Lummi Island Summer Theater Camp
For the past six summers, L.I.F.E., the Beach School PTO, the Ferndale School District and the Lummi Island community have worked in partnership and created a wonderful performing arts opportunity for children grades K-12th.
This summer our 6th Annual Summer Theater Camp was a smashing success, engaging fifty-seven participants from all over the United States and Canada in the magic of musical theater as they built two productions: Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods, Jr." and Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein's "Fiddler on the Roof, Jr."
Our staff included Music Director Jason Parker, and Directors Mark Kuntz and Selene Nelson. Alyssa Daschbach returned as Dance Captain, Hadassah McGill and Kristi Anderson joined us as pianists and Erna Gregory returned as Camp Director.
Lummi Island Summer Theater Camp is supported by our community with over twenty volunteers and strong support from the Ferndale School District.
From the get-go, Lummi Island Summer Theater Camp has been a huge success! For our first production, of "Annie" 24 campers join us, next we chose Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific". For the summer of 2015 we performed Strouse, Adams and Stewart's "Bye Bye Birdie" for which we had 46 campers enrolled. In 2016 it was Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance" followed by Meredith Wilson's "Music Man". Each summer our camp continues to grow as campers return to Lummi Island and new campers of all ages join us for the first time.
Every summer our campers learn about acting, staging and voice and explore solo as well as ensemble singing and movement with professionals that have worked all over the country.
Get ready for Summer 2019! More exciting news in store so please stay tuned!!
