The Falcon Summer Camps – Musical Theater Camp 2021 is a project supported by the University of Texas Permian Basin Music Program. It will be held from June 14 - 18 in the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. Students entering 8th to 12th grade will be eligible to participate. Students will receive instruction in singing, acting, dancing, and stagecraft, culminating in a final performance for friends and family. No previous experience is necessary for participation. However, students are encouraged to bring two contrasting solo songs of classical and/or musical theatre style to work on in lessons.

Clothing

Every morning will begin with physical warmups, followed by choreography. Students should come to camp dressed in comfortable clothing (exercise clothes, dance clothes, or sweat pants) and bring dance shoes (jazz shoes, character shoes) if they have them. If they have no dance shoes, tennis shoes or socks are acceptable footwear. Students should bring a change of clothes (casual is fine) for the rest of the day when they will be singing and acting.

Concert will take place in the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center on June 18 at 7:30 pm. Free admission.

Repertoire

Recommended but not required: two contrasting solos (fast/slow, English/foreign language, or some other contrasting style) to work on with faculty. These songs may be programmed for the final concert, so memorized songs would be preferable. The rest of the music for the final performance will be given to the students upon arrival.
