Do you like playing pretend, being creative, and having fun? Do you dream of being on stage? Do you love to act, sing, and dance, or want to learn how? Do you want the fun of being part of a professional performance, on stage with lights, costumes, and sets? Are you between the ages of 4-15? Then GAAR’s Musical Theater Training Camp, The Sleeping Beauty, directed by GAAR's own Lily McAteer, is for you!
For three weeks this summer, experience the fun of putting on a complete musical, The Sleeping Beauty, from start to finish, from casting to rehearsals to performance! Sing and dance your way to a magical kingdom, fight dragons in the Enchanted Forest, and discover if true love really does conquer all!
Camp dates are June 27th - July 15th, culminating in an OPENING performance on July 16th, in front of a real audience! Young Artists are encouraged and invited to continue performances on July 23rd, 30th, and August 6th.
