This project addressed the issues of youth involvement, skills development, and cultural and community social health by offering a week of learning drama, set design and ending the week with a live theater production. Seneca County children grades 4-12 were provided no-cost breakfast and lunch with the help of the South Seneca School Food Services Program and the NYS Feeding Program. Very positive feedback was received from campers and families about the week.
Willard residents received $350 to provide seven scholarships for their summer theatrical camp and showcase performance on August 15th. These students would not have had the opportunity for Summer Theatre Camp had it not been for the mini- grant. An added bonus was seeing our logo on the back of the tie-die shirts the group wore with pride. The theater camp director reported an outstanding week.
This was a project coordinated by the Between The Lakes Community Service Players. They recently celebrated 10 years of Musical Theatre, Theatre Education and Community Service in the Finger Lakes! Since 2004 they have been bringing musical theatre experiences to the people of the Finger Lakes enhancing the lives of youth through their summer theatre camps.
This project helped fund scholarships to their Summer Youth Theatre Camp: "Aspects of The Stage". Aspects of the Stage, musical theatre camp was held August 11-15th, 2014. They worked with students through out the area in various aspects of musical theatre. Their campers, in grades 4-12 participated in creating, learning and performing in the areas of singing; dancing; acting; improvisation; costuming; make up; props; set design and construction. Their week culminated with a Showcase Celebration, where campers got to give their audience a glimpse of what they learned and created throughout the week.
