GRANTS PASS, Ore.– Barnstormers Theatre announces its summer youth theatre camp, “A Mid-Summer Camp’s Dream.” The camp is a 4-week program, running from July 5 – 31. Campers ages 9-16 will work on a youth production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” while also learning performance and technical theatre techniques.

Madeline DeCourcey returns as the camp director, a role she has served for many years. DeCourcey has directed, stage managed and performed in numerous shows for Barnstormers, including multiple plays involving children, such as “Revenge of the Space Pandas,” “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” and “The Pony Expresso.”

Joining DeCourcey as a co-instructor for summer camp is the Grants Pass High School Theatre teacher, Justin Hauke. Guest instructor Brianna Gowland will join camp for two weeks to teach movement and choreography classes. Camp will also include workshops alongside the adult cast of Barnstormers’ summer production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

While receiving in-depth training in acting and performance techniques, campers will also receive training in the technical elements of theatre, such as lighting, sound design, costuming and make-up design. Campers will work together to design and create their own props and set decorations for their production. Parents will witness first-hand the all-inclusive training that their children receive during the final performance, which will take place July 30 – 31.

“We are so excited to be offering our first full-length production camp for Barnstormers’ campers,” said Madeline DeCourcey.

Registration is now open; the cost for the 4-week program is $600. Tuition can be paid in full with registration, or a deposit of $100 can be paid to hold your child’s spot in camp. The remainder of tuition is due prior to or on the first day of camp.

Camp is limited to 20 students; early registration is highly recommended. Limited scholarships are available, please email barnstormersgp@gmail.com to request a scholarship application. An advanced student questionnaire is also available for younger students who are interested in participating in camp who demonstrate prior experience and/or ability.

“After being stuck at home with their kids for so long, we hope that parents will be ready to get their kids back out into safe, social environments that stimulate their creativity,” DeCourcey said.

COVID-19 guidelines will be adhered to: campers will need to wear face coverings throughout camp, temperatures will be taken and screening questions will be asked during check-in at each day of camp. Campers will need to provide their own lunch, snack and refillable water bottle.

For further information, please call (541) 479-3557 or email barnstormersgp@gmail.com.
