Are you a rebel, princess, outcast, brain or jock? Act in an updated and family friendly adaptation of “The Breakfast Club” that encompasses all of the charm of John Hughes’s beloved 1985 film. The members of the breakfast club suffer through a Saturday detention under an aggressive principal and end up discovering something about each other and themselves.

The basics of acting such as hitting a mark, enunciation and voice projection as well as more advanced acting principles such as developing a character, developing a relationship and creating real behavior are explored.

Rehearsals and filming are done on a set, in costume with props, camera, microphones, and lights. There will be multiple casts and all students will shoot daily, which will allow everyone to have ample screen time.

If a student misses any classes, Jeremy will do his best to cover the scenes that are missed. The final product is screened at Gorton. The focus of the class is on learning about acting, learning life skills and having fun. Totally!

This camp runs Monday, July 18 – Friday, July 22, 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Ages: 9 – 13 Years Old
