CFTC Performing Camp: The Actor’s Showcase
Session A is performing the play, Incognito, by Debra A. Cole. This script can be found in the Drama Notebook library at https://www.dramanotebook.com/plays-for-kids/
This camp is designed for the camper who enjoys performing a scripted piece while also developing their acting skills. During this one-week camp, performers will rehearse and perform a shorter one act play or a series of shorter scripts while also engaging in masterclasses and activities that hone their theatre making skills. Throughout the week, the campers will explore their actor’s toolbox of body, voice, imagination, concentration, and collaboration. The scripted piece will be announced on the first day of camp, and the magic of theatre will start from there. The final performance showcase will be shared on the last day.
