Northwestern College to host theatre camp

Northwestern College will host a theatre camp July 5–8 for high school students interested in a variety of theatrical roles. The camp is open to students in grades 9 through 12 and costs $250 per student. The fee covers room and board, as well as access to campus facilities.

Students will begin each day with warm-up games, followed by workshops on theatre skills such as acting, stage movement and costume design. The afternoon will provide time for improvisation and scene work. The days will close with evening activities and community time in the residence halls. Participants will eat in Northwestern’s cafeteria.

“We are excited to welcome high school students to Northwestern after the cancellation of last year’s camp due to COVID-19,” says Becky Donahue, theatre department building and office manager. “The faculty and staff are ready to work alongside students, sharing their knowledge and experience as theatre professionals.”
