The Imperial Theatre is excited to announce that we will be holding a Cyber Theater Summer Camp, from Monday, June 24ththru Friday, June 28th, 2019. While there are many learning and training opportunities for students who are interested in performing arts whether it is theatrical, dance forms or music, there is little training available locally that includes a comprehensive overview of the various technical disciplines associated with stage craft. The Cyber Summer Theatre Camp will cover technical direction, lighting, audio/sound, rigging, box-office administration, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a review of safety including automated fire systems for individuals interested in learning more about the technical aspects of theatre in the 21st Century.
Cyber Summer Theatre Camp is for rising 8th graders, high school and college students interested in learning about the use of computers, electronic technology and web-based platforms that support the technical aspects of theatre, and the interdisciplinary approach taken by the crew leaders and members to provide the highest level of service to performing arts organizations, promoters and others that utilize the theatre for their productions and events with the result being a magical and meaningful experience for their patrons.
The classes will take place from 9 am to 1 pm, Monday, June 24th thru Friday, June 28th at the Imperial Theatre.
The registration fee is $150.00 per student with scholarships available on a case-by-case basis for economically challenged students.
Registration for the Imperial Theatre’s Cyber Summer Theatre Camp is available online HERE!
Students and attendees 17 years old and younger will be required to have a parent’s or guardian’s permission to attend. Permission slips will e-mailed to the e-mail address that appears in the registration information.
Funding for this project comes from the Greater Augusta Arts Council regrant of funds from Augusta, Richmond County.
