(Cincinnati, OH) Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC) presents a summer of fun, active camps, which feature a variety of fun opportunities for kids and teens to connect with and learn from world-class theater professionals. In response to the ongoing pandemic and building upon last year’s successful and creative socially-distanced format, all 2021 summer camps are currently scheduled to be held virtually. The camp day is structured to ensure participants are active and moving while still following instruction through a screen.
In addition to performance-focused camps and classes, ETC’s popular, one-of-a-kind Technical Theatre Intensive is a unique chance for aspiring artists who are eager to participate in theatre but who may prefer working behind-the-scenes. Featuring workshops taught by the same incredible talent that grace the ETC stage, participants will learn from the very best. No audition is necessary, however, space is limited.
Although the learning platform has shifted, the goals are still the same, with students leaving instruction equipped with a strong foundation of acting and production skills along with a practical portfolio, which may include a voiceover reel, on-camera acting experience, and set design.
