Caitlin Quinn and The Imaginaries Summer Theatre Camps will be returning this summer during the weeks of
June 17th-21st and June 24th-28th!
Throughout the week, students will have the amazing opportunity to imagine, create, build, produce, and perform their very own play from start to finish.
We will be spending the week playing dress-up, creating stories, designing sets, learning to build and paint backdrops, using power tools and producing our very own production to be performed at the end of the week.! Students will learn about storytelling and improvisation, as well as safe practices around building and painting sets, and will gain skills in self-confidence, cooperation, collaboration, and imagination.
Who: All students ages 5-13. 25 campers MAX - reserve your spots today!
What: The Imaginaries drama camps offer creative play at its best! Together, students will learn about storytelling and improvisation; brainstorm and write an original play; collaborate and create all necessary props, set pieces and costumes for our unique production; and, finally, rehearse and perform for an audience at the end of the week. Along the way there will be LOTS of drama games, writing prompts, art projects, and flexibility to accommodate and encourage personal interests.

Using Theatre to teach self-expression and collaboration
The Imaginaries is the umbrella organization that includes Caitlin's many theatrical ventures. From running summer drama camps to creating and producing original musicals, Caitlin loves introducing students to theatre and using drama to encourage collaboration, creativity, and self-expression. Theater presents young people with a chance to not only discover their individual gifts, but also to work as an ensemble, explore literature and history, and creatively imagine a brighter future. Drama students are challenged to take risks, use their imaginations, and empathize with the larger world as they devise new pieces of theater.
The Imaginaries original musicals are a joint effort between motivated drama students and professional artists. With the help of a composer and a script writer, students can bring their wildest dreams to life, envisioning colorful characters and contributing to lyrics, dialogue, and story lines. By combining meaningful narratives with catchy songs, these original musicals allow students to sing, dance, and act their hears out while delivering affirmational and empowering messages.
Once Upon a Town
The children of the most beloved fairy tale characters band together to shake off their parents' legacies and expectations. Together they find their own individual identities and join forces to defeat evil.
Hip hop health
In this high-energy musical, the audience is invited to join the protagonist on a journey to personal health as she spends the day watching TV and channel surfing her way to a thorough understanding of healthy living.
Inspired by the students' real life ancestors, Seven Generations helps performers and audience members connect with their forefathers and foremothers, consider their own legacies, and discover thoughtful and beneficial ways to provide for the generations to come.
