FREE Summer Theatre Camp for Youth - act now!

[Eliberto Gonzalez, co-founder of Cara Mia Theatre Company in Dallas, passed along the following info. ]

Still have some spaces left in our FREE Summer Theatre Camp
Cara Mía Theatre Company will continue to serve the Latino theater-loving community and its families with this summer's FREE theater camp for youth. In existence since 1997, the Chicano Academy for Summer Theatre (CAST) will take on Carpa (Tent) Theatre - Mexican vaudeville - with kids aged 9 to 13 for a six-week summer session that culminates in an entirely youth-produced performance. CAST: Carpa Theatre for Youth will be from June 6 to July 15, 2005 at the Ice House Cultural Center. Daily weekday sessions are from 9 a.m. to noon.

Cara Mía's artists will assist the youth in reflecting on their lives to find material for their own "actos". Participants will write, design and perform original scenes in the style of traditional Carpa Theatre. Participants will also learn about elements that are commonly used in Cara Mía's own professional productions - the theatre clown, Mexican folk theatre and masks.

Limited number of spaces available. Applications being taken now. Please contact 214.946.9499 or for an application or additional information.

Here's the Cara Mia website.

Note: The Camp takes place at the Ice House Cultural Center in Oak Cliff (South) Dallas.
