CCUSD offering theatrical enrichment class, June 2-13

Staff Report~ 5/14/2014

C. Nicholas Johnson and his artistic team are continuing their 25-year theater tradition with this summer’s student production. North valley kids, ages grade 4-12, can sign up for this two-week enrichment residency that features the Bonanza Educational staff that works with students to create LEGO® animated videos. The theme will be ‘A Brave New World.’
This summer theater enrichment class fills up quickly, so parents are encouraged to sign their children up as soon as possible. The cost for the two-week camp is $300, which includes all needed theater items.
During the first week, students will work with artist Renee Swan and dance instructor Elizabeth Lincoln to create costumes, props, sets, and the animated LEGO® component, as well as develop their performance skills. The second week will focus on the actual stage production including choreography, movement, and the incorporation of the LEGO® video into the final performance. This process will require the students to hone their mime skills, while challenging them to portray emotion and character onstage.
The two-week residency, June 2-13, will culminate in two public multi-media performances of C. Nicholas Johnson’s ‘A Brave New World’ on Saturday, June 14 on the Main Stage of the Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center.
The program, offered by Education and Community Services of Cave Creek Unified School District, is open to all students, public, private, charter or homeschooled, grades four through twelve. For more information, visit or call (480) 575-2440.
