Thanks for a great 2019 camp season!
Designed for rising 1st graders through rising 9th graders, MVCCT's drama camps stretch kids’ imaginations, nurture their creative energies, and build skills through dramatic action. Kids explore different worlds, different time periods, and their own personal strengths through the story-telling they act out on stage.
All our camps are led by professional performers and educators experienced in working with kids and teens. Two-week sessions feature AM drama and PM musical theatre (with discount if you stay all day!); before and after care programs. Sibling discounts available for all sessions.
Sessions 1-4 are held at Heritage Presbyterian Church 8503 Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria VA 22308
The Pohick Session is held at Pohick Church, 9301 Richmond Hwy, Lorton VA 22079
Throughout these two-week sessions, campers will be guided through actor training and theatre games that professional actors regularly use to sharpen their craft and technique, exercising their minds, bodies, voices and imaginations. A portion of each day's session, am and pm, will be devoted to rehearsing a short performance piece to be performed on the final day of camp. Afternoons will be devoted to rehearsal of a short musical theatre piece. Under the guidance of a professional music director, each student will learn to use their voices safely and effectively.
