For the past four summers, St. Theresa School in New Cumberland has offered a musical theater camp for elementary students. The several-week program is hosted at Trinity High School in Camp Hill, where the camp attendees are treated to wonderful production quality sound and lighting systems to enhance the musical production. This year’s chosen production was The Lion King, mirroring Disney’s summer blockbuster release in theaters.
The camp is run by BJ Meagher, the Director of Bands at Trinity, who, along with several assistants, help the attendees with singing, acting, choreography and set creation. The costumes and sets are fashioned out of basic items transformed into striking props.
More than 25 young people attended the camp and performed a striking and beautifully performed rendition of the famous African story to culminate the drama learning experience. To learn more about the camp, contact Meagher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
