Musical Theatre: Selections from Seussical - 7/22-7/26
Times: 9am-3pm (with Free Extended Care: Before Care starts at 7:30am; After Care runs until 5:30pm)
"Oh, The Thinks You Can Think" in this Seuss-tastic week of camp! Exploring the songs and characters of Seussical the Musical, students will prove "It's Possible" to work as an ensemble, bringing Seuss-ian favorites from the page to the stage, and building the essential skills to be emerging musical theatre stars! Join The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters this week as students prepare a selection of songs from Seussical the Musical...and grown-ups, you'll see just "How Lucky You Are" when these students perform "All For You" on Friday!
After this camp, they will definitely be impressed with their new skills and ask, “What else can I do?!” Thankfully, there are three Musical Theatre camps for this age group at NCT this summer.
This camp will culminate in a performance, or “sharing” on Friday afternoon in our main auditorium. Students will present 1-3 songs from Seussical the Musical.
Musical Theatre Classes at this Age Range work on:
• Understanding basic movement to music
• Being introduced to proper breath control while singing
• Introductions to musical structure and melody
• Maintaining vocal volume while moving
• Learning stage directions and theatre vocabulary
• Understanding spacing (finding their window) during choreographed numbers
• Using loud, clear voices
• Moving as a specific character
• Filling a song with clear and distinct character choices
• Working as an ensemble
• Exercising discipline as they work toward the goal of the show
• Having an absolute blast
NCT’s focus is always the healthy development of young people. We believe that the skills that students learn while participating in the process of theatre will serve them in their everyday lives as well as provide a foundation if they choose to continue to more advanced work (which we hope they do!).

NCT offers free extended care for our families. Before Care opens at 7:30 am and After Care closes at 5:30 pm. You can add this service during registration or on a day-to-day basis during the camp week. Extended care consists of supervised unstructured free time. Students are welcome to bring a book or electronic device (that NCT is not responsible for). Additionally, NCT provides coloring sheets, board games, marble towers, etc for students who are interested. Also, during after care, we will also have a daily option of a G or PG-rated children’s movie playing as an activity choice.
