Kidz Camp teaches acting, singing and dancing
Theatre has three camp scholarships
Spring is coming, and the
stage is calling.
The Coaster Theatre Kidz
Camp, where children aged
8 to 18 spend their spring
break playing theater games
and mounting a personalized
play, is open for registration.
From 10 a.m. through 4
p.m. March 23 through 27
thespians will learn the ba-
sics of acting, singing and
Their teamwork and
imaginative enterprise will
culminate in a Friday after-
noon performance of “Willy
Wonka’s Chocolate Facto-
But be warned: The kids
may very well kick Roald
Dahl’s original story to the
curb and devise their own
story featuring the same cast
of characters: Charlie Buck-
et, Veruca Salt, Augustus
Gloop, etc.
Though the kids may
register through March 23,
Lathrop strongly recom-
mends preregistration.
The cost per camper is
$115. “If you break that
down, that’s pretty inexpen-
sive childcare,” Lathrop said.
Thanks to funding from
the Clatsop County Cultural
Coalition, the Coaster is of-
fering scholarships to three
campers, who will attend the
class for free.
Lathrop is asking the
children who are interested
to write a short paragraph
(preferably in the child’s
own handwriting) on why
he or she wants to attend the
Kidz Camp and submit it to
the Coaster.
Scholarship paragraphs
are due by March 6 and
should be turned in before
the parent formally registers
the child for the camp.
A couple of Coaster The-
atre board members or staff
members will read through
the paragraphs and col-
lectively decide who will
receive the scholarships.
nancial need, passion for the-
ater or other criteria, Lathrop

Participants in the Coaster
Theater’s Kidzcamp in 2013
performed “Stone Soup” at the
end of the spring break week.
