“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” – Dr. Seuss
Accepting oneself for who they are is a journey. It comes with time, patience, and above all – love. Campers will come together in a harmonious musical extravaganza of what it means to accept and respect the individual staring back in the mirror.
Performance June 29th at 6:30pm
CAMP IS HELD AT FLAGER PLACE, 201 SW FLAGLER STREET, STUART
A typical day at L.A.S.C. is anything but typical. Each day campers will rotate to drama, dance and music groups where they learn new skills, materials and work on their presentations for the grand finale – a show right here on The Lyric stage!
At Lyric’s AWESOME! Summer Camp, we are more interested in developing camper’s character off the stage than on stage. LASC has proven to be a powerful platform to get kids on board with socially responsible behavior. Each session supports a theme to promote teamwork, self-discipline, problem solving, tolerance and kindness. We use the performing arts as a medium to teach practical life skills applications and character-building techniques that translate to everyday life. Each of the teaching staff at LASC are passionately committed not only to arts education, but to bolstering the self-confidence and empowerment of each of our campers. Through working together toward the common goal of presenting the sharing, our blossoming actors learn to overcome adversity, insecurities and respect for direction and different points of view. And it’s just plain FUN!
Don’t want to be on stage? We’ve got an important role for you too! Join our Stage Crew and build props, scenery and help run the show. And just to round things out, we throw in some crazy summer camp fun like a arts & crafts, game show fun, movie days and outdoor recreation.
