Do you have a flair for the dramatic? Here’s a chance to take a week and enhance your skills in theater. This course will give the young actor the opportunity to develop their skills through theater games, role-playing, improvisation, movement, and music. Audition techniques and tips will also be addressed. Students are encouraged to bring any sheet music they are interested in performing, but there will be music and materials available for everyone. The week will culminate in a cabaret style master class. Prior acting and singing experience is welcome, but not required.

Everyday Science – For students in grades 3 to 12
July 12 to 15, Aug. 2 to 6 and Aug. 9 to 13
Explore the biodiversity of the MCAT campus and learn more about the many living things in the wooded areas and grassy areas. Daily walks, rain or shine, will be taken to observe trees and birds on the MCAT campus with notebooks and recording devices in hand (cameras and cell phones likely). Apps like Merlin Bird ID and Nature ID can identify plants and animals through questioning. Associated reading, writing, art and math skills will be used in individual and group projects. Many walkways are handicapped accessible, but rougher trail is most likely with the larger group. Cell phones may be needed for using apps, support from the school – ideally access to computers for the students – will heighten technology, supplies fee could cover paper, pencils, notebooks, paint, pencils, markers; bring own food
