Laugh, learn, explore, perform, and create some of your best-ever summer memories at the PAC!

Youth entering 3rd-10th grades (in the fall of 2024) are invited to join us for our 2024 Summer Theatre Camp, where you’ll audition for, be cast in, and mount full productions together under the guidance of experienced theatrical directors and educators. Make new friends, find out about the Happy Box, enjoy camp dress-up days, and earn prizes from the camp treasure chest in this incredible, enjoyable summer offering.

Campers will be cast in one of two shows based on age. The younger group will perform Disney’s Finding Nemo Kids, and the older group will perform Game of Tiaras.

Disney’s Finding Nemo Kids* (directed by Anna Zimmerman, with Danika Simon). Explore the big blue world with this lively 30-minute musical based on the beloved Pixar film! Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.

 

Game of Tiaras*, by Don Zolidis (directed by Jennifer Hamilton, with Alex Herd, and choreography by Gidget Manucci). A delightfully funny, family-friendly comedy. When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resemble copyrighted characters), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones, and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you laughing.

 About Jennifer Hamilton, Camp Director: Jennifer started volunteering for the local community theatre in high school and never stopped. As the Education Director at Topeka Civic Theatre and Academy, she established and grew Educational Programming, directed over 50 Youth and Theatre for Young Audiences productions, grew summer camp, and took programming into schools. Jennifer continues to bring theatre to youth on the Oregon Coast through a partnership with the Newport Performing Arts Center, providing after-school theatre classes, workshops, and summer camps. Jennifer became involved with AACT in 2008 when she facilitated the Education Director’s conference. She was provided the opportunity to do that again in 2018 and continues to work with the Youth Activities committee to grow the next generation of AACT members and volunteers. She is a board member of Porthole Players in Newport, OR.

About Anna Zimmerman, Associate Director: Anna has loved theater her whole life. She performed in many plays while she was in school and proceeded to major in theater at Portland State University. She also loves teaching, so she got her masters in education while still performing around the Portland area and working in children’s theater camps in the summer. Now, after moving to the coast, she has performed in multiple productions at the Newport Performing Arts Center (PAC), including The Addams Family, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Othello, all while teaching at Toledo Elementary School. Now she is thrilled to combine her two loves, teaching and theater, by directing one of this year’s summer theater camp productions.
