Your child will find creative expression and fun at the Gilmer Arts Summer Drama Camp, held at the George Link, Jr Gilmer Arts Playhouse in Downtown Ellijay, GA. Kelly Hornsby-Dyer and her team will once again encourage your child to express themselves through drama in this years production of "Willie Wonka" aka "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Children will be divided into three age groups with experienced teachers Kelly Dyer, Claudia Bradford, and Jess Eves and their assistants. There will be two casts so that there can be two performances allowing the children more opportunity to act. The students will build props, learn style and lines, decorate the set and develop costumes, all while having fun with other kids in the same adventure. Once applications are processed youth in the older group will be asked to come pick up a script the week before to read three times at home, helping them to get ahead of learning lines for the production. Lunches and a snack will be served daily. Two performances will be held on Saturday June 18th. One matinee and one in the evening. Camp will be June 13-17 9-3. Scholarships are available. Talk to the office if you need an application. 706.635.5605
Students of camp will be invited to audition for the summer production of "The King and I".
