The Leeds Arts Council is pleased to announce their first theatre camp designed specifically for students in grades 1-5! We will be producing Seussical Jr. while teaching theatre basics that your child can bring into any theatre experience. This camp is great for students with or without theatre experience and everyone will learn something through this process!
The workshop will be held July 25-August 5 at the Leeds Theater and Arts Center, in downtown Leeds. The workshop is a two-week workshop, with students attending 8 am to 12 noon, Monday through Friday. There will be three performances: Friday, August 5 at 7 PM, Saturday, August 6 at 2 PM and 7 PM. The theatre camp will be directed by Natalie Godsey, Harper Soileau, Meghan Godsey, and Olivia Soileau, college students who have participated in and been counselors for theatre camps in Leeds and Trussville for over 10 years.
Seussical Jr. is a story all about the power of imagination! Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
The cost of the workshop is $225 per child. If more than one child from a family attends, the cost of any additional child will be $200. Workshop registration can be paid online or by check on the first day of camp. Each child who attends the workshop will have a part in the play and will appear on stage. Tickets to all four performances will be open to family and friends of students for $6 each.
Enrollment will be limited to 25 students. Click on the button below to complete your registration form. We are looking forward to a great workshop!
We would love for your child to be a part of this experience, so if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Seussical Jr. team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
