Performing Arts & Music
Med-O-Lark’s Theater Program is formulated to appeal to children of all abilities. From campers who have never performed on stage to those with prior acting experience, our adult Performing Arts Staff create a comfortable and fun atmosphere, while producing quality shows that children are proud to participate in. Auditions are held for each show’s roles and every camper receives an assignment.
Med-O-Lark’s theater program has a non-competitive and supportive environment. This allows first time performers to feel safe in trying something new and exciting and more seasoned performers to enjoy our fully mounted, choreographed and staged productions with which to improve their skills.
Med-O-Lark offers a Musical, Cabaret and Play for four week campers and the One-Act play for two week campers. All shows are produced and performed onsite in either the Theater or Coliseum.
Med-O-Lark also offers theater related activities that allow children to become part of the productions without performing on stage. These include Set Design, Prop Management, Stage Makeup, Costume Manufacture and Theater Tech programs. These electives are open to campers of any age.
Med-O-Lark campers also enjoy our workshops of Improv, Shakespeare Monologues and Poetry Reading.
Music electives at Med-O-Lark are designed to appeal to Beginner and Intermediate level campers. Instruction in Acoustic, Electric and Bass guitar are popular. Keyboard, Piano and Percussion Instrument Instruction are offered. A fully equipped Recording Studio is available for campers who wish to record any songwriting, singing and performing that they have produced in the Music Studio. Children are encouraged to bring their personal instruments from home to showcase and share their skills with the community during sharing nights, talent shows and to participate in bands with.
Med-O-Lark attracts campers who wish to learn to sing, as well as those who presently love singing. Voice lessons, Acapella and choral groups are offered as elective activities to all children. Private voice lessons can be arranged during camper’s free periods.
