Park Theater’s educational arm, ParkArts, will host a summer theater day camp August 2-4.
ParkArts will offer performing arts education programs for children and adults throughout the year. Its first program is a three-day summer camp where children ages 8-12 will experience acting, movement, puppetry, drama and play. The camp is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. All activities take place in the auditoriums and event spaces of the Park Theater at 19 Main St. in Jaffrey. Tuition is $75 and includes a ParkArts t-shirt for the camper.
Susan Schenk will be the camp director. Schenk spent 27 years in public education as a teacher, reading consultant, and theater program coordinator. During this time, she produced and/or directed plays and musicals at the high school, middle school and elementary levels. In addition, she worked as an educational consultant. Schenk has attended the Broadway Teachers Workshop in New York and the Goodspeed Opera House Professional Development Course in East Haddam, Connecticut.
