THEATRE CAMP SESSION TWO: The Entire American Revolution (in 40 minutes or less)

Open to students in 3rd  – 8th Grade as of Fall 2018

Casting will begin the first day of camp as students prepare for a rewarding theatre experience that is performance based.  The show is not a musical so it is a great way to feature kids who do not like to sing/dance and allows kids who have a musical theatre background the opportunity to experience performing in a straight play! This year the participants will present The Entire AmericaN Revolution (in 40 minutes or less). You think HAMILTON is fun…wait till you see this!

History has never been so fun...  or so fast!  Flying through the major points of America’s quest for independence, this fast-and-loose comedy plays like a highlight reel of history in hilarious fashion!  Sorry, Hamilton’s busy in a different play, but your audience will both laugh and learn as they watch patriots such as George Washington, Paul Revere, Samuel and John Adams, Patrick Henry, and Benjamin Franklin battle the vain King George III and his British soldiers.  From the Boston Tea Party to the Battle of Bunker Hill (Did you know it was really Breed Hill?!)  to the crossing of the Delaware and onward to the British surrender at Yorktown.
