CCT’s camp to feature 'Grease'

CCT’s summer Advanced Imagination Camp, featuring a production of “Grease,” is seeking youth actors and actresses interested in being a part of a challenging summer theater experience.

Registration for the two week camp is open, and registration forms can be downloaded at

Advanced Camp is open to students entering seventh- through 12th grade in the fall. Individuals who are graduating this spring also can enroll in the camp.

The camp runs for two weeks, June 17 through 30, and will conclude with four performances for the public. A full, per-day schedule can be found on CCT’s website.

“Grease” follows the famous characters of Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: the duck-tailed, hot-rodding T-Birds and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies.” Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights’ as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through songs such as “Greased Lighting,” “Hand Jive,” and “You’re the One That I Want.”

Students who enroll in Advanced Imagination Camp will be tasked with creating the full production from start to finish in just two weeks. All participants will receive an onstage role in the production and will take part in daily activities and training session in this performance-based experience.

Cost of the two week Advanced Camp is $125 and includes daily instruction, a “Grease” cast T-shirt, participation in four public performances and a dinner during a dress rehearsal.

CCT also is accepting registrations for its Beginner’s Camp, which will follow the theme of “Wild Wild West,” and run June 11 through 21.

Students will help in creating their very own skit, while being treated to daily breakout sessions that include art, music, dance, acting, theater games, basic stage combat and costume creation.

Beginner’s Imagination Camp is open to students who will be in kindergarten through sixth grade in the fall. Camp session runs from 9 a.m. to noon each day at St. John’s Lutheran Church, and concludes with a public performance on at 7 p.m. June 21.

Cost of the two week camp is $95 and includes daily instruction, as well as participation in the two public performances.

To register for CCT’s Imagination Camp, visit or find CCT of DeKalb on Facebook. Enrollment for both camps is limited and tends to fill up quickly.
Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.
