July 22nd - 27th

We are pleased to announce exciting plans for summer camp this year! Along with our well-loved and totally fun week of Musical Theater Camp that culminates in a musical production at the end of the week, we have added a new option for our growing pre-teen and teen bunch of actors. Drama Camp, for students in 7th grade through 12th grade, will focus on further developing acting skills, and this camp will culminate in the performance of a one-act play. Both camps are happening the week of July 22nd - 27th and offer public performances on Friday, July 26th and Saturday, July 27th.

Meet the Summer 2019 Camp Staff:
With their combined experience and areas of expertise, our team of camp instructors is looking forward to providing an enriching and fun week of theater development.
We are thrilled to have Megan Hicks return to Twisp to lead her 7th summer camp with us! She is a director, actor, and choreographer from the Puget Sound and teaches junior high drama and English. She looks forward to working with new and returning campers to build theatre skills and create well rounded characters!
And in a serendipitous turn of events, we are so lucky to bring you Julie Wenzel! Julie has been involved with theater since she was a child. She has a BA in the theater from the University of WA with a specialization in children's theater. Previously the Artistic Director of The Merc Playhouse, she is currently the Development Director of Fidalgo DanceWorks and is working to complete her masters degree in counseling from Seton Hall University.
Added to this powerhouse is Jane Orme, a veteran teacher at Liberty Bell Jr. Sr. High and a Merc board member. Jane has directed a number of shows at The Merc over the past four years, and before that she directed at Liberty Bell for over two decades! She is currently working with our children directing Charlotte's Web and last year helped direct Rikki Tikki Tavi.
Missi Smith, The Merc's Executive Director, helped direct Rikki Tikki Tavi last year and before that Peter Pan. She has been dancing since she was a child and has choreographed at The Merc since working with Julie on The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. She has worn nearly every hat at The Merc from actor, to board member, to staff member. She is thrilled to be working with this team of instructors and can't wait to see all the kids this summer!
Each of these instructors will work with both camps in a number of ways throughout each day. They are excited for a fun-filled week with all of you!!
Join us this summer!
