Youth theatre camp offered this summer

Classes offered for aspiring young actors from 10 to 15 years old

Young aspiring actors, aged 10 to 15 years of age, are invited to register for a week-long theatre camp happening in July.

Bard in the Valley, the Langley Players and the City of Langley are joining forces to create an opportunity for Langley’s youth.

A maximum of 12 young people will be introduced to improv theatre techniques and games, scriptwriting, costuming, makeup, set design, set construction and set decorating.

The camp will be held at the Langley Playhouse, so the young actors will have the thrill of presenting a show on the Playhouse stage for their friends and family on Saturday, the final day.

The camp will be led by Loryn LeGear, who has an associates diploma for performing arts, teaches drama at Stagecoach Theatre Arts and leads Bard in the Valley’s Pro D day Youth Drama camps at Langley Centennial Museum.

She has also worked with Surrey Little Theatre’s Youth Improv team and directed their summer youth show “The Unusual Suspects.”

Le Gear was last seen on stage in Surrey Little Theatre’s spring production of “Home Fires.”
