CREATE is a comprehensive program of drama, music, dance and scenic design. CREATE, which stands for Creative Recreational Education for Arts, Theatre, and Expression, was created for students entering 3rd grade through entering 9th grade. For students entering 10th grade, we are introducing our CREATE Interns in Theatre (CiiT) program. CiiT’s will apprentice under the staff and work with CREATE participants. CiiT’s will also perform in the weekly showcases, material that has been specifically chosen and taught to them by the staff. CREATE operates in 2, two-week sessions at the state of the art Sharon Middle School.
Students may register for one-two week segment or both for a total of four weeks. This format will give parents/guardians the maximum flexibility to arrange for their busy summer activities without having to commit to a program for an extended period of time. Each session will feature a fully realized Musical Theatre production featuring a Broadway script. Each session will result in a public performance on Friday afternoon in the comfortable air-conditioned auditorium for parents/guardians and family members.
This program will consist of a variety of concentrations that will be offered daily. For those interested in performance, we offer classes in acting, singing, and dance. For campers who are interested in music we offer classes in Shumba Marimba, rock band/ garage band, and singing. For campers interested in design and technical elements we offer classes in set design/painting, stage tech, mask making, and lighting and sound design. New to CREATE this year, is an orchestra concentration for serious musicians. Students in the orchestra track will learn the score and play during the performances.
The past CREATE programs have been a wonderful learning experience and thoroughly enjoyed by all participants. Last years’ staff are returning and are excited about working on all new productions. We know there are many choices available for summer arts offerings but we hope that you will choose the CREATE Program!
