10-12yrs (NEW) Neptune Academy

July 27 - 31 & August 4 - 7 (9 days)

$475

(9am - 4pm)

Introducing the Summer Neptune Academy for 10-12 year olds. This is a nine day intensive that will take tiny triple threat performers to the next level! This focused program is intended for students who have been studying with us for a few years and who want the opportunity to see what it's like to be in a "professional" show.

(note, we will not be able to incorporate in person singing in this camp. We will therefore focus on scripts and scenes and any singing options can be filmed at home to be edited in at a later date).

With skills-based classes in performance combined with rehearsals, we will build a 20 minute “virtual production”. Students will be challenged and gain important knowledge in what it takes to reach their performance goals. After a little audition on the second day, every student will be assigned some lines and a basic costume and character. We will have little time for games (this is not your regular summer camp); pack your movement clothes, pencils, and highlighters. Learn about blocking, rehearsals, choreography and staging, and how to take your script and create a performance worthy of an audience. We currently plan on “live-streaming” the final production. 

Experienced Students only: Students must have attended at least two of our March Break or Summer Camps, or at least two of our Seasonal Class Sessions (Fall, Winter, or Spring) in the past two years. Other relevant experience will be considered, but you must contact school@neptunetheatre.com with a list of your experience and references.

13-18yrs "Climb It" Creation

July 27 - 31 & August 4 - 7 (9 days)

$475

(10am - 4pm)

We are in a time of change. In search for a new normal. Speaking out and fighting for human rights. Voices need to be heard. Changes need to be made. And theatre should be a part of that change. 

As announced in the Spring, Neptune will be creating a new play currently entitled "Climb It" to tour with our TourCo. This week-long intensive will allow us to explore the themes of the climbing journey in these changing times; climate change, the fight for equality and all voices being heard, navigating the highs and lows of being a teenager in these trying times. With a series of workshops and classes we will work individually and with others to find words, movements, scenes and songs that may inform this production.

We will culminate these two weeks with a mini-documentary on the creation of our new show. 

Be part of the first step in a new work. Perfect for those interested in theatre for social change or who strive to bring their own voice to theatre creation. All levels welcome. 

Students can choose to work as performers and/or writers and/or production and direction.
