The Young People’s Center for Creative Arts is now accepting enrollment for our 2014 summer theater camp to take
place at East Hampton High School during the month of July. YPCCA is a non-profit theater arts camp devoted to bringing
musical theater to students in the central Connecticut area.
The Young People’s Center for Creative Arts is also excited to announce our summer 2014 show, the Broadway hit –
Shrek The Musical! Shrek The Musical, based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious
story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on stage.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly
ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a villain with a
SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls
for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
Mornings at YPCCA are devoted to workshops in a variety of artistic endeavors including Show Choir, Stage Combat,
Comedy Improvisation and Shakespeare. Afternoons are spent rehearsing for our full-length musical production. This year
we also plan to march in East Hampton’s Old Home Day parade where in 2009 and 2013, YPCCA won an award for our float
Shrek The Musical auditions will take place at East Hampton High School on Sunday, June 15th. It is NOT mandatory to
audition to participate in the camp – everyone is in the show whether they audition or not. Students will be asked to sing,
dance and read at the auditions. The cast list will be announced the first day of camp.
YPCCA will take place Monday, June 30th through Sunday, July 27th, 2014. It is open to students entering grades six
through freshman year of college and is located at East Hampton High School. Tuition for the four-week program is $550.00
per student if you register by May 1st, 2014. We also offer two full and two partial scholarships each summer.
YPCCA will also be heading to New York City this summer to see a Broadway show. All campers are eligible for the trip
that includes transportation, lunch and the show for approximately $100.
The staff of YPCCA is made up of professional actors and teachers from throughout Connecticut. Students and staff of
the program have gone on to work and perform on Broadway as well as regional theaters including Long Wharf Theater,
Goodspeed Opera House, Hartford Stage and the Eugene O’Neil Theater.
