My Summer Project is a micro-theater summer camp program for rising middle school students. Project campers create and perform an original theater production during a two week seminar in maker learning, arts production, and creating writing.
Our program is designed and directed in partnership with Ping Chong and Company. PC+C is a world-renowned theater company honored by President Barack Obama with a National Medal for the Arts in 2014. For the last 15 years, PC+C has led Secret Histories, a dynamic in-school theater program for middle school and high school students.
My Summer Project will challenge students to compose, act, and produce a professional theater program. Each day, campers will learn and practice new skills towards their final production. They will learn to code, construct, and engineer the original performance from professional experts in theater, dramatic writing, and digital production.
