Altogether there are 16 ECTC program sessions ranging from one-, two- or three-week camps that will be held during the summer (May 31 to August 1). ECTC Summer Camps will be offered in three locations along the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast: Miramar Beach (ECTC performance space), Seaside (Seaside Neighborhood School) and Panama City (Gulf Coast State College). Theater camps are offered for all ages—from rising kindergarteners to rising high school seniors.
“Summer camps are the perfect time for children to expend that extra energy creatively and ECTC has a whole line up of creative ways to have fun,” says ECTC co-founder and producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher.
For the first time, ECTC will stage a full-length musical production as part of its summer educational program. Roald Dahl’s “Matilda the Musical.”
Another first is the recruitment of 10 performing arts “experts”—including theater professors and professional Broadway actors, singers and producers —who will join ECTC’s artist/teacher production team to offer a wide range of performing art lessons and workshops including vocal, song and monologue coaching; audition and acting techniques; Laban efforts, movement, dance, choreography and even stage combat.
“The Musical Theatre Intensive is our response to our students’ growing desire to be challenged in the craft of theater,” Fisher says. “This opportunity to work alongside ECTC professionals and professional guest artists is a special and unique experience.”
