Asolo Rep offers Drama Days camps during school breaks
(SARASOTA, FLA) — Asolo Repertory Theatre has announced upcoming dates for its popular Drama Days program. Drama Days offers creative camps for young artists ages 6-11 during school breaks. Upcoming camps take place during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks.
Facilitated by Asolo Rep’s Education & Engagement team, Drama Days camps invite students to spend their time out of school flexing their creative muscles and learning more about their world through theatre.
“Drama Days is a way to support our local families who are looking for cool and meaningful experiences for their children while school is out,” said Asolo Rep’s Muriel O’Neil Education & Engagement Director Sara Brunow. “I love that we can help young artists be sparked with creativity while also giving support to caregivers.”
Drama Days camps are for ages 6 to 11 and run 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Morning and aftercare are also available.
Thanksgiving Break: Nov. 21-23
Upside-down and inside-out, take known stories and shake them about. In this three-day introduction to adaptation, campers take stories they know and love, “explode” them and make them brand new again – with a theatrical twist.
Winter Break: Jan. 2-6
What do you do with an idea and a cardboard box? Create universes, worlds and stories of all sizes! In this five-day makers lab, campers grow their ideas, imagining civilizations, inventing histories and engineering environments.
Spring Break: March 13-17
Check your stats, look for traps and roll the dice. Do you love role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons? This week, campers devise and become intrepid characters, setting off on a perilous journey where fate is determined by chance, stats and imagination. Join us for a week of (mis)adventures!
Drama Days registration is available by phone at 941.351.9010 x3327 or online at asolorep.org/dramadays.
