Shiprock & Anchordog Get Energized
2017 is a Big Year for Shiprock & Anchordog!
We're doing our 7th annual workshop this summer, for two weeks from July 31st to August 13th. Our students in the workshop will create a rock-musical production about Shiprock & Anchordog and their adventures with sustainable energy. The focus will be on theater and the visual/musical arts that can support a theatrical production.
Kids will work on aspects of the production that they feel most excited about, whether that's crafting characters for the play, working on a dance routine, making up songs, or something different. It will be up to the kids what the story and show will look like. The performances will showcase what the kids have worked on in the two weeks of the program.
We feel that it's important to emphasize that the kids will not be told which part to play or what lines to say. We will encourage them to create their own characters and dialogue. We will facilitate the process and offer ideas when kids want them, but we want this show to be about creative freedom.
1 CAMP IN JULY/AUGUST 2017
At the very end of July and into August we will run a two-week workshop at The Hilltown Charter School in Easthampton, July 31st to August 13th.
The camp will run Monday through Friday, 9:00am-2:00pm with some aftercare available. The program will culminate in two shows on the weekend of August 12th & 13th at 2pm each day.
Payment is on a sliding scale: $350-$500 for the whole two-week camp, based on what you feel you can afford. We often offer financial aid as well, if families request it, based on how much we can afford to give.
Age limit is 5 and up, though we have had confident four-year-olds participate happily. Middle and high school students can apply to be CITs and attend camp free.
