It’s time to drag out those Winter woolies from the back of the wardrobe – WE’RE HEADING TO CAMP!
Now in its third year, ADS DRAMA CAMP has become one of the most anticipated events on the school calendar. In this Four Day/Three Night Camp, students work intensively with our most Advanced teachers to imagine, create and explore in a safe and nurturing learning environment. Once the hard work is done, students enjoy a range of social activities which see friendships form which can last a lifetime!
Unlike previous years, our 2019 Drama Camp will see students focus heavily on performance based outcomes, with our Senior Teachers and special guests tutors tailoring a range of workshops that allow students to not only create, but share their work with their peers. After all – if you’ve got the skills, flaunt it!
Some highlights of our 2019 Drama Camp Program include:
QUIET ON SET! Short Film Project with Johnathon White
An immersive insight into what it takes to make a movie! Students are provided with a script, production plan andfilming schedule. Directed by our resident filmmaker Johnathon White (with coaching by our Adv. Acting Teachers) students will see what it really takes to make magic on the silver screen.
TRY THAT AGAIN…BUT BETTER with Jaclyn DeVincentis
By building an authentic connection to text, strong focus on storytelling & implementation of constructive feedback, each actor will unlock the skills needed to perform an engaging & believable scene. Stretched across four days, this workshop culminates in a final day Showcase where peers share their work.
PRACTITIONERS UNDER PRESSURE with Amy Bryans
Working in small groups, students will learn how to bust through the walls that block creativity, trust their instincts and back their decisions when working against a ticking clock!
THE ART OF ABSURDISM with Stephanie Clark
It’s time to step out of the box! Or be in the box. Do a whole performance sitting inside of a box… or on a box… or behind a box. It’s absurd. It’s wacky. It’s hard but it’s theatre.
MAKE ME LAUGH with Stephen Valeri & Amy Bryans
From saving a dropped line, accepting offers to landing the perfect zinger, the art of Improv allows students to learn how to work as a team while taking big risks (for big reward!)
OWNING THE ROOM with Stephen Valeri
Breathe. Stand up straight. Don’t fidget. What seems straight forward in theory can be virtually impossible in practice. Actors will learn how to master the nerves, remain confident and get out of their own way in order to make a lasting impression.
PLUS some old (and new) camp favourites! Be warned…there will be marshmallows.
