John McGrew here, with exciting news about the growth of our Acting Manitou community. Beginning this coming summer (2015) Acting Manitou will be expanding on our Music Camper Program! This past summer we had our first music camper, Griffin Strout who was featured in Godspell, and it was such a success we have decided to expand the program to even more campers!
The program will feature new and diverse music training & classes, composition of original music for our plays and, of course, camper music ensembles for our musicals. We welcome all musicians to our program: from piano players to drummers, song-writers to conductors, piccolo players to tuba players, beginners to advanced players! Love for music is the only pre-requisite! We are so excited to celebrate this fundamental element of the theatrical experience with you all.
Music campers may enroll to play their instruments at camp. This will be their most important function during productions, as they play a crucial role in contributing to the show. Either in the pit orchestra, onstage band or as a solo musician, music campers represent a new, unique and dynamic part of the Acting Manitou experience.
