Youth Workshops

Announcing Fun Summer Drama Camps for Kids in 2018!

Keep the Arcata Playhouse in mind with the summer holidays approaching, a workshop makes a great gift for the little ones!

We will offer three exciting workshops during the Summer 2018:

  • Puppet Camp, June 25 - 29, 2018
  • Pageant on the Plaza, July 9 - 21, 2018
  • Summer Youth Workshops from July 23 - 27, 2018

Puppet Camp (June 25-29)(for ages 6 - 14) consists of a puppet building laboratory during the morning session.  Campers will be guided through a brainstorming, planning, and building process by the teachers.  The lab focuses on building your own puppet characters and puppet stages.  Campers will work with a variety of materials to construct one to three different kids of puppets.  In the afternoon campers will write and create original puppet plays with the puppet characters they build in the morning.  They will perform their plays in their own puppet festival on the last day of camp.  Parent and the community will be invited!
Cost is $100 for a half day and $175 for whole day.   Liability formRegistration form

Pageant on the Plaza (July 9-21) is an exciting two-week adventure into outdoor performance and spectacle for kids ages 9 to 14. See the Pageant on the Plaza website.  The two-week workshop begins with a week of skill building during which classes are presented in storytelling, character development, construction of large puppets, music, movement and stilt walking. The second week is dedicated to applying those freshly minted skills to building and rehearsing an original production to be performed at the end of a Saturdays' Farmers Market on July 21rd. 
Cost is $400 ($350 before June 10) for full-time two week session.  Registration form  & Liability form

Summer Youth Workshops (July 23-27) are a collection of fun theater classes for kids ages 6 to 9. Classes are held Monday through Friday and end with a final presentation on the last day. The two classes offered are Creative Movement in the morning and Clown Town in the afternoon. For Creative Movement Children will dance, roll, wiggle, run, hop, skip and learn basic acrobatics and more in this active theatrical movement class. The teacher will work with recorded music and help the group create their own music to move to as an ensemble. Lots of energy required!  In Clown Town kids will develop their own hilarious clown characters that all live in a goofy town together and will have a comic clown adventure to save Clown Town.
Cost is $100 for one class or $175 for two.
