SUMMER-Piedmont Players camps

Piedmont Players Theatre continues the first season of the Norvell Theater with expansion of its annual Summer Theater Camps.
Drama camps ó Students will work on theater techniques and acting skills through creative drama, improvisation and character development activities. They will work with props, set, costumes, and end the week with a performance for family and friends on each Friday.
Musical camps ó Join us for a week of musical excitement. Students will work on scenes and songs from famous Broadway productions and perform a reduced version of their musical for family and friends on each Friday.
Technical camp ó Students will learn all about working behind the scenes on a show. Topics will include basic shop knowledge and introductions to stage lighting, sound and set construction. Students will also design and build their own set for one of the musical camps.
