  Incorporating Theatre Into the Camp Setting sets the stage for incorporating theatre into any camp program through a multitude of original, ready-to-use ideas for skits, plays, and a host of other creative low-prop ideas. Susan understands the importance of giving every child a chance to imagine, express, communicate, and, ultimately, be a star. The book draws from Susan's wealth of experience in the theatre world as a theatre teacher and camp director to provide her readers with a focused account of how camps can initiate, expand, or improve drama/theatre arts programs. Susan's plays are written with current child and teen voices in mind and require little technical production to be a major success, making them ideal for summer camps as well as school theatre programs short on time and budget.
