Rockin’ Tale of Snow White on July 18 – 30 for full day students, The tale of Snow White has never felt so fresh with this funny adaptation. New characters and comedic twists come to life as a modern mom reads the Brothers Grimm tale to her restless children. In addition to the well-known cast of the kind princess, evil queen, multiple dwarves and the morally conflicted Huntsman, this musical introduces us to some fresh new faces such as rhyme-happy ladies-in-waiting and a stick-in-the-mud governmental representative out to ruin everyone’s good time! Musical styles include a rousing mixture of hip-hop, rock and roll, doo wop and more! With its tongue-in-cheek humor, catchy songs new and seasoned campers will have a chance to learn and grow skills in music, theatre, and dance.

King Midas and the Palace of Gold on August 1 - 13 King Midas is a powerful ruler who can think only of gold. His lovely daughter, Princess Penelope, is having a birthday, and noble guests come from far and wide, including the handsome Prince Ajax, who loves Penelope. Three mystical sisters present the princess with the gift of one wish, which Penelope lovingly gives to her father. He uses his wish to receive ’The Golden Touch.’ At first he’s ecstatic but slowly it dawns on him that even a king cannot eat gold food or drink gold water. When he mistakenly touches Penelope, she, too, turns to gold! How Midas learns his lesson but is punished for his greed makes this popular tale a musical delight. Campers will explore and learn songs, characters and bring this script to life in a active-based fun filled camp. This musical adaptation is rich in both lessons and laughter.
Tuition is $300 for full-day.
Daily schedule includes classes which help build skills in acting, movement, improvisation, music, and cooperative abilities. Students will learn all aspects of theatre in this hands-on learning opportunity. The Majestic fosters a close student-teacher relationship that helps us meet the needs of every young artist. Our goal is to tailor the experience your child will have as they are given the attention and interaction they need to be successful in having a GREAT time learning about theatre and performing arts. A culminating camp showcase will be held on the final Saturday of each camp.
