Children and teens have been singing and dancing at The Media Theatre each summer for more than a decade as participants in Camp Media Theatre. The camp first opened in June of 2001 with only 30 members. It’s grown into one of Delaware County’s most popular summer camps with registration of over 250 youth each summer who enjoy learning more about theatre while having a good time with others who share a similar interest. It is part of the educational component of Media Music Theatre Company’s mission.
The 2019 Camp Media Theatre was a huge success, with almost 300 campers taking part in our five two-week sessions during the day and our Teen Camp Performance Camp.
$575 for each two-week daytime session — We have added a sixth two-week session: “Matilda Camp” August 24 to Sept. 4
Each two-week day camp meets Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm, and is perfect for ages 5 and up. Two separate age groups daily. Doors open at 8:30am each day. With professional instructors, educators, directors, and management. Campers perform their own scenes with the guidance of the directors, sing Broadway songs, and perform for family and friends the final Friday of each camp session at 5:00pm.
The focus is on learning and maintaining basic stage skills in singing, acting, and dance. The pleasant and focused staff is: Ben Kapilow, Music Director; Roger Ricker, Camp Manager, plus educators and counselors. The theatre’s Artistic Director Jesse Cline created Camp Media Theatre and continues to have a hand in its development.
All camps and classes at The Media Theatre are structured with the Sanford Meisner Technique which is based on the criteria that “Acting is living as truthfully as one can under an imaginary circumstance”. This allows any age of actor to be who they are, with no pretending or pretense. Actors are instructed to follow their own instinct and to not imitate or ‘copy’ anyone else’s performance, while following direction and enjoying being a part of the production or scene.
