Special to The PREVIEW

Registration is now open for Thingamajig Theatre Company’s children’s summer camp.

The Whatchamawhozit’s Summer Camp runs July 1-July 18, Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., with a performance of the Disney musical “Aristocats” on July 20.

Camp is run by Laura Moore, who has years of experience running the children’s theatre program at the Backstage Theatre in Breckenridge,  being the educational director for the Lake Dillon Theatre Summer Camp, as well as performing in and directing numerous professional productions, including the nationally renowned Arvada Center Children’s Theatre program.

Camp is taught by the professional singers, actors and dancers in Pagosa Springs for Thingamajig’s summer season.

This is a wonderful summer activity for kids that strengthens their confidence, expands their horizons, teaches them the crafts of theatre, exposes them to professionals in the field and is simply a rambunctious, fabulous summertime activity.

The summer camp is a bargain with early registration at only $300 for  the full three weeks, or $150 for the first week.  Latecomers can register after June 15 for $350.

The class is open to kids 7-12 years of age.  Registration forms can be found on the Center for the Arts website: under the tab “Whatchamawhozits.”

You can drop off registration forms at the Center for the Arts at 2313 Eagle Drive or put them in the mail to the same address.

Camp usually fills up quickly, so be sure to register early.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child with a scholarship, call Executive Director Laura Moore at 507-0408.
