Designed for kids ages 8 and up, the camps focus on performance, with training in acting, singing and dancing. Kids also have a chance to build and design set pieces and costumes. Days are fun and varied, with opportunities for campers to both work in an ensemble and shine on their own.
The Merc Drama Camps this year will be led by Megan Fox Hicks. Many of you might remember Megan as Lucy in The Merc’s 2010 production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Megan has been involved with dance and theater since she was three years old. She has a degree in Theater Education and currently teaches drama at Kalles Junior High School in Puyallup.
Camp hours are Monday – Friday 10am – 4 pm with a culminating performance Friday July 19 and August 9 at 4 pm. Campers provide their own lunch which will be enjoyed in the park each day for a chance to get outside.
DATES: July 15 – 19 & Aug 5-9, Mon-Fri, 10-4pm. FEE: $200 per week with a non-refundable $50 deposit that is required to hold your spot. The balance due before the first day of camp. Some partial scholarships are available. REGISTRATION/INFO: call the Merc Playhouse, 509.997.7529.
