PVTC summer acting instructors provide opportunities for students to explore the art and joy of acting. Acting instructors collaborate with a camp-specific director to challenge and support the growth of each actor in their role through games, exercises, conversations, and fun. Acting instructors will lead rotations of 8-12 campers through acting basics as well as share leadership of full camp warm-ups and games.
PVTC camp stage managers orchestrate the behind the scenes “choreography” of each summer camp show. Stage managers are intimately acquainted with the vision of the designers and director carry out administrative duties to ensure the success of the vision. Stage managers are responsible for designing a smooth rehearsal and performance process.
PVTC’s intern coordinator works with up to 50 high school interns to ensure a meaningful internship experience with PVTC. Before camp, the intern coordinator works with PVTC management to review all intern applicants and place them in appropriate roles, communicate with interns about their placements, training, and pre-camp responsibilities, send interns scheduling reminders, and assist interns with goal-setting processes. During camp, the intern coordinator provides information around schedule, acts as a liaison between staff and interns, conducts regular check-ins regarding intern experience, growth, questions, and concerns. The intern coordinator also provides opportunities for community building, personal growth, and special perks for interns. At the end of the summer, the intern coordinator provides a written report of progress for each intern.
PVTC summer choreographers collaborate with an experienced and enthusiastic creative team to plan for and execute dance moments in summer camp shows. Choreographers create and teach age and ability-appropriate movement sequences for camp projects. They lead physical dance-based warm-ups and teach dance technique and terminology in a safe, supportive environment.
