OMG! It’s time to “Bend and Snap” into this year’s exciting summer theatre experience with ETC! (Educational Theatre for Children) founded by Sue Johnson, Sheila Thompson, Anital Pellegrini, and Nika Plattos. This is the same core of theatrical mavens who have brought you quality theatre experiences with other entities in the DeKalb, LaSalle and Kendall County areas and are now striking out on their own. Joined by additional staff members Joel Huffman, Hunter Lindner, Megan Johnson, and Daun Greif, this year’s summer camp is sure to be a memorable and successful one.
The high school camp is proud to be presenting Legally Blonde the Musical. Based on the hit movie of the same name starring Reese Witherspoon, the show emphasizes the concepts that looks can be deceiving and anyone can succeed if they put their heart and soul into their endeavors. Coordinating with these positive affirmations is the junior camp theme of “Free to be ME”. Anti-bullying and self-acceptance will be the focus.
Both camps begin on July 9 in the Yorkville HS auditorium. Junior camp runs from July 9-20 from 9-11am. Shows for this camp are Friday, July 20 at 7pm and Saturday, July 21 at 2pm. This unique and valuable theatrical experience costs $90 and includes a camp t-shirt. The HS rehearsals run from 12-3pm on July 9-20 and from 9-3 on July 23-27. The final production hits the stage at 7pm on Saturday, July 28 and 2pm on Sunday, July 29. The $120 registration fee covers script rental, royalties, and a camp t-shirt.
