"Cirque du Soul Mae"

Triple Threat Camp

/"Triple

Young Performing Artists have opportunity to be involved with our summer's "Triple-Threat" Arts Camp. Performers are involved with the creation of a 3/4 hour presentation piece which includes acting, singing, and dancing. Final presentations of their work will then be presented at the 2017 Corn & Apple Festival.

Soul Mae is about to lose it all. Her business is in dire straits and something has to be done before she loses everything she has poured her life into. Then suddenly some new ideas and energy is brought forward... will it be enough?

Students, together with camp staff, collaborate ideas from which a script and presentation will be created for the Corn and Apple. Though certain elements will be prepared in advance, the creation of the piece allows performers to be involved in the creative process to help them better understand how plays and musicals are not only structured, but also how to develop better story-telling through acting, dance, and music. Daily goals and objectives work towards creating a fun presentation and to stretch the performers abilities and creativity in a safe and enjoyable environment.
