Slow Theatre Presents: A Summer Improv Camp! For Kids!
For the first time ever, Slow Theatre invites youth ages 9-12 to participate in a two-week
summer theatre camp to learn skills in theatre, create social connections, and have fun with our team! As a leader in arts and culture in the North State, we are excited to bring our skills and expertise to the stage with young people seeking a creative outlet. Alongside our expert
instructor, attendees will learn all about theatre and storytelling, culminating in a performance
for an audience of family and friends.
This camp is a two-week intensive where children of all skill levels will learn improvisation,
role-play, mime, movement, storytelling, and theatre games that help build confidence and
increase self-awareness, relaxation, responsibility, creativity and imagination. By focusing on
storytelling on a variety of levels such as physical, emotional, imaginative and social, these
classes will encourage artistic insight and enhance acting skills. Whether students are interested in careers in acting or simply want to try something new, Summer Theatre Camp will offer an exciting and educational experience for all. The camp will culminate with a free public
performance in front of friends and family. We are limiting space to the first 10 to sign up, so be

We value the safety of our participants and recognize that our community is still affected by a
global pandemic. To protect the well-being of everyone, we have designed a socially distanced
curriculum and will require masks for all indoor activities throughout the course. We strongly
suggest that you strongly consider having your child vaccinated. Being on stage means building trust and performing in a tight-knit environment. The safety of everyone is of the utmost importance. All instructors are fully vaccinated and boosted.
