Noir Camp – The Task (ages 13+): June 20-July 9: This summer, join us for a production that asks… Where have Roman gods gone? Once so powerful, now they seem like just another number on somebody’s speed dial. It’s all about change – and there’s one smart cookie named Ovid that wrote the book on that subject.The sundial is ticking… You say B.C.; I say A.D. Either way – it’s time to change the Millennium. That’s quite a job. You might even call it…The Task.
Folk Tale Camp (ages 8-11): July 18-July 29: Folk Tale camps give Lumina’s youngest actors a chance to explore archetypal characters and hilarious and exciting stories from around the world. These two-week camps culminate in a special outdoor performance of an original script based on a folk tale.
Quest Camp – The Hollywood Bug! (ages 12+): July 18-August 6: This summer, travel back to the late 1940s, where aspiring actresses are hoping to find television success at Glorious Studios, Hollywood. Sandy Shore comes from the small town of Short Pump, Nebraska hoping for her big break, but instead gets tangled up in an enchanting mystery surrounding a lost gem.
