The Wizard of Oz
July 8 - July 19
9 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Columbine United Church
Come over the rainbow with Stagebugz this summer! In this two week camp, students will join Dorothy and Toto as they sing and dance their way to Oz and meet a host of zany characters along the way. Young performers will work towards putting on their very own musical as they learn all about singing, dancing, and acting through musical rehearsals, character development, community building, and theater games!
The Wizard of Oz camp and performance will take place indoors at Columbine United Church in Littleton:
6375 S Platte Canyon Rd
Littleton, CO 80123
Camp Price: $425
A non-refundable deposit of $175 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 The remaining amount will be automatically withdrawn from the entered payment method on Friday, July 5th. The $175 deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances. No refunds of any amount will be issued after July 5th.
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.
The Wizard of Oz will culminate in a final performance where students show off what they learned to family and friends. The performance will be held at 12:00 p.m. on July 19th at Columbine United Church.
Auditions and Casting
Every student is guaranteed a role with at least one line and one solo 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 all campers will play a featured role in The Wizard of Oz.
Auditions 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 8th. 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.
Sample Camp Day
Each day of camp is a little bit different, as we tailor lessons and activities to best fit the needs of our students. However, every day will include rehearsal time, a special skills workshop, games, and team building.
