Summer High School Music Theatre CAMP to Host Performance on June 25
CAMP Participants

After a week of singing, dancing, acting and fun, the Summer High School Music Theatre CAMP will culminate in a musical theatre Showcase Performance at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 in Muskingum University’s Caldwell Hall.

The performance is free and open to the public. There is ample parking, and the facility is handicap accessible. A “Greet the Performers” reception will follow in the lobby.

Students in grades 9-12 from 15 different schools will be featured. To prepare, the students participated in a week of musical training, including daily dance classes, private voice instruction, acting sessions with improvisation, master classes, and scene study. Evening recreational activities of square dancing, swimming, and movie musicals rounded out their week. Students will perform scenes from many different Broadway musicals.

The CAMP staff is led by CAMP Director Carol Wilcox Jones, Muskingum University artist-in-residence (ret.), and co-directors Todd Schreiber of Whiteford Schools in Michigan, Amy Leacock of Upper Arlington Schools in Ohio, Belinda Andrews-Smith of Tulane University, and Robert O. Jones, Muskingum University emeritus music professor.

Members of the large professional staff also include Richard Earley, Choreographer; Caroline Heading, Accompanist; John Warner, Voice Instructor; Deborah Brennan, CAMP counselor; Cole Coulter, CAMP counselor; Clara Warner, CAMP counselor; and Kayela Roberson, Administrative Assistant. All staff members wear multiple hats and fill various roles including scenes direction throughout the week. This year the student-to-staff ratio is 2:1, making it possible for students to receive a great deal of individual attention.

Music Theatre CAMP has been recognized and supported in part by the Ohio Arts Council, which helped fund this program to encourage educational excellence, cultural enrichment, and economic growth. Additional support is also provided by the Taylor McHenry Fund and the Adams Family Fund. The CAMP is celebrating its 15th Anniversary!
