Anthony Bean Community Theater is entering its second session for the summer theater program for youth ages 8 to 17. The last four weeks of the camp include drama classes / workshops, lectures and guest performances.
The Anthony Bean Community Theater Summer Camp is currently hosted at the Southern University College Center in New Orleans, located at 6400 Press Drive. The next session of the summer theater program runs from July 10 to August 6, and camp hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The program will end with a performance of the musical piece “‘Old Skool”. Summer production takes place on the weekends of July 28-30 and August 4-6.
The camp, a collaborative effort with the New Orleans Department of Recreation, was founded to help children ages 8 to 17 expand their cultural boundaries and perspectives. Students spend the day in the theater doing activities designed to stimulate creativity in a fun and safe environment. The program helps build confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, positive self-expression, and creative thinking.
