Go ”down the rabbit hole” with the RSPA Theatre School’s Summer Camp which takes place next year in early January.

The Rising Stars Performing Arts have announced that registration is now open for the 2016 Summer Theatre Camp titled “Down the Rabbit Hole”, which is open to any student from any school, Grade 7 – 12, who love to act, sing and dance.
Gill Brunings, Director of the RSPA Theatre School comments: “Our last camp was a resounding success, each and every young performer forgot the words “I can’t” and believed in themselves and their ability to try! The face to face (not electronic) fellowship that developed over such a short space of time was divine to see. In seven days, all 22 campers went from complete strangers to a tightknit performance group with an incredibly strong bond – all I can say is, that’s the magic of theatre!”

The Camp objectives are to make sure every camper is made to feel special, that they extend their performance skills and leaves feeling accomplished. The aim is to ensure that each camper has fun in a safe, nurturing and supportive environment and develops new friendships in the process.

“From January 4 to 10 we will explore the world of devising drama and stage an original performance for parents and friends to enjoy on the final day, with the beautiful Drakensberg as our backdrop,” explains Brunings. “Vocal training and harmonies will be led by Sanele Sibiya, choreography and dance training is led by Nicole Theunissen and our acting coach is Mikhaila Wilson.”

The summer camp will take place at the Hella Hella Outdoor Centre from January 4 to 10.

The closing date for registration is November 30, 2015. Contact for more information or visit
