Registration open for Masquers summer camp

Print Article

SOAP LAKE — Registration is open for a mid-July drama camp sponsored by the Masquers Theater company. The Youth Theatre Program will be the week of July 15, with a performance of “Adventures of a Comic Book Artist” on July 20.

The camp is open to 35 children, 8 to 15 years of age, according to a Masquers press release. The camp “focuses on exposing children to acting, singing (and) dance.” Clifford Bresee is the director.

Rehearsals are from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday of camp week, with the performance at 2 p.m. Saturday at the theater, 322 E. Main Ave.

“Adventures of a Comic Book Artist” tells the story of Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz and his encounter with magic and superheroes. Stanley really, really wants to be a comic book artist, but working as a janitor is as close as he’s got. But the company isn’t doing so well, and Stanley’s boss, D.C. Wonderman, has ordered a set of magic pens designed to bring the characters drawn with them to life.

But Stanley ends up with the pens and his characters – Star Guy the egotist, Wombat Woman, Triple Time and Blossom the environmental advocate – are the ones enlivened by the magic. Stanley and his creations must go up against the evil Dr. Shock Clock, who’s looking to take over New York.

Cost is $75 for the first child, $60 for each additional child, with a limit of three per family. Parents can register online at www.masquers.com, or by contacting Heather Rhoades, 509-717-2060, or masquers.heather@gmail.com.

Cheryl Schweizer can be reached via email at education@columbiabasinherald.com.
