Alberta Theatre Projects launches Play Dates online day camps

For Immediate Release

CALGARY, October 5, 2020 – Alberta Theatre Projects is excited to introduce Alberta Theatre Projects Play Dates – a series of online digital day camps taking place on professional development days this school year. Alberta Theatre Projects is excited to translate its popular day camp offerings to the online world.

Each day camp focuses on a different theme of theatre performance and creation. Camps are designed to help students hone their creative skills through fun, engaging activities. The day before each camp, students will receive a package of exciting surprise supplies, which reveal the camp’s theme and will be used throughout the day’s activities.

These full-day digital day camps consist of a combination of both active instructional time and independent activities. Throughout the day, the camp alternates between live instructor-led programming and independent activities during which time the students will work on their own before sharing with the rest of the participants.

Camps take place from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during non-instruction days in the Calgary Board of Education’s school calendar. Kids age 9 to 12 years old are welcome with no prior theatre experience needed.

Play Dates will take place on October 9, October 30, November 20, December 4, January 29, March 12, and May 21, for a registration fee of $44, with a 20% discount for registrations in all 7 sessions.
