Hope area students are invited to learn the ins and outs of the stage, including acting, improv and screenplay writing, at the second annual Drama Camp next week.

The free week-long camp, which is open to first through twelfth grades, will be taught by Hope actor Pete Law with a special guest instructor each day.
Students in grades first through third will meet from 10 a.m. to noon each day and students in fourth grade through high school senior will gather from noon to 4 p.m.

“This year the camp will be a bit more concentrated like an intensive,” says Law.

Students will learn the basics of acting, improv and writing, Law says. But above all, he hopes to ignite creativity.

“I love to see kids enjoy acting and improv,” Law says. “I love to see them create their own scenes and try different things.”

Everything the students learn throughout the week will culminate in a showcase presentation for friends, family and the public at 1:30 p.m. Friday June 14 at the Hauser Jr. – Sr. High School auditorium.
