Summer Camp

  • Welcome, MPCSD families, to our 8th annual summer drama program at Hillview! This year will be structured like last few years into two, two-week sessions, each with two productions: one JR musical open to incoming 6th-exiting 8th graders, and one KIDS musical for incoming 4th and 5th graders.

     

    Please register for one or more of the following programs.

     

    Donation: This camp is funded completely through parent donations and a small ticket price ($5) at the show. There is a requested donation of $425 per camper per 2-week session. Donations pay for the hourly wages of staff, set building supplies and more. Please make checks payable to MPCSD and bring to Mr. Hairston or the Hillview front office.

    **Students bring a lunch and snacks each day. No overly sweet or sugary snacks or drinks, please.

     

    Most of our time will be spent creating the productions, but we will also have fun with drama games and improvisation. Performers will rehearse their shows, and crew will build and paint sets, operate sound and light systems, and help with costumes and makeup. In addition, all will play drama, improvisation and role-playing games. See above for show dates.
