An unforgettable summer music theater experience!
Have a school-aged child or grandchild? Or know someone who might be interested? The Bridges Academy of Fine Arts at St. Luke's is enrolling now for the annual Jerry Eckles Music Theater Camp, where we will present this one-hour "Junior" version of the hit musical Honk! This delightful and award-winning adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's ''The Ugly Duckling'' is a heartwarming celebration of what makes us special. The "Jr" series of musicals feature condensed versions of shows to allow for a shorter production time.
Camp will run Monday through Friday over two weeks — June 18-29 — from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Enrollment is open for students entering grade 2 through graduating seniors. Plenty of roles, lots of great chorus numbers, and a fun opportunity for your child to develop/expand their skills regardless of prior experience.
Tuition is $275, with a 10% discount for each additional sibling you enroll. All camp activities will take place in the Rotunda Theater located within the security of our campus at St. Luke's United Methodist Church at 3471 Westheimer
Our camp director this year is Harold Jay Trotter, an actor, playwright, musician, and educator — he teaches first grade at Beta Academy. He recently starred as Hoke Colburn in the Tapestry Players production of Driving Miss Daisy at St. Luke's this past February and is currently touring the production of his play Ain't Always Been Saved.
We'll feature TWO performances on Friday, June 29 at 1:15 and 4 p.m. in the Rotunda Theater. Free admission.
