Anthony Bean Community Theater offers second summer camp session
The Anthony Bean Community Theater is beginning its second session for the Summer Theater Program for youth aged 8 to 17. The camp’s final four weeks include acting classes/workshops, guest lectures, and guest performances.
The Anthony Bean Community Theater Summer Camp is currently housed at the University Center at Southern University at New Orleans, located on 6400 Press Drive. The summer theatre program’s next session runs from July 10 to August 6, and camp hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday to Friday. The program will finish with a performance of the musical play “‘Old Skool”. The summer production takes place on the weekends of July 28-30 and August 4-6.
The camp, a collaborative effort with the New Orleans Recreation Department, was founded to help children 8-17 years old expand their cultural boundaries and outlook. Students spend the day at the theatre doing activities designed to stimulate creativity in a fun and safe environment. The program aids in building confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, positive self-expression and creative thinking.
