The Center For Performing Arts at Rhinebeck has expanded its summer programming to better meet the needs of campers ages 5 to 95. A new modular programming system allows campers to attending a morning session, afternoon class, or stay the entire day.
New afternoon sessions have been added in specialty areas such as Hair and Makeup, Puppetry, Auditioning, Dance and Music. Young thespians seeking challenging performance opportunities will enjoy three-week Kids on Stage Performance Camps where productions of “Peter Pan, Jr.” and “Guys and Dolls, Jr.” will be produced. One-week stagecraft camps offer the chance to perform in Scene Study, an abbreviated version of “Snow White,” or a Center play written especially for children ages 5 to 7.
In addition to stagecraft camps for younger children, The Center offers programming specifically geared toward middle school and high students, as well as adults.
“The Center has a summer program to suit almost any age level, commitment level and interest,” said Babette Fasolino, The Center’s education director. “Students can enjoy a glimpse into live theater, or immerse themselves into a full production.”
Fasolino also adds that The Center provides tuition discounts for siblings as well as financial assistance for families in need, and encourages them to call her directly at 845-876-3088 ext. 13.
The camp starts July 7 and runs through Aug. 29. Registration is completely online this year, and parents can register at www.centerforperformingarts.org/summer-camp.
