Welcome to the The Show Must Go On…line Theatre Camp! We're excited to offer a fun, dynamic, entertaining, and interactive theater experience for children and teens sponsored by the Augusta Players, Inc. Our camp is staffed by energetic theater professionals, with years and years of experience working with kids. All students will enjoy the opportunity to spend each day on the fundamentals of theatre including acting, singing, dancing, and so much more! Watch their creativity come to life within a camp day that runs from 9am-12pm, with bonus extended time for our Master Class participants. Be sure not to miss our Final Performance, a spectacular variety show where the students perform imaginative scenes, songs, and dances live and then recorded for friends and family to enjoy.
Please take a moment to read through this informative Summer Camp Handbook, where we hope to answer all your questions about the basics of how our camp operates. If you have any questions that are not addressed here, please feel free to check the FAQ contact us by email HERE or by phone at 706-826-4707. (OR click HERE.)
2020 Camp Dates
June 22-July 3
Regular Camp Hours: 9:00am-12:00pm
Master Class: 9:00am-12:30pm
Snack and Stretch
Snack is 10:15 am - 10:30 am. Students can use this time to get a snack and use the restroom if necessary. There will also be a daily dance party during this break!
Much of what is taught and rehearsed on a daily basis at camp is geared towards this Final Performance. Because of this, it's very important that your camper miss as little class time as possible. If excessive tardiness and/or absences become too much, students will run the risk of not being able to participate in the Final Performance due to their lack of knowledge or preparation of the performance's material.
Please note that the Final Performance for our camp will be pre-recorded and broadcast on Thursday evening, July 9, 2020 at 7 PM. It will be available to share with family and friends all across the country and available for repeated viewings.
What Should I Wear to Camp?
Wear clothing that they'll feel comfortable moving around in. Whether it be dancing or rolling around on the ground in Acting class, our campers move! Dresses worn should have shorts underneath. And please, nothing too revealing.
Closed-toe shoes and socks are required. Flip flops, backless sandals, high heels, and boots are dangerous for students to wear for our camp activities.
We will be using the parent emails that you provided on your Registration to inform you of up-to-date camp news throughout the session. This will be 99% of our communication to you, and it's important that you receive it! If you'd like a different or additional email to be used, please let Director Rebecca know. And if you haven't received an email from us by the end of the first week of the session, then we have the wrong email for you, or our emails to you are being auto-filtered to your Spam Folder.

Take a moment to make sure that your student understands the expectations that you, The Show Must Go On….line, and the Augusta Players. Inc. have of them. Students may not share the same beliefs or opinions on a wide variety of topics, however they are required to be respectful of everyone's differences. Disrespectful behavior or comments are not welcome in our camp.
If problems arise, our staff will do all that we can to help address it in an appropriate and positive manner. This might include a camper having to be placed in a time-out, supervised by a teacher or Counselor. If continued warnings and/or actions become ineffective with offending campers, then contact with parents might be needed, with the possibility of expulsion from the camp. Refunds are not available for campers who are dismissed from camp due to discipline issues.
Immediate dismissal can occur for the following reasons: fighting (verbal), disruptive or threatening behavior, bullying, leaving the Zoom Classroom without permission, being under the influence of any illegal drugs or alcohol, or theft or damage to any personal or theatre property. Refunds will not be available for any camper who is immediately dismissed due to these issues.
