UM announces Alabama High School Theatre Camp

The University of Montevallo’s Office of Partnerships and Outreach is pleased to announce the creation of the Alabama High School Theatre Camp. This camp compliments the already established Young Musicians’ Camp, Coding Camp and ACT Prep Camp.


The Alabama High School Theatre Camp, held June 11-16, is a state-wide residential program that will provide a process-focused approach, engaging several areas of theater to train young high school actors of all levels.


Students will have the opportunity to learn musical theater auditioning skills, acting methods for television and film as well as vocal techniques. Aside from performance, participants will also gain knowledge of key technical and design areas of theater, including makeup, lighting, welding and even 3-D printing.


“Community leaders, parents, and high school theater teachers have overwhelmingly expressed a desire for the University of Montevallo to host a theater camp,” stated Kelli Holmes, director of the Office of Partnerships and Outreach.


“The University strives to be a resourceful community partner, and our faculty collectively represent decades of experience in theater, music, film and TV including work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, national tours and regional productions,” she said.


Participants attending this camp will also have the opportunity to earn scholarship money toward their tuition as prospective University students.


The two top-performing incoming high school seniors who attend the camp will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to UM. Additionally, the two top-performing freshman and sophomore level attendees will receive a full-paid scholarship to the 2018 Alabama High School Theatre Camp.
