Rogersville Arts Council is proud to announce its second one-week day camp for students who have just finished grades K-8. Last year, students from Hawkins County charmed audiences with a wide range of songs and scenes from Disney. This year, students have the opportunity to learn and perform classic songs from the American musical theatre. Students will learn songs from shows such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Annie, Get Your Gun, The Sound of Music, The Music Man, and Bye, Bye, Birdie. The camp will also feature song, dance, and scene work from the timeless musical Annie, including the songs “Hard Knock Life,” “Maybe,” “Tomorrow,” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”
The Broadway Show Choir Camp will be held at Cherokee High School. It will take place Monday through Friday, June 18-22, from 10 AM to 3 PM. Campers will be required to bring a bag lunch each day. Performances will be held Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 6 PM, and Sunday, June 24, at 3 PM, in the CHS Little Theatre. Tickets will be available online or at the door for $7. All proceeds will go toward arts programs and education for citizens of Rogersville and Hawkins County.
The camp will be directed by RAC Board member Amanda Campbell, who has served as actor, music director, and/or director for several shows with the RAC, and Encore Theatrical Company in Morristown. She has also directed all of RAC’s youth drama productions since 2012, including The Little Mermaid Jr., Annie Jr., Sleeping Beauty Kids, Cinderella Kids, and Honk Jr. The camp will be co-directed and choreographed by Board member Anna Campbell, actor, choreographer, dancer, and dance instructor whose work includes Encore Theatrical Company, RAC with youth drama productions, and teaching multiple genres at Studio 180 Dance in Morristown.
