Students ages 6 to 10 can warm up their imaginations and performance skills over winter break by participating in Frosty Fun Days at Starlight Theatre. Now in its third year, this interactive day camp gives students an opportunity to explore the world of musical theatre.
This year’s sessions are offered indoors at Starlight on Monday, December 29 and Tuesday, Dec. 30. Students may register for one day or both. Each day’s agenda is packed full of theatre games, storytelling, music, dance and movement. Campers even make props and create a piece of live theatre to share with their new friends during each day’s finale – the Shivery Showoff!
The registration fee for one day is $45, or $81 for both days (a 10% discount). Camp runs 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily with before and after care available for an additional fee.
