The trumpets blare, and with them come swashbuckling jesters, dancing peas, a rambunctious royal posse and a zany collection of other delightful kingdom characters! Everyone's at odds when the time comes for the comic-book-loving Prince to find the right girl amongst a gaggle of silly princesses. Come be part of the story as we explore the world of "Peas & Harmony," a quirky retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Princess & the Pea," in which showing respect might just pave the road to happily ever after!
Compass Creative Dramatics Summer Theatre Camp is a week-long experience for students 1st - 12th grade. Our campers come together to have a blast learning about the art of theatre as they stretch their creativity and bravery muscles through rehearsals for "Peas & Harmony" and workshops in topics such as improv, stage combat, and audition skills.
Taught by Chicago theatre professionals, CCD Summer Camp is an opportunity for kids to perform with actors from the professional community: Two of our actor/educators perform alongside the student actors, leading by example, and sharing the experience of live performance. They're right there on stage offering support and helping your child shine.
We provide all of the theatrical touches to complete the production - professionally designed and produced music, costumes, props, and sets - all to make this an unforgettable experience! Our programming encourages imagination and critical thinking, providing an opportunity for kids to be part of a collaborative artistic process that encourages teamwork - while still inspiring students to take ownership of and pride in their unique ideas and capabilities.
CCD's Summer Camp is an affordable full-day activity - With a daily schedule from 9-3, our summer camp averages $7 an hour!
