Lexington Children’s Theater to Create Camps in Lawrenceburg

Anderson County children interested in drama and music will have a great option this summer as the Lexington Children’s Theater will be offering two special camps here in Lawrenceburg.

Meredith Hyatt Lewis, owner and operator of the Lawrenceburg Academy of Performing Arts, will be hosting the children’s theater after contacting them earlier in the year to see if they would setup a satellite camp in Anderson County for the first time.  She explained that the camps will be great for students either interested in only drama or students who would like to include musical performances.

The week long camps, which will be housed at the Lawrenceburg Academy of Performing Arts on College Street, will be conducted directly by the Lexington Children’s Theater.  The first camp will be for students ages 8-14 and will be for children interested in only drama.  Called “Fairy Tales with a Twist,” the camp will be a performance workshop allowing children to improve their acting and performing skills. The camp will be held from June 26th-30th.

In the following month, the children’s theater will hold a music theater revue for children ages 9 through 16.  Called the “Triple Threat,” this camp will bring together elements from three popular musicals, including the Wizard of Oz, The Wiz, and Wicked.  According to Meredith, it will engage students from both sides of the age range.  This camp will be held from July 24th-28th.

At the end of both camps, Meredith explained that the children will get to show off what they learned to their parents and more at Saffell Street Elementary as they use the stage there to do a performance.

For more information and to register, check out the Lawrenceburg Academy of Performance Arts website.  Registration for the camps is due on May 15th and space is limited.
