CCT offers summer theater camps for kids

Registration is open for Children’s Community Theatre’s two summer camps, which will be held for the first time at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb.

CCT has a fun-filled summer planned with plenty of opportunities for children to sing, dance, perform, laugh and enjoy time with friends.

“Camp Legally Blonde” is for campers entering eighth grade in the fall to those who graduated high school in 2021. It will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Saturday, July 5-16, except on Saturday, July 10, which will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The camp will conclude with three performances of the full-length musical “Legally Blonde” at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, July 17, and 2 p.m. Sunday, July 18.

“Camp Seussical” is for campers entering first through seventh grade in the fall. Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, Aug. 2-13. Camp will conclude with two performances of the musical “Seussical Jr.” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 15.

Due to CCT’s concern for the health and well-being of campers, staff and community, camp and audience sizes will be limited in accordance with the state requirements based on the Egyptian Theatre’s capacity. Camp will be conducted following the guidelines set forth by the state and the CDC, which will include temperature checks, social distancing, face coverings, and will be adjusted for any changes set by the state.

Financial need scholarships are available, but limited. Email for an application. The scholarship submission deadline is June 15.
