BUDDING PERFORMERS
TAKE CENTER STAGE
AT MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE SUMMER CAMPS

March 17, 2010 (Jupiter) - School ends in June for Palm Beach County students, but that doesn't mean kids have to take a break from learning.

At the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA) Summer Camp, children can fill their weekdays with fun, challenging classes in acting, musical theater, dance and comedy.

"Summer Camp is always a grand time at COPA!" says Julie Rowe, COPA director of education.  "Students will have the opportunity to improve their acting, voice, and movement skills, learn to work together as a team, and become better leaders"

COPA's camps are available in one- and three-week sessions, making scheduling flexible for families planning out-of-town trips.

At the end of each three-week camp session, students in Junior and Senior Conservatory perform in fully staged productions of High School Musical (June 25-27) and Seussical, Jr. (July 30-31) on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's main stage. There will be professional sets and lighting, and direction by COPA's Broadway-caliber faculty.
