Spots Still Open for Frosty Fun Days
2014-12-07 CATEGORY: Education
Starlight Theatre’s winter-break camp, Frosty Fun Days, still has spots available for aspiring young artists ages 6 to 10. Your kids will be active and entertained as they explore the world of musical theatre!
Now in its third year, this interactive day camp will meet indoors at Starlight on Monday, Dec. 29 and Tuesday, Dec. 30. Students may register for one day or both.
Each day’s agenda is packed with theatre games, storytelling, music, dance and movement. Campers even make props and create a piece of live theatre to share with their new friends during each day’s finale – the Shivery Showoff!
