OverKnight Theater Camp at Linwood Park! Two Days (and Nights) of Theater Fun!

 

Where: Linwood Park – Linwood and Athens Ave in Ardmore, PA. Rain location TBD!

 

When:

 

  • Friday, August 14th, 6:30 PM sign in and snack. Be prepared to be at the Park for at least 2 hours that eve! Then go home and rest up for the next day!
  • Saturday, August 15th – reconvene at 9:00 AM to start to put together and practice a play to be performed that evening at the Park!

 

What:

 

A theater camp where the participants will write, stage, and perform a play within a 24 -hour period! Run by established Shakespearean actor (and Ardmore resident) Mark Knight. The Friday evening session will include dividing the group into smaller groups and beginning to form the play or plays (depending on how the campers see their ideas fitting the space). Participants will decide if they would like to be writers, actors, costumers, musicians, etc. The Saturday session will include figuring out what the ‘pieces’ are like and working out a promenade order. Each group can rehearse in their area. By 6pm we’ll have a stumble-cue-thru which means we’ll open with Mark’s intro & then he will lead a fake ‘audience to each group for them to do their opening & closing. After that we’ll organize the big bow/curtain-call for the end. Showtime at 7:30 PM! Lunch and dinner will be provided but not fancy, so feel free to bring snacks and/or drinks.

 

Who:

 

ALL ages and abilities are welcome, whether adult or child, actor or just want to learn, musician, interested in writing or staging, or just helping out.   This is NOT a drop off camp for kids. At least one parent/adult will be required to be with a child or group of kids under the age of 13. This will be strictly enforced, as we want this to be a participatory process and a safe and fun experience for all.

 

Cost:

 

FREE! Mr. Knight is generously donating his time, talents, and energy. The Friends of Linwood Park will be purchasing the food.
