    VALLEY CHRISTIAN THEATRE SUMMER THEATRE 2021
    IS READY TO LAUNCH!


    Since 2021 seems to be the year of change, this year's SUMMER THEATRE CAMP will look a little different. Join us for a three-week rotation camp, where you will hone your skills in performance, technical theatre, design for the stage, dance, movement, and more. Each week, your stable cohort will participate in a 5-day intensive training in one specific area of Theatre Arts. One week you might be learning how to build and paint a flat, while the next week you'll be rehearsing and performing a mini-show! This year's camp is not to be missed, and will give you great building blocks for your future at VCT.

    Note: In order to maintain all safety protocols, enrollment will be limited to 60 students, with no more than 20 students in a stable cohort for the duration of the camp. If all spots are full when you go to register, please contact Cathy McFall, cmcfall@vcs.net, to be placed on a waiting list. Depending on circumstances, we may open a second camp in the afternoon hours.

    VALLEY CHRISTIAN THEATRE SUMMER THEATRE 2021
    IS READY TO LAUNCH!


    Since 2021 seems to be the year of change, this year's SUMMER THEATRE CAMP will look a little different. Join us for a three-week rotation camp, where you will hone your skills in performance, technical theatre, design for the stage, dance, movement, and more. Each week, your stable cohort will participate in a 5-day intensive training in one specific area of Theatre Arts. One week you might be learning how to build and paint a flat, while the next week you'll be rehearsing and performing a mini-show! This year's camp is not to be missed, and will give you great building blocks for your future at VCT.

    Note: In order to maintain all safety protocols, enrollment will be limited to 60 students, with no more than 20 students in a stable cohort for the duration of the camp. If all spots are full when you go to register, please contact Cathy McFall, cmcfall@vcs.net, to be placed on a waiting list. Depending on circumstances, we may open a second camp in the afternoon hours.

    No audition necessary for participation.

    VALLEY CHRISTIAN THEATRE SUMMER THEATRE 2021

    Since 2021 seems to be the year of change, this year's SUMMER THEATRE CAMP will look a little different. Join us for a three-week rotation camp, where you will hone your skills in performance, technical theatre, design for the stage, dance, movement, and more. Each week, your stable cohort will participate in a 5-day intensive training in one specific area of Theatre Arts. One week you might be learning how to build and paint a flat, while the next week you'll be rehearsing and performing a mini-show! This year's camp is not to be missed, and will give you great building blocks for your future at VCT.

    Note: In order to maintain all safety protocols, enrollment will be limited to 60 students, with no more than 20 students in a stable cohort for the duration of the camp. If all spots are full when you go to register, please contact Cathy McFall, cmcfall@vcs.net, to be placed on a waiting list. Depending on circumstances, we may open a second camp in the afternoon hours.

    Theatre Camp

    Are you a-wishin' and a-hopin' and a-dreamin' for some in-person theatre in your life again? Drum roll please...
    VALLEY CHRISTIAN THEATRE SUMMER THEATRE 2021
    IS READY TO LAUNCH!


    Since 2021 seems to be the year of change, this year's SUMMER THEATRE CAMP will look a little different. Join us for a three-week rotation camp, where you will hone your skills in performance, technical theatre, design for the stage, dance, movement, and more. Each week, your stable cohort will participate in a 5-day intensive training in one specific area of Theatre Arts. One week you might be learning how to build and paint a flat, while the next week you'll be rehearsing and performing a mini-show! This year's camp is not to be missed, and will give you great building blocks for your future at VCT.

    Note: In order to maintain all safety protocols, enrollment will be limited to 60 students, with no more than 20 students in a stable cohort for the duration of the camp. If all spots are full when you go to register, please contact Cathy McFall, cmcfall@vcs.net, to be placed on a waiting list. Depending on circumstances, we may open a second camp in the afternoon hours.

    No audition necessary for participation.

    Theatre Camp

    Are you a-wishin' and a-hopin' and a-dreamin' for some in-person theatre in your life again? Drum roll please...
    VALLEY CHRISTIAN THEATRE SUMMER THEATRE 2021
    IS READY TO LAUNCH!


    Since 2021 seems to be the year of change, this year's SUMMER THEATRE CAMP will look a little different. Join us for a three-week rotation camp, where you will hone your skills in performance, technical theatre, design for the stage, dance, movement, and more. Each week, your stable cohort will participate in a 5-day intensive training in one specific area of Theatre Arts. One week you might be learning how to build and paint a flat, while the next week you'll be rehearsing and performing a mini-show! This year's camp is not to be missed, and will give you great building blocks for your future at VCT.

    Note: In order to maintain all safety protocols, enrollment will be limited to 60 students, with no more than 20 students in a stable cohort for the duration of the camp. If all spots are full when you go to register, please contact Cathy McFall, cmcfall@vcs.net, to be placed on a waiting list. Depending on circumstances, we may open a second camp in the afternoon hours.

    No audition necessary for participation.

    Highlands Ability Battery Feedback Sessions

    The Highlands Ability Battery is a series of 19 exercises that measure and define a person's natural abilities. This Battery can help promote self-understanding, build self-confidence, guide educational choices, optimize career options, and help students train themselves to talk to admissions officers and employment prospects. When students sign up, an access code will be emailed to them which they can use to take the test at home on their computer.

    Highlands Ability Battery Feedback Sessions

    The Highlands Ability Battery is a series of 19 exercises that measure and define a person's natural abilities. This Battery can help promote self-understanding, build self-confidence, guide educational choices, optimize career options, and help students train themselves to talk to admissions officers and employment prospects. When students sign up, an access code will be emailed to them which they can use to take the test at home on their computer. Once the Battery is completed, the student will receive a Feedback Session at VCHS where they will receive a report describing their results. Feedback sessions will be coordinated individually with Dr. Avilucea.
