Rehearse and perform a play based on your favorite myths in this two week summer camp for the budding actor. Complete with acting classes, a mini performance tour, and weekly camp-outs, Mythology Ensemble is the perfect introduction to TPE!
For current 4th – 6th graders
- Camp Session: July 29 – August 9
Rehearse and perform a play based on your favorite myths! The Mythology Ensemble nourishes the creativity of young artists, combining theatre games and group storytelling with acting techniques that help the young actors really dive into their roles. Campers tell some of the world’s most beautiful and powerful stories with music, words, and movement.
The Mythology Ensembles will perform Pandora’s Fire and Perseus & the Rock Star, a pair of plays based on Greek mythology by Judy White. Daring heroes and plucky heroines must battle temptation, fear, vengeful gods, and poisonous monsters as they strive to understand the world and themselves.
Every day is a mix of rehearsal, games, classes, and fun! Then, we pitch tents and roast marshmallows every Thursday night for our weekly overnight.
At the end of your second week of camp, you’ll perform your masterpiece for the public. On Thursday, you’ll perform for the kids in another camp at a nearby community center, and on Friday you’ll have your grand finale as part of a festival for family and friends!
Traveling Players summer camps and classes always offer expert training in acting, character creation, physical comedy, stage combat, improvisation, and text analysis. A typical day at camp isn’t just about rehearsal! Our talented faculty teach daily classes in subjects that help round out the campers as actors and as students.
We also value the spirit of the ensemble. Our ensemble- and team-building adventures create a strong, supportive cast and friendships that will last a lifetime. We teach leave no trace camping, go on ropes courses, and camp out every Thursday night.
