EXPLORE THE WORLD OF THEATRE SUMMER CAMP
JULY 22 -26, 2019
This summer, kids ages 4 – 12 can join us for summer camp, Playhouse-style!
During the week, we will explore yoga, movement, and theatre games in a playful nurturing way. Each day we will spend time outside and inside creating with our hands, our bodies, and our hearts.
No theatre experience is necessary.
Our week will culminate in students creating their own take home yoga deck and arts and crafts that will be used as props and set pieces in our final end-of-week show and tell.
Camp hours are from 10 am – 3 pm with after care available from 8 am – 5 pm.
Camp fee: $250
Before and aftercare: $50

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
NIKKI WEAVER – Born in Los Angeles and raised in Sydney, Australia, Nikki moved back to the U.S. in 2005 after graduating from The Australian Academy of Dramatic Arts with a BFA in Acting. Since 2005, Nikki has created many projects, some of which include: a yoga program for 4-12 year olds, acting classes for 4-18 year olds, toured as Madame Curie in a solo show for a full year, raised over $3k to help families suffering from the Sandy Hook shooting, led international wellness retreats, and acted on stages in the U.S and in Australia. Nikki is an innovative creator and passionate communicator driven by a desire to understand other points of view. She brings a deep sense of listening, curiosity and an open heart to the team. A co-founder of Portland Playhouse, Nikki leads our extensive education programs – while standing on her head, running to find her kids and seeing as much theatre as possible. MFA: George Washington University.
CORINNE GAUCHER was born and raised on the New England coast and quickly fell in love with the power of theatre and entwining it with education. Grateful for her own experiences making theatre as a child, she co-founded the Summer On Stage Program at the historic Garde Arts Center in Southeastern Connecticut which continues annually to this day. She received her BA in Theatre from UNC Charlotte in North Carolina where she was an actor, director, producer, and dabbled in education outreach. After graduating, Corinne moved to Portland to be a part of the 2014-2015 Apprenticeship Company and knew she had found her creative home. In addition to being an actor around town and making her own work, she can often be found singing karaoke, and making friends with neighborhood cats.
