Summer Theatre Camp

Mark your calendar: July 24th -28th, 2017 is this year's summer camp! 

Camp Seats Flier

The camp will be held July 24-28.
8:00 am to 12:00 pm in the PHS Auditorium

This year we have shifted our focus from musical theatre to straight plays. Each student will be assigned a role in a 10 minute play which will be performed for parents on the last day of camp. There will also be an opportunity for students who have an interest in technical theatre to explore their interest. 

The payment is $140 if paid by June 2. We accept cash or checks made payable to ECBC/credit and debit available through online link here
If mailing, send to 301 Eagle Dr. Prosper, TX 75078 ATTN. Michael Stephens.
We also accept walk-ins. Student and parents may come the morning of July 24 and pay a walk-in fee of $160.

There will be a showcase on Friday, July 28 at noon. Doors will open for seating at 11:30AM. Attendance to this performance is free. Parents, family members, and friends are encouraged to attend and may photograph and/ or video the performance. 

During the Friday performance, we encourage the children to bring costumes from home. Costume information will be provided on the first day of camp. Each group of students will perform a 10 minute play on the last day of camp.
Snacks and water will be provided for the students at camp daily. We will allow students to bring their own snacks, but we ask that you avoid sending peanut snacks due to allergies of others. If you would like to donate snacks, please contact us.

Please email Michael Stephens with questions.
