Samford University Theatre will hold a summer theatre camp for children ages 4 to 12 during the week of June 5-9.

Campers will explore classic tales and invent new ones based on their own experiences. They will engage in all aspects of theatre production, including script writing, costuming, set designing and performing.

Their knowledge of math, science, grammar and social studies will be put to work in a creative, supportive atmosphere led by Samford theatre faculty and students.

Hours and tuition are 9-11 a.m. and $85 for four-year-olds; and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and $185 for other ages.

Each child will receive a camp tee shirt and stage make-up kit. A mid-morning snack and bottled water will be provided.
