WHO ARE WE?
Page & Stage Theatre is an emerging company of theatre professionals and teachers based out of Hamilton County, Indiana. Our signature event is the Page & Stage Summer Camp, in which children and youth learn vital reading skills through the art of theatre.
WHERE ARE WE?
We are based in Hamilton County, Indiana. We welcome campers in the Hamilton County and all surrounding counties. In the past, we have even had students fly in from Brazil to participate.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Look back on your childhood. Think of your strongest memories and most profound learning adventures. Both science and experience tell you these things are stronger because of your emotional connections to them.
Emotion enhances memory and learning. The theatre is a safe place to explore emotions and forge those deep, lasting connections. At our camp, we use theatre games, rehearsals, and performance to teach phonics, vocabulary, grammar, and reading comprehension. Each day, our campers are onstage, rehearsing and performing their new reading skills. So, what better place for a child to learn to read, or improve reading, than on stage?
This is the mission of Page & Stage Camp – to build literacy at all levels through the fun, play, and constant learning of theatre!
Page & Stage Summer Camp includes such activities as…
Reading Comprehension through Pantomime, Improv, and “Plot Twisting”
Literacy Plays that teach key aspects of reading and writing
Performed poetry, written by local authors and the kids themselves!
A final performance in which every camper performs and shows off their new skills.
There are no stars on our stage – just great performances!
