Camp Seven Sisters
Theme: Come Perform “Wythe” Us
Have you ever dreamed of being on stage or seeing what it takes behind the scenes to make a performance happen? This year we are teaming up with the professionals at the Wohlfahrt Haus Dinner Theater (www.wohlfahrthaus.com) to learn all aspects from performance and auditioning tips to make-up, costumes and props. You will even be taught a small number to perform for your family on Tuesday night. Don’t want to be in the spotlight? That’s okay too, because the behind the scenes action is just as important, and that might be where you find your talents! We will spend our daytime at the theater and come back to the fairgrounds for dinner, a pool party and campfire. We will hold a pin swap too, so come prepared with your SWAPS.
