CCP announces 2013 Triple Threat summer camp 

CROSSVILLE — Children ages 5 and up are invited to participate in a week long theatre camp that has become a tradition at the Cumberland County Playhouse. Playhouse professionals will teach acting, singing and dancing in a fun-filled setting which has proved to be an enriching and exciting atmosphere. A “triple threat performer” is someone who acts well, sings well and dances well. For more than 40 years, the Playhouse has been renowned for cultivating young performers and raising them to such a high level that they’re able to perform alongside seasoned professionals. Classes are about more than just performing. Students will have fun, receive world-class instruction and learn lifetime lessons in discipline, confidence and collaboration.

Registration day is May 28 from 9 to 11 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. in the CCP lobby and students will be accepted until the day camp begins. A minimum $50 non-refundable deposit is required (to be applied to camp fees). The 2013-'14 Playhouse Performance Education season will begin in September shortly after Labor Day and continue through late April-early May. Finalized schedules will be published later this month.

To receive more information, register for Summer Triple Threat Camp June 17-21 (sponsored by Dave Kirk Automotive) or sign up for the 2013-14 training programs, please call Meka Doxtator Barrier at 931.484.4324, or email mdoxtator@ccplayhouse.com.

Currently at the Playhouse: Dolly Parton’s hilarious 9 TO 5 – The Musical through July 14 (rated PG, sponsored by The Conference Center at Fairfield Glade). Upcoming shows include: Smoke on the Mountain (rated G, sponsored by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store) May 24 through August 2; and the beautiful, classic musical, The King and I, starring International and Broadway star Herman Sebek, opens June 14 and runs through August 30 (rated G, sponsored by Holiday Inn Express/Comfort Suites/Hampton Inn).

For tickets and information call 931.484.5000 or visit www.ccplayhouse.com. All CCP productions are made possible through sponsor support, with additional support provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
