The Imperial Theatre presents Cyber Theater Summer Camp 

The Imperial Theatre is offering a unique opportunity for students, ranging from rising 8th graders to high school and college students to learn the technical aspects of theatre during the  Cyber Summer Theatre Camp which will run from Monday,  June 24th   thru Friday, June 28th, 2019. Attendees will learn about the use of computers, electronic technology and web-based platforms that support the technical aspects of theatre and the interdisciplinary approach taken by the crew leaders and members to provide the highest level of service for performing arts organizations and promoters who rent the theatre for their productions, as well as a magical and meaningful experience for their patrons. Each day of the class will focus on a particular aspect of theatre crafts including technical direction, lighting, audio/sound, rigging, box-office administration, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and a review of safety including automated fire systems.   Classes will take place in the Imperial Theatre from 9am to 1pm each day. The registration fee is$150.00 per student with scholarships available on a case-by-case basis for economically challenged students. Teachers are encouraged to apply for the scholarships on behalf of their student.

The Imperial Theatre  is a non-profit community theatre which serves as the “home” to the Colton Ballet, the Augusta Players, and the Morris Museum of Art’s “Southern Soul and Song” music series. The Columbia County Ballet has been performing in their holiday production of the “The Nutcracker” in the Imperial for years.

While there are a variety of wonderful learning and training opportunities for students with an interest in performing arts, whether it is theatrical, dance forms or music, there is little training available locally that includes a comprehensive overview of the various technical disciplines associated with stage craft.  The Cyber Summer Theatre Camp is intended to provide an overview for individuals interested in learning more about the technical aspects of theatre in the 21st Century.  Funding for this project comes from the Greater Augusta Arts Council re-grant of funds from Augusta, Richmond County.
