ARVADA, CO – The Arvada Center’s Intermediate Drama Camp participants will present scenes from La Commedia del Arte
as well as other comedic scenes on Monday, Aug. 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the Arvada Center’s indoor theater.
Through the performance of La Commedia del Arte, the Intermediate Drama Camp students explore the history of improvisational theater by “traveling” back to early 16th century Italy where this type of slapstick comedy began. The laughter will continue when the students perform modern comedic scenes, such as Abbott and Costello, to demonstrate the importance of comedy throughout time.
Back for its fifth year, the Intermediate Drama Camp is especially designed for 11- to 15-year-olds who want to fully explore the theatrical experience. Through hard work and commitment, students improve in the areas of scene work, improvisation, mime and audition techniques under the direction of Shelly Bordas and Kelly Lardie.
The Arvada Center’s drama camp performances are a perfect way for children and adults to enjoy inexpensive and entertaining theater.
Drama camp performances are open to the public for an admission fee of only $1. Tickets can be purchased at the door the evening of the performance. Attending a performance or enrolling a child in acting classes is a wonderful way for parents to introduce their children to the world of performing arts.
