ROGERSVILLE, TN — Rogersville Arts Council announces its second one-week day camp for students who have just finished grades K-8. Last year, students from Hawkins County charmed audiences with a wide range of songs and scenes from Disney. This year, students have the opportunity to learn and perform classic songs from the American musical theater. Students learn songs from shows such as “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Annie,” “Get Your Gun,” “The Sound of Music,” “The Music Man” and “Bye, Bye, Birdie.” The camp features song, dance and scene work from the timeless musical “Annie,” including the songs “Hard Knock Life,” “Maybe,” “Tomorrow” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”

The Broadway Show Choir Camp
is held at Cherokee High School. It takes place Monday through Friday, June 18-22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Campers are required to bring a bag lunch each day. Performances are held Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 6 p.m., and Sunday, June 24, at 3 p.m., in the CHS Little Theatre. Tickets are available online or at the door for $7. All proceeds go toward arts programs and education for citizens of Rogersville and Hawkins County.

The camp is directed by RAC Board member Amanda Campbell, who has served as actor, music director and/or director for several shows with the RAC, and Encore Theatrical Company in Morristown. She has also directed all of RAC’s youth drama productions since 2012, including “The Little Mermaid Jr.,” “Annie Jr.,” “Sleeping Beauty Kids,” “Cinderella Kids” and “Honk Jr.” The camp is co-directed and choreographed by board member Anna Campbell, actor, choreographer, dancer and dance instructor whose work includes Encore Theatrical Company, RAC with youth drama productions, and teaching multiple genres at Studio 180 Dance in Morristown.

Interested campers who have just completed grades K-8 may register at RAC’s website under the “Registration Forms” tab. There is a $25 camp fee, payable online or by check, which covers a camp t-shirt for the performances, music and CD for songs, and two complimentary tickets to a performance. Registration is open until Wednesday, June 13. For questions not answered by the registration form, email, or call/text the director, Amanda Campbell at 423-307-2341.
