Summer theater camps

Thinking about summer camps for the kids? Downtown Knoxville’s two historic theaters are offering them.

The Bijou Theatre Summer Camps and Workshops are the perfect opportunity for students ages 9-17 with a fun-packed summer filled with making new friends, learning new talents and making lots of great memories! Info here.

The Tennessee Theatre offers an immersive arts education program for grades 5-12 that introduces students to many aspects of theater-making, hip hop in musicals and the history of the American Revolution. Instruction will be led by Amanda Taylor, theatre teacher at Beaumont Magnet Academy, and will offer behind-the-scenes looks at touring Broadway productions, explore characters, setting, time period, theme and motivation, music and more!

Congratulations to L & N STEM Academy superlatives: Salutatorian Duncan Arnold and Valedictorian Hayden Brackeen.
