018 recipient of the Children's Theatre Foundation of America's Reba R. Robertson Award for an outstanding public high school drama teacher. The bi-annual honor is sponsored by the Children’s Theatre Foundation of America. Slee received a grant for his theatre program and funding for professional development during the CTFA Corey Medallion Award Luncheon, August 2, 2018, Hyatt Regency, Nicolette Mall, Minneapolis, MN, held in conjunction with the American Alliance for Theatre and Education national conference.

The theatre program’s work reflects this mission and creates community outreach projects that service disadvantaged populations through All Access Arts and its free ticket program. Mr. Slee understands the challenges faced by his disadvantaged teens. Homeless at 16, he survived and then thrived, in great part by the support of others. Having learned to value the gift of giving, today he works by giving to his students.

Fees 

Yes, $500 for a block of Theatre camp sounds intimidating. However, if you really break it down, it comes to $125 a week, for 40 HOURS of intensive theatre work, that's a cost of $3.13 an hour! Wow! With this, you get expert Theatre teachers for 6 hours a day, field trips to various Performing Arts Venues, a showcase at the end where all the hard work is brought to light on an actual production stage, along with a Family Dinner after the performance. What a value!
