Event has passed

    Heartwood Theater Summer Camp students are set to deliver fun for all ages, with “Scapino!” performances on July 14 at 7 p.m. and July 15 at 2 p.m. in the Poe Theater at Lincoln Academy.  No reservations required - $5/students and $10/adults.  Doors open for general seating 30 minutes prior to show time.

    This rollicking performance of Commedia dell'arte is based on Moliere's "The Trickeries of Scapin," adapted by Jim Dale and Frank Dunlop.  The fast-paced story features multiple styles of comedy, tap dance, delightful costumes and loads of laughs.  Not only suitable for all ages, but "delightful" for all ages!

    Twenty-seven students, middle school and high school ages, are immersed in the world of comedy for three weeks. Morning classes consist of Circus Arts (especially juggling) with Liz Giles-Brown, Tap Dance with Michelle Bruckner, and Fight & Physicality (including pratfalls) with Stephen Shore and Ray Huth.  Afternoons entail scene work, the history and art of comedy, and rehearsals with Griff Braley and instructors.

    Heartwood’s Summer Camp is sponsored by several generous Midcoast businesses:  Bath Savings Institution and Chesterfield Associates, Inc. (Season Sponsors), Damariscotta Hardware (Youth Sponsor), First National Bank (Education Sponsor), J. Edward Knight Ins. (Camp Sponsor).   Many scholarships were provided to students, with the help of Colby and Gale, The Cheney Financial Group and Bath Savings Institution.  Heartwood is grateful to these businesses, along with anonymous grantors and many individuals who help make Heartwood youth programming possible.
