PLAY IN A DAY

This bold new camp merges two worlds we’ve been playing in over this last year- the digital and the “distanced” in-person. You’ll spend the first two sessions on Zoom, getting to know your playfellows, your Teaching Artists, and the play. On the third and final session, you’ll come together at the BMO Theatre Centre to create your “Play in a Day”! We’ll embrace improvisation, spontaneity and the unpredictability of this special performance—all to be recorded so you can view after the session with your friends and family.

*Please note, selecting the play will be part of the experience. It will be different for each session! 

Who: 8-12 year olds
Where: Hybrid (on Zoom and at the BMO Theatre Centre in Bard’s rehearsal studios)
