As an intern, he was heavily involved in several aspects of the youth theater camp. He is excited to be instructing this group and is eager to see the talents of these amazing students!

Week 1
Title- War of the Whiskers
In a parody of H.G. Well’s classic radio drama War of the Worlds, a radio station is given news of a new, fuzzy threat to civilian safety. Students will put together a production using voice over, puppetry, and standard stage acting, learning to blend these media to creative exciting live theatre!

Week 2
Title- Without A Kingdom
Join Alfred, a powerful king, ruler of many loyal subjects. The only problem- he can’t quite remember where they are… Students will experiment with heavy characterization by portraying multiple roles in the show. They will learn how to create unique, varied personas and how to easily distinguish one role from the next.

Week 3

Find evil alongside these average-powered individuals! They’re not the most super, but they’re heroes nonetheless. Students will learn about comedic timing and the process of putting together a parody comedy.
