8th Grade: The Choice Year

8th graders have choices at TPE!  You can sign up for almost all of the available camps.  How will you ever make up your mind?  Here’s a list of your choices, along with our recommendations:

Middle School Ensemble

We recommend that you stay in the Middle School Ensemble as long as possible.  Get juicier roles, be a leader of your ensemble, get individual direction, and really hone your skills.

High School Ensemble

The best place if you already know that you love Shakespeare and camping.

Commedia Troupe

Physically demanding rehearsals and a long tour can make Commedia Troupe a hard place for a rising 9th grader.  However, it’s the right place for some campers; if you’re up for a real challenge, you can audition and we’ll let you know if we think you’re ready.

Tech Theatre

Build, sew, paint, and go on tour with one of our ensembles.

Middle School and High School Double Session

“The Choice Year Special” – Get the best of both worlds: be a leader in the first session and then move on to the joys and challenges of Shakespeare in the second session.  A very popular choice.

Middle School and Commedia Troupe Double Session

“The Choice Year Special Deluxe” – As above, but you do Commedia Troupe in the second session.
