CT-A presents summer theatre camp

Youngsters can spend the summer learning the ways of the force -- of the theatre – when Corinth Theatre-Arts holds its annual theatre camp for youngsters, Mondays-Fridays, June 16-27, at CT-A, 303 S. Fulton Drive.
This fun Shakespeare- and Star Wars-themed camp, based loosely on the book “Verily, A New Hope,” by Ian Doescher, will teach students methods in acting, speaking in verse, stage combat, prop building, playwriting, mask making and more, said Cris Skinner, CT-A artistic director.
Students will learn how to create a show from writing, to acting to behind-the-scenes work, she added.
Camp instructors will be Skinner, a theatre and film director, and Cheryl Sproles, of Tupelo, a winner of the Eudora Welty New Playwright Series and former CT-A technical director.
“Whether they decide to do theatre or not, these students often find life-long friends and become patrons of the arts. Some find the spark for professional careers, although that isn’t our goal,” Skinner said. “The camp helps students overcome shyness and learn to solve problems creatively and ultimately how to work as a group. All this while they are having fun and expressing themselves.”
Junior camp, for ages 6-11, is from 9 a.m. to noon both weeks. Cost is $100. Senior camp, for ages 12-18, is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $175. Campers will present their work on the evening of Friday, June 27.
Cost includes a T-shirt. Some scholarships are available. Deadline to register is Friday, June 13. For details, email CT-A at corinth.theatre.arts@gmail.com, call 662.287.2995 or drop by the theatre, 1-6 p.m.,
