Registration open for HHS youth musical theatre camp

By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

HELENA–Lights, camera, action! This summer there will be a fun opportunity for children interested in learning about music and theater thanks to a five-day camp hosted by the Helena High School Theater Arts department.

After seeing a big turnout last summer for the inaugural camp, the Helena High School Choral and Theatre Departments will once again offer the summer musical theatre camp July 16-20.

The camp will be open to any child that has completed kindergarten through fifth grade.

Campers will receive rotations of music and singing each day along with staging recreation and a snack. On the final day of the camp, there will be a presentation for family and friends.

The cost of the camp is $75 per camper and individuals will receive three hours of instruction each day from 8-11 a.m. in the Helena High School auditorium.

The camp will be directed by HHS Theater Director Jefferson Casey where campers will learn to sing and dance.

Those wishing to participate in the camp are encouraged to register by June 23 to ensure one receives a camp T-shirt. Registration will be accepted after June 23, but those campers may not receive a T-shirt.

When dropping off campers, parents should follow signs and park in the cafeteria worker parking lot.

Each camper should come prepared each day by wearing gym shorts, tennis shoes and a T-shirt.

Checks should be made payable to Helena High School.
