CYT Stage Right Camp for 6th-8th graders
Jun 27 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am
CYT Stage Right Camp for 6th-8th graders @ The Clayton Center

Launching for the first time in 2019, Stage Right is a three-week camp giving 6th-8th grade students the opportunity to explore the components of musical theatre and develop the skills necessary to be successful on stage. Each week will focus on a different skill set – acting, singing, and dancing. Offering small class sizes and personal instruction, participants will be taught by the production staff of Carolina Youth Theatre’s summer musical in a nurturing environment that will build confidence and help students understand their strengths and weaknesses on stage. Students will benefit most by participating in all three sessions. Material for each week will be drawn from The Wizard of Oz.

Stage Right will open for registration on April 22 as a three-week package.  Should space remain, individual weeks will open for registration on May 1, 2019. Visit carolinayouththeatre.com for more information.
