(HAMMONTON, NJ) – Eagle Theatre Conservatory’s Summer Camp is back, bigger, and better than ever.
208 Vine Street, better known as Eagle Theatre, is home to many young performers throughout the summer months. Their days are spent making friends, having fun, and learning the ins-and-outs of showbiz from industry professionals. It is a little slice of performing arts utopia for budding stars, spanning from ages 8 - 17. However, as plans began to take shape for this summer’s camp, Director of Youth Education, Kimberly Suskind, had a new idea in mind.
“We are delighted to see students leave camp with a new found confidence. But, just imagine the transformational growth they’d experience if they entered camp with that confidence. We have our stars of tomorrow. Now, it’s time to develop our twinkling stars of tomorrow!” states Suskind.
It was with this thought in mind that Eagle Theatre Conservatory began to plot out a new wing for their Summer Camp. This summer Eagle Theatre Conservatory will proudly introduce Conservatory Jr., designed for ages 5 -7.
Producing Artistic Director Ted Wioncek III shares, "Eagle Theatre covers a great deal of ground. However, our Conservatory remains the foundation of all that we are. We're investing in our future artists, patrons, and philanthropists. We're nurturing what will someday be our local culture."
