Storytime!

“Those who tell the stories rule the world.”

 

We are pleased to announce three summer camps, taught by Destini Fleming, drama instructor at Wando High School. Destini brings a wealth of experience and trainings, as well as a passion for helping young performers find their voices and tell their stories through the magic of making theatre.

Youth Education FAQs

Does my child need any previous experience?

No! All of our youth classes are designed to welcome and challenge children of any experience level. We would love to be part of your young person’s first theatre experience.

 

What should my child wear to camp?

All of our classes are very active, so students should come dressed in clothes they can move in. For example, girls who prefer dresses may be more comfortable with shorts, tights, or leggings underneath. We strongly recommend all students wear close-toed shoes for safety. The Studio can get chilly, so a light jacket or sweater is never a bad idea!

 

Does my child need to bring anything special?

Students will need to bring bagged lunch each day, as they will not be permitted to leave the space to purchase food. Extra bottled water is always recommended, as we do not have a water fountain. Students should always bring any scripts, folders, and other materials as assigned.

 

Should I stay in the Studio during camp?

We have found that most young people feel more free to explore and experiment when their adults aren’t around, so we encourage parents to use class time for shopping, errands, reading… whatever you need! That said, if your child feels more comfortable having you in the studio during class, we have space where you are welcome to wait.
