July 22nd-July 26th
9 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Dance Art Media Studios
No muggles allowed! Learn the ins and outs of acting in this magical play based off of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. When eleven-year-old Harry is summoned to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he meets several friends who help him discover the truth about his identity and his parents' mysterious death. Campers will explore the fundamentals of character development, acting technique, and scene study while rehearsing to perform for friends and family at the end of the week. Of course, there will be plenty of ensemble-building, games, fun, and friends (and maybe even a quidditch match)!
Harry Potter camp and performance will take place indoors at the Dance Art Media Studios in Littleton's Bowles Marketplace:
8996 West Bowles Avenue Unit #K2,
Littleton, CO 80123
Camp Price: $215
A non-refundable deposit of $90 will be due at the time of registration. Families may choose to pay in full, or may pay only the non-refundable deposit. The remaining amount will be automatically withdrawn from the entered payment method on Friday, July 19th. The $90 deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances. No refunds of any amount will be issued after July 19th
As part of Stagebugz's mission to make arts education available to all, Theater Accessibility Grants are available to those unable to cover the entire cost of registration. Please visit our Financial Aid page to learn more.
Harry Potter will culminate in a final performance where students can show off what they learned to family and friends. The performance will be held at 12:00 PM on Friday, July 26th in the same location as camp.
Auditions and Casting
Every student is guaranteed a role with speaking lines upon registering. Auditions simply help us to determine which spot each performer will enjoy and gain the most from. Summer camp is a great opportunity for every young actor to break out of their comfort zone and have a chance to take centerstage, so every camper will play a featured role.
Auditions for Harry Potter will be run workshop-style on the first day of camp. No prior preparation is required. The cast list will be sent out by the end of the night on July 22nd. We do our best to find a role that each child will be excited about, but please remember that in Stagebugz shows, there truly are no small parts. Additionally, many factors go into casting a show, and not receiving their desired role is not a reflection of a child's level of talent.
