Never too Young to Dream Big
THELMA’s youth theater camp, On Stage @ THELMA, is a two-week camp where fourth through eighth grade students learn the lines, the songs, the choreography, and build the sets for a theatre production. On the final day of the camp, students will perform the musical for family and friends to enjoy! For the 2023 summer, our On Stage @ THELMA musical will be We Are Monsters! We Are Monsters is a hilarious new musical that follows human kids into a monster cabaret filled with quirky monster characters. The adventurous humans uncover vegetarian vampires and rock n’ roll werewolves, gradually realizing there may be more to these monsters than meets the eye! Most importantly these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating in the attributes that make each of us different and unique.

Eva has more than 10 years of experience directing and producing Children’s Theater, including last year’s On Stage @ THELMA production of “The Claw!” The children will also gain hands-on experience with set design by working with visual arts instructor Anoush Cowles. Cowles teaches at Evans and Rosenow elementary schools. Both bring a passion for children’s creative process to the production.
