Full Description

In place of our traditional summer camp, we have developed a unique summer experience called Creative Connectivity for Kids that allows students to explore various aspects of theatre and entertainment through virtual learning. With a goal of broadening our own tools as an institution, we have partnered with Magic Box Productions of New York to create a virtual summer camp that brings entertainment and technology together. Often the concepts of “theatre” are limited to actors, directors, set, and costumes. This is the ideal opportunity to broaden the understanding of theatre by exploring processes that we often do not see once the curtain goes up. 

Utilizing accessible and user-friendly virtual platforms, Theatre Jacksonville and Magic Box Productions will offer four unique one week camp sessions from 8:55am to 2pm, each targeting a specific behind-the-scenes or, as we are calling it, “between the lines” genre of technology/entertainment. 

Cross-Country Collaboration is a necessary term in theatre – it is a true team effort. Our partnership with Magic Box Productions allows for dynamic cross-country collaboration, with exposure to new ideas from guest teachers and artists. It also provides the opportunity to broaden student participation to those living outside of the Jacksonville area. We hope to have a cross-country group of participants, so spread the word about Creative Connectivity to your friends and relatives everywhere!

Ages 7 - 14. We have partnered with Magic Box Productions of New York to create a virtual summer camp that brings entertainment and technology together. This is the ideal opportunity to broaden the understanding of theatre by exploring processes that we often do not see once the curtain goes up. Theatre Jacksonville and Magic Box Productions will offer four unique one week camp sessions, each targeting a specific behind-the-scenes genre of technology/entertainment. We will be surveying families to understand what devices each student has access to, and this information will allow us to tailor the programming to those specific devices.
