The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Kings Play­house in Ge­orge­town and At­lantic Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts are part­ner­ing for their sec­ond per­form­ing arts camps of the summer.

Start­ing Mon­day, Aug. 14 the camp is en­ti­tled “Kids Rock”and prom­ises a week of rock in­spired mu­sic, dance and the­atri­cal im­pro­vi­sa­tion for chil­dren ages six to 13.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to an­other week of fun and cre­ativ­ity,” says At­lantic Acad­emy artis­tic di­rec­tor Sherri-Lee Dar­rach,

“The last camp was full of so much en­ergy and tal­ent, I can’t wait to meet some new faces as well as some re­turnees.”

Ha­ley Zavo, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor at the Kings Play­house, says that ev­ery summer the theatre looks for ways to help en­gage chil­dren in arts and cul­ture.

“Our per­form­ing arts camps of­fer a place where chil­dren can ex­plore, learn more about them­selves, de­velop skills and meet new friends,” she said.

“Our part­ner­ship with At­lantic Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts has brought such great en­ergy to our space and en­sures that par­tic­i­pants are re­ceiv­ing the ab­so­lute best in their classes.’

Kids Rock will in­clude ses­sions in makeup, char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment, rock in­flu­enced song and dance.

In­struc­tors in­clude Dar­rach (act­ing and im­pro­vi­sa­tion), Nick Whe­lan (dance) and Zavo (voice).

The week-long ses­sion will cul­mi­nate in an af­ter­noon per­for­mance on­stage at the Kings Play­house. For in­for­ma­tion, or to reg­is­ter, con­tact the Kings Play­house at info@kingsplay­ or 1-888-346-5666.
