Got kids with the acting bug or who want to learn how to write a song or record their own music? You can send them to the historic Bijou Theatre for an offering of summer camps, presented by Mast General Store. Starting Monday, June 25 and running through Friday, August 10, the Bijou’s acting and music camps give kids a chance to learn the important life skills that acting and music so richly provide. Plus they will have the unique experience of doing so in a historical landmark and one of the South’s finest performance venues. The Bijou Theatre acting camps offer improvisational games to help with voice, movement and imagination; kids also get to write, act and direct their own shows. On the final day of the camp, students perform a play on the US Cellular Stage at the Bijou Theatre. The music camps give them the experience of writing their own songs and learning to record with instruments they already know how to play.Bijou board member Jay Apking says, “These camps bring families back to the theater. And at the price we are offering for five, 6-hour days of camp, you can't beat the experience.” For a schedule and to fill out the camp application visit http://www.knoxbijou.com/calendar-and-tickets/childrens-summer-camps. Class size is limited, so act now – then your kids can, too.
