Irondale is excited to announce its 2013 Summer Theater Camp! Camp will be a collection of one-day workshops and two-week sessions will keep students' minds engaged and their bodies moving by providing a nurturing, safe, and dynamic artistic environment. Lead by professional Irondale Artists, young actors can choose between classes that explore acting and improvisation, movement and dance, character creation, storytelling, playwriting, and even stage design. We encourage students to explore the power of creativity and develop an artistic voice. The work will be rooted in the Irondale tradition of theatre games and improvisation and will be created in the spirit of diversity and community building. All sessions conclude with a performance for family and friends.
