Adelaide's youth put on another great show
Traditionally Music Theatre Camp, established by Pelican Productions, brings together talented young people between 8-19 years to create an energetic theatre show. This year, however, the show included a few cast members who were a mere 7 years old, including Janie Blacker who sure put on a performance in the role of Oliver!
Running over 2 weeks, the camp provides a range of vocal tutors and choreographers to help coach young people to present their best theatre show. The tutors help the young people develop performance skills such as singing, dancing and acting as well as important life skills such as teamwork and respect.
Each year the show is based around a range of performances from Broadway and West End, this year delivering "Everlasting". The show provided acts from a range of different musicals including Finding Nemo, Hamilton, Tuck Everlasting, Oliver, Legally Blonde, Shrek, Beauty and the Beast and the much-loved Grease.
This was my second year attending a Music Theatre Camp show and I enjoyed just as much the first time. Once again it was evident that the cast members had received fantastic mentoring to bring out their big personalities and showcase their talents in acting, singing and dancing.
The show captured the whole audience, with humour and captivating music, which was evident with the roars of laughter and clapping along throughout.
If you have children interested in theatre, this is definitely the camp for them. Prices for the two weeks range from $540-$580 with payment plan options available. It is evident that the camp provides a sense of community with many members opting to be involved year after year.
