Lifeline Theatre Virtual Summer Camps
July 5 - July 30
Lifeline Theatre is excited to offer Summer Camps right into your home! After much deliberation, and out of an abundance of caution, Lifeline has decided to keep our camps online this summer. The company will continue to deliver Big Stories and BIG FUN with activities and games that will take camper’s imagination to faraway places. Lifeline Theatre is determined to bring all the fun – and as much social interaction as possible – to the virtual space, with onscreen and off-screen projects.
Theatre Camp will still focus on adaptation and performance, and Lifeline’s experienced instructors have found meaningful ways to explore the actors’ tools and create ensemble by embracing the digital platform. Camps will take place via Zoom, so to participate, campers will need access to a tablet or computer with a good Wifi connection.
