In the Lab Theater's Total Theater Experience camp, kids 8 through 15 will learn all the elements necessary to create a show, including costume design, movement, voice, acting, lighting design, and more. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily during Spring Break, March 17-21.

Campers may be dropped off as early as 8:30 a.m., but must be picked up by 4 p.m. "Our camp instructor is Lee County theater teacher Carmen Crussard, who is also Lab Theater's Shakespeare teacher," notes Lab Theater Artistic Director Annette Trossbach.

Carmen Crussard has been acting, directing, writing, and teaching for many years. Carmen co-wrote and directed Naked with her theater company, City Scenes. She was also honored with the critic’s choice award at the Lab Theater's 24-hour Playwriting Project.

Tuition is $125 per camper for the week. Discounts available for multiple children. For more information or to make reservations for your child, please call 239-218-0481.
