If the clapping, stomping, and cheering that filters through our office is any indication, 826 Boston’s Summer Theater & Writing Camp in partnership with the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) is off to a rollicking start. Monday through Thursday, students loosen up with improv games, master the art of dialogue, and craft a society of their own creation.
In conjunction with the A.R.T.’s upcoming production of Finding Neverland, a musical based on the life of Peter Pan-creator J.M. Barrie and directed by Tony-award winner Diane Paulus, our summer camp students are exploring the concept of world-building by imagining utopias, dystopias, and worlds in between. In a one-night performance at the Strand Theatre, these worlds will come to life on stage, as students introduce us to the characters who inhabit their imagined universe worthy of Wendy, Tinkerbell, and the Lost Boys.
826 Boston’s Summer Theater and Writing Camp is made possible by generous support from Robert K. Kraft.
