Our Act Now! Drama Camps are open for registration for the 2023 season! Your child's safety and the safety of our community is our highest concern, so we will be operating under the guidelines outlined by Public Health and WorkSafe NB.
About Our Camps
Our Drama Camps give participants a chance to experience theatre first hand through our tried and true method of creative drama activities and participatory games. Throughout the weeklong camp, The Junior Calithumpians are active - acting, singing and dancing - making “Act Now” not just a catchy title, but a promise. Campers get to enjoy a peek behind-the-scenes of the Calithumpians’ Theatre In The Park and are treated to the live lunchtime performances by the professional troupe. Various members of the summer troupe provide specialized short workshops on singing, dancing, improvisation, and outdoor games. Each week culminates in a short play written and performed by the camp participants.
Beginning in 2011, Calithumpians recognized the need for a program that would give local underprivileged children a chance to attend our summer drama camps on a waived fee basis. Because of a demand in the community, and because of the value our camps have in fostering creativity and confidence in youth, The Calithumpians Scholarship program was started in partnership with local businesses, and over the years more than 500 underprivileged kids have had the chance to become Junior Calithumpians. If you are a local business operator or private benefactor and you would be willing to sponsor a child or children, or if you are a teacher, parent, or guardian of a child or children who otherwise would not be able to participate in our program, please take a look at our Scholarship Page and contact us!
