Musical Theater Summer Camp Theme - 2010

We've chosen the theme for the final revues of our three musical theater camp sessions this summer. The theme for all three sessions will be: Broadway: Then & Now. The first half of the performance, Then, will feature Broadway shows before 1970, and the second half, Now, will feature shows since 1970.

I know, it's a very broad theme! But we feel strongly that this is a fitting theme for the first year of our camp. Plus, it means that we are free to feature you on whatever material is best for you.

We still have spots available for all three sessions, but they are filling up quickly, so make sure you call me or Stefani at (908) 464-5928 to inquire about the camp as soon as possible. I am particularly excited about the Wild Card period after lunch. I've already spoken to a Broadway casting director and a star of a currently running Broadway show about coming in to give master classes, and they are on board.

I also know a lot of you are looking to start auditioning for shows in the fall and beyond. Here at the Elefante School for the Performing Arts, we're dedicated to preparing students for auditions at all levels, including how to choose material, prepare material, prepare sheet music, dress, enter the room, present themselves, perform, and exit the room. We are going to be working on this a lot at the summer camp. But if you can't join us during the summer, maybe you'll consider joining us in the fall. Fall course selections will be at elefanteperformingarts.com shortly, so stay tuned.

Thanks for reading!
