Kids write, design, and act in plays

June 20, 2013

In 'Kids Do It All," camp participants learn skills such as speech and voice projection, dance and movement, set and prop design, stage combat and vaudeville tricks. Kids also get a head start in the critical areas of self-esteem, working with others, collective problem solving, sense of community, and public presence.

Professionals who've worked in New York and in L.A. in theatre and television, will show kids how to mount a fully-staged play.University Center for the Arts

Kids Do It All, one of the most innovative theatre programs in the country (founded in 1991 at The Children’s School in La Jolla, Calif. by Walt Jones), is now offered in Ft. Collins.  

The annual Kids Do It All youth music-theatre program is a week-long collective creation intensive day camp during the months of June and July.

Age groups

The entire process of theatre—from playwriting to performance, from design through musical composition—resulting in original plays created and performed by students in three age-groups: 7-9, 10-11, 12-13.

A broad spectrum of experience

Camp participants write, design and compose musical plays entirely of their own devising-experiencing a practical application of all aspects of theatre practice-from acting, movement, voice, props and scene design, and songwriting, in multiple week-long workshops guided by music, theatre, dance and art students and faculty.

Date, time, registration

Each session meets in the University Center for the Arts, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Saturdays conclude with a full production performance attended by parents, family, and friends.
