Tuning in to TAP TV

by Erik Weasenforth, Marketing Associate VISTA

Yesterday I got to the opportunity to attend Theatre Action Project‘s (TAP) Spring Break Camp featuring TAP TV at Trinity United Methodist Church in Hyde Park. I also got to see the great things the campers were learning from our wonderful Teaching Artists and volunteers. Kids were creating posters, brainstorming ideas, rehearsing lines, and learning how to behave on a film set as well as operate cameras.

The most important things campers learned was about the content of the stories they were filming. Caroline Reck led them also through a warm-up game that taught them how to focus and imitate each other. She also guided them to think about their approach to constructive criticism without hurting anyone.

When they got to filming, the kids were all happy to do their parts whether it was directing, acting, or setting up props. It’s great to see the kids enjoying themselves by being creative and working as a team. Look for another updates soon. We will be posting their final videos online.

More camp fun is on the way this summer. Registration is open for our TAP Summer Camps. To register online visit:  TAP Camp.

P.S. My favorite hairstyle is Will Smith’s from Fresh Prince. See you at TAP’s Big Hair Country Fair on March 24th at the Salt Lick Pavilion! To buy tickets visit: TAP Big Hair. Proceeds benefit Theatre Action Project.
