Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre’s Summer Drama Camps are a great way to practice the theatre arts, perform on stage, and meet new friends.
ALL CAMPS are held at our theatre located at our rehearsal space in Pleasanton, CA 1020 Serpentine Lane Suite 101
Each camp is a two week session. Camp hours are 9:00am through 3:00 pm. Monday through Friday
Drama is an integrated discipline. Athletic, musical, visual, and collaborative. The Children's Theatre summer programs emphasize individual responsibility within a team environment.
Ensemble technique is a physical and vocal approach to theater that values the success of the group as a whole. Students develop the necessary skills applicable to public presentation as they explore the creative use of body and voice. Through warm-ups, group work, theatre games and performance assignments, students explore the creative use of body and voice, developing a sense of confidence in front of classmates and an audience. The class climate is encouraging, fun, and dynamic.
Each student engages in drama exercises that focus on ensemble technique, the essence of any successful theatrical experience and team endeavor. Class sessions strengthen each student's ability to compromise and negotiate, lead as well as follow, generate and weed out ideas.
Games are designed to heighten kinesthetic awareness and strengthen listening skills. Students learn to use voices and bodies expressively to tell stories and to convey emotions and ideas.
During class time, students perform many times for each other, either solo or with a group. In the recital pieces all students share equal responsibility for the success of their performance. Each camp will conclude with a show production presented for parents, family and friends.
