CCP announces 2013 Triple Threat summer campĀ 


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.
