The Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater in downtown Lumberton will hold its “Summer Theater Boot Camp” July 17-22. The six-day artistic intensive program, ending with a culminating revue for friends and family, will allow campers ages 8 to 16 to develop essential acting skills, participate in theater games and exercises, create and act out scenes through improvisation, dance/movement, music instruction, and audition prep/headshots, among other skills.

Along with professionally trained camp instructors, campers will be under the supervision and artistry of the camp director and theater resident artist, Kendrix Singletary, who brings national theater experience to the Civic Center’s stage.

The camp will culminate with a Saturday July 22 revue performed for friends and family.

Cost for the camp is $150 per participant. Scholarships are available and provided by a grant through Kiwanis Club of Robeson.

Sibling discounts are available and detailed on the application. Each camper must have a separate application on file. The camp capacity is limited.
