High school students and recent graduates interested in music and theater are being offered the opportunity to join University of Maine at Fort Kent faculty in this year's musical theater camp.
The program will take place from July 12 to 23 and students will participate in workshops and classes in acting, music and stagecraft, culminating in an afternoon of performances.
"The camp will allow students to explore their interests in the performing arts, have fun and learn more about our campus," said Scott Brickman, associate professor of music at UMFK.
Brickman will be instructing the camp, along with Charles "Chuck" Closser, professor of oral communication and performing arts, and Joe Zubrick, associate professor of theater and oral communications.
Topics covered will include chorus, acting, stagecraft, music theory, and movement and hands-on participation is encouraged. Family and friends will be invited to the final performances.
The course will utilize the Fox Auditorium stage and UMFK's modern computerized music lab. The camp will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day and is limited to 20 students, so early registration is advised.
The fee is $200 which includes materials and lunches.
To register call Don Eno, in the academic outreach office at 834-7835.
