Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever
Dates April 6 – 10 | Program Length One Week
Time See below | Ages 8 – 12 | Tuition $300
Location Online | Financial Aid Available

Ages 8 – 12 will have camp from 1 pm – 4:30 pm CST with the final show at 4:30 pm on Friday, April 10.

Using the frameworks of legends and fairy tales, your child will learn the basics of acting, songwriting, singing, dance choreography, collaborative story development, scene and prop construction, and gain new, specialized skills as they work together to create an original story all while being in the comfort of your own home.

Camp will be held remotely. All you need is a smart device with the Zoom Application downloaded, your imagination, and simple easily found craft materials from around your house. 

Camp days will be a mix of online teacher instruction and offline work to get the creativity flowing and everyone out from in front of the screen.

So come make new friends and create a remote show in a cabin far, far away. At the end of the week, campers will perform their own new story each from their home. The performance will be recorded by CCT and sent to your family for you to share and keep the memories of the most unique camp you have ever attended. 

All experience levels welcome.

Families will receive instructions on how to log in for classes following sign up. Please contact Dexter Ellis at dexter@chicagochildrenstheatre.org with any questions you may have.

Don’t have time to be a part of the online show? Create your own at home with our DIY Cabin Fever Show. Each day, from April 6-10, you will receive short videos and written instructions on how to write your script and complete the craft for the day. At the end of the week, perform your show with family members at home! 

Ages 5– 12 | Cost $100

We believe every child should have access to our programming regardless of financial position. We make every effort to provide scholarships for children and families with demonstrated need. 

Inclusion and access are core values at CCT. We believe, and research supports, that access to high-quality theatre arts learning experiences is essential to enhance individual development and improved functioning in school, work, and community settings. We know exposure to the theatre can increase a child’s capacity for empathy, ultimately cultivating a more accepting society. 

Annually, 1 in 5 youth at CCT will receive financial assistance to participate in this game-changing programming. If you would like to add your name to our list of THEATRE EDUCATION ACCESS supporters, or if you would like more information on our financial assistance program, contact us today! 

Thanks to the generosity of the Susan M. Venturi Fund in memory of James and Roslyn Marks, financial assistance is available for our education programs.
