To improve and enhance the quality of educational theatre in the state of Texas through advanced and accelerated classes in acting, voice and movement, stagecraft, and production concepts.
Tal Lostracco’s Summer Theatre Camp at Baylor UniversityÂ is a 2 week intensive theatre camp for high school students to strengthen their skills relating to theatre, acting, and technical theatre.
Students will stay on campus in dorms and will be cast in one of the productions offered.Â Students who choose the acting route are cast in a model UIL One-Act play by one of the state’s leading directors. They will keep a regimented schedule: morning classes including acting, dance and movement, and voice. Afternoons are geared to technical rehearsals and actual rehearsals of the shows. Students who choose to work with the technical aspects of theatre will work with the design and technical staff in learning various skills related to technical theatre including design and production.
The not-for-profit program is guided by a collective of artists and educators that have been a part of the camp since its inception in 2001.
