Civic Theatre conducts scholarship drive for summer camps and classes

It is that time of year again. We have received a number of scholarship applications to our sold-out summer camps and we want to keep our tradition alive of never turning anyone away.

Campers in the four-week intensive camp will receive vocal, movement, dance and acting training from Melanie R. Buchanan and Cecil Shoemaker five days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will use these skills to mount a full production of Annie Jr. in late July on Civic Theatre's Historic Monon Depot Theatre stage.

Other one-week camps are being held this summer for children ages 6-18. Improv camps, musical theatre camps and general theatre skills camps help give someone a step into the magical world of theatre.

We are trying to raise $2,000 to support the scholarship fund this year. Your gift will join $500 already raised toward this great cause, including a lead gift by the Lafayette Kiwanis Foundation.

Help us make a young camper's theatrical dreams come true.
