Historic Fayette Theater plans 2013 Drama Camp

— Historic Fayette Theater is gearing up for its 2013 Drama Camp. The theme of this year’s camp is “Young Actors’ Workshop” and Tana Higginbotham, a well-known local theater teacher, director, performer and theater supporter, will serve as director.

In addition to her vast knowledge of the theater arts, creative visions and structured learning pro-cesses, Higginbotham will also bring several talented assistants to enrich the campers’ stage experience.

This year’s camp will be based upon an Acting 101 premise and will include stage etiquette, stage direction, movement and blocking, projection and stage presence.

The camp will close Aug. 3 with a 7 p.m. performance called “HFT’s Children’s Variety Show.”

The dates and times for this year’s camp are July 29-Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for children 8 to 14 years old. Cost of the camp is $60 per child and includes one ticket per child for the performance.

The camp is limited to a maximum of 30 children to allow for each camper to receive quality instruction and attention. Spaces will be reserved on a first-come basis, and all reservations must be received and paid for by July 12. If spaces remain available after that date, it will be listed on the theater’s website and Facebook page or you can call the theater for information.

Registration forms are available at or can be picked up at the theater.
