School’s out for the summer…now what is there for your kids to do? The art, communications and theatre (ACT) department at Texas A&M University-Kingsville has a suggestion--why not try Drama Camp?

The ACT department will host Drama Camp from Monday, June 9 through Friday, June 13. Classes are held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but campers may sign up for either the full- or part-time schedule. Students will be divided into three age groups: Javelina-grades three through five; Blue-grades six through eight; and Gold-grades nine through 12.

The deadline to enroll in drama camp is Friday, June 6. The cost for a full day is $110. A half-day will cost $90. There also is a registration fee of $10 for everyone. The registration fee will be waived if registered by Friday, May 30. Half the cost must be paid when registering and the remainder must be paid the first day of classes.

All classes are taught by a staff of professional student artists with a bachelor’s degree in theatre and performance and a long list of performances and stage credits. Classes will be held on campus in the Speech and Drama Building, as well as on the stages of the Little Theatre, Jones Auditorium and the Black-Box Theatre (Drama Lab Theatre).

The daily camp schedule includes: 

9 to 9:55 a.m.—Acting

10 to 10:55 a.m.—Musical Theatre

11 to 11:55 a.m.—Movement

Noon to 12:55 p.m.—Lunch

1 to 1:55 p.m.—Performance

2 to 5 p.m.—Rehearsal

Half-day campers will be dismissed at 1:55 p.m. Full-day campers will continue to regular rehearsals for a performance that will be presented the evening of Friday, June 13.
