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
CCD's Summer Camp is an affordable full-day activity - With a
daily schedule from 9-3, our summer camp averages $7 an hour!
"I'd tell my friends to come here and learn from you, because
you guys are just the best!"
