This summer’s theatre camp is going to be our biggest and most exciting ever!!!

Now in our 5th year, Brockville Theatre Camp is designed to encourage kids to have fun exploring their theatrical side as they learn the ins and outs of theatre production under the expert direction of veteran stage performer Todd Noel and his staff.

As a result of the increasing popularity of our camps over the past few years, this summer we will be offering programs for two different age groups, which will allow us to concentrate on appropriate levels of performance for each group.

Junior Company (ages 6-8) will introduce younger children to the fundamentals of musical theatre, including singing, dancing and acting. There will also be lots of games, crafts, and general silliness.

Main Stage Company (ages 9-14) will focus on developing more in-depth theatre performance skills and fostering proper technique. While singing, dancing and acting will be the primary focus, Main Stage Company participants will experience all aspects of theatre, from make-up and costumes to sound and lighting.

The two groups will run simultaneously in different spaces within the same building, with participants coming together for the much-anticipated end-of-camp performance for friends and family. This year’s show will be on the big stage at the Brockville Arts Centre and will feature songs from Frozen, Newsies, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

NOTE: Children must attend the full two-week session in order to participate in the end-of-camp show.

Past Guest Broadway Performer

She performed to sold out houses in six countries including two weeks at London’s’ Royal Albert Hall and two weeks at Radio City Music Hall. Her moving performances of the Pie Jesu (Requiem) received rave reviews from critics worldwide.

Gay then starred as Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera opposite Colm Wilkinson. “As Christine, Willis’ voice has an almost ethereal quality…transporting the audience to unexpected heights emotionally as well as vocally.”(Maui News) She completed over 1000 performances as Magnolia in Hal Prince’s production of Showboat on Broadway, in Chicago, and on tour starring with such legends as Cloris Leachman, Anita Gillette, Elaine Stritch, Dorothy Loudon, Marilyn McCoo, Dick Van Patten, Pat Harrington, John McMartin, and Dean Jones.Hal Prince’s Magnolia, Gay Willis is simply unsurpassable in the starring role. Willis is not only a superb singer, floating a silvery tone while phrasing for maximum emotional expressiveness and absolute clarity of diction, but also a consummate actor. –Ailse Say Boston “Willis’ Magnolia ages from bubbly ingénue to knowing matron and mother with great finesse and a strong emotional edge.”(Variety). She received the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best Actress in a Touring Musical for this role.
Other performances include Rapunzel in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods (Kennedy Center), Mabel in Pirates of Penzance (Carbonell Award winner for Best Actress), Bloomer Girl (City Center), Funny Girl (with Whoopi Goldberg), and Nothing Like a Dame (raves from Liz Smith-New York Post). Maria in West Side Story. Gay Willis was a shining Maria, with a pure silvery soprano and a natural acting style.–New York Times

Gay’s recent concert career has taken her throughout the United States including four sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall. She was also featured in the PBS special, “From Galway to Broadway” which aired throughout the United States. Gay appeared on “Seth Rudetsky’s Live on Broadway” in August 2009 which aired nationally on Sirus/XM radio, appeared in “Seth’s Broadway 101″ at Ars Nova in New York City and again with Seth in “Give My Regards To Broadway” at Westbury Music Fair.
