Located on a beautiful Pennsylvania mountaintop, Ballibay Camps' summer ends with a special two-week theater intensive for beginning and intermediate performers: the Camptown Theater Workshop.
This program has a very different design than the previous six weeks; campers participate in a structured theatre-intensive program which includes seminar-style classes in many aspects of theatre craft, a very focused scene workshop in which each camper will participate in several Shakespeare and musical theatre scenes (performed at the end of the two weeks). We also produce a staged readings and one-act plays with campers wanting even more theatre.
Campers also have daily elective time in which all of our major program areas are available. Major activity areas include: rock, pop, country, classical & Broadway music; ballet, modern, jazz & tap dance; video & radio; two- & three-dimensional visual arts; photography & technical theater. We also offer horseback riding, and swimming. Camp meals emphasize health, seasonality, whole local ingredients and sustainability. An on-site garden provides some produce and opportunities for camper participation.
After dinner, campers and staff gather for rehearsal of the full-camp chorus, an exciting parts of this unique and intense workshop program.
More experienced performers, and performers at any level wanting to participate in full-length plays and musicals should consider the the 3-weeks sessions at Camp Ballibay for the Fine and Performing Arts (http://www.ballibay.com). Performances in the Camptown Theater Workshop are scene-work and optional one-act-plays.
