Spring Breaking!


It’s day 2 of TAP’s Spring Break Camp. The office is quiet with camp staff and volunteers on site at the Rawson Saunders School working with campers on “Lights, Camera, Action!” who are creating original films this week. Budding Steven Spielberg’s and Kathryn Bigelow’s are in the making! We can’t wait to see their films.

If you are interested in signing up for TAP’s Summer Camp, we are taking online registration NOW. Click here to sign up!

Theatre Action Project is also searching for volunteers to help our staff at this year’s summer camp, June 20 – August 12, at the McCallum Fine Arts Academy. The full day camps are for students ages 5-12. Camp students are divided into smaller groups and work toward a final sharing at the end of the week for parents and families. Each week is a different theme ranging from acting, puppetry, and playmaking to dance, music and filmmaking.

Who is the ideal camp volunteer? It is someone who likes to work with young people, uses their imagination and creativity, and wants to learn more about theatre from our TAP staff.

Volunteers help TAP staff distribute supplies, participate in activities, and keep an eye on student behavior. They will work directly with the campers during creative art projects and give praise and guidance to campers. Other responsibilities may include helping students learn lines or staging, leading outdoor group games, and sharing any other theatre skills and interests during the camps. Camp volunteers are needed 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. We would like to have two volunteers for each of the eight weeks of camp. If you can help for 1 week, two, or more, we would love to hear from you.

Please contact Kelly Schiller, Community Relations VISTA at kelly@theatreactionproject.org if you are interested in working as a summer camp volunteer.
