Arts Garage in Delray Beach Announces SET THE STAGE, PLACES EVERYONE! Unique Theatre Camps for Kids

eTradeWire News/10555025
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - eTradeWire -- (Delray Beach, FL – February 14, 2020) Marjorie Waldo, President & CEO of Arts Garage, today announced that the nonprofit organization will once again present SET THE STAGE, PLACES EVERYONE!—unique summer theatre camps for kids and teens. This exciting multidisciplinary experience will help young artists learn about all aspects of theatre..

This summer's SET THE STAGE is divided into three sessions:

+ Session I for Ages 6-9 / June 1-19

+ Session II for Ages 10-12 / June 22-July 10

+ Session III for Ages 13-17 / July 13-31

The participating young performers will feel like real professionals as they learn the ins and outs of producing their own play. The campers are the writers, directors, techies and actors, as well as costume and set designers. Of course, each session will culminate in a live, original showcase.

"This is a really cool project," says Waldo. "The kids have incredible feedback at the end of each camp where they talk about how they came out of their shells, made new friends, learned to collaborate and compromise and share their ideas. It's truly amazing."

"Best of all, financial aid is available to young summer campers thanks to the generosity of The Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Family Foundation and matching donors from the Arts Garage," she adds. "Our cost may be $600 per student per session, but we are determined to make sure that any child who wants to enroll in the SET THE STAGE summer camps can do so. We will not turn down any parent who wants to enroll their child."

"Why does the Arts Garage do this? Because we believe the arts are transformative," says Waldo. "Participation in theatre camp, as well as many other arts education experiences, makes a difference - especially for children. They learn so much about themselves, about their fellow campers, and about the art form they are studying. We already know what the research proves: Children perform better in school, improve their problem-solving and communication skills, and have higher self-esteem when they are exposed to the arts."
