All campers will have a part in the show which will be on our Mainstage, two ticketed evening performances, their pic & bio in the program and a camp t-shirt! Campers will not only learn how to perform in this show but will also be trained along the way with the skills needed to be in any production. The best part is that this all builds self-confidence, skills and grows new friendships at the same time.

Learn the magical form of on-camera acting in this popular class for commercials, TV and film. Students perform actual scripts, are filmed, then watch the results with constructive direction during every class.

The class will focus on the difference between stage and film acting, the 3 forms of on-camera auditioning, understanding the “business”, how to handle nerves, script break down, memorization techniques, how to hold a script, body language, how to “be yourself”, how to practice at home, how to improve your audition to beat the competition, what to do when you get cast and what to expect on a set.

Each student’s confidence will grow as they learn how to adjust their performance for the camera, better understand the business and how to get an agent in Arizona! Students will share what they learned the last day of class, and instructions given to parents on how to help their child get an agent. This is the only place in town to get this kind of training & experience.
