Summer Camp FAQs


Below are some commonly asked questions about our summer program. If you have a question that isn’t listed, have a specific concern, or would like more information feel free to contact Emily Norman at 720.639.2117 or email her here. No question is too small.

Who are the instructors?

Camp is led by our Director of Education Emily Norman and Teaching Artist Sarah Bassinger. With a maximum number of 15 campers, there would be a 1:7 teacher/student ratio. 

What should the actors bring to camp?

Actors should bring a lunch, two snacks, and a full water bottle.

What should the actors wear to camp?

There will be a good deal of movement during camp, so we encourage the actors to wear sneakers or securely fitted sandals. In addition if actors choose to wear a skirt or dress, we ask that they wear shorts underneath.

Where does camp take place?

We rehearse and perform at Mountain View United Methodist Church in South Boulder. Our rehearsals take place in room 111/113 and our workshops are presented on the stage in Barker Hall. Weather permitting, we’ll have lunch outdoors and get some energy out on the playground.

Will the actors wear costumes?

Actors will wear clothes they already own for their base and actors will create their own costume piece that represents their character. All supplies are provided by Acting Out Theatre Company.

Will there be a set or props?

The actors will all participate in creating a backdrop. The creation of props will be dependent on the workshop the actors create.

What does a day at camp look like?

Campers will start the day with a group warm up. They will participate in a variety of classes throughout the day such as movement, acting, improvisation and playmaking. This curriculum will allow our actors to make creative choices with their bodies and voices, explore spatial awareness and establish a collaborative ensemble. The group will then create a brand new piece of theatre using the world of Harry Potter as the starting point. Let the imaginative fun begin!
