Help your kids “act up” this summer with musical theater camps

  School’s Out, Now What?

Phoenix, Arizona – May 27, 2009 – As many valley schools wind down the school year this week, parents are on the hunt for things in which to fill their kid’s time during the summer months. With schools being forced to cut music and arts programs throughout the valley, summer camps can help replace what’s being cut in the school curriculum. Tambra Lamb, Artistic Director for CYT Phoenix, a theater arts group, says, “Kids gain a lot through theater arts summer camps. They not only have fun and build friendships, but they gain confidence, learn how to think creatively and develop leadership skills. It’s also a fun way to learn about team work and stretch your imagination.”

CYT Phoenix offers quality musical theater camps for kids ages 6-18 in four different locations around the valley, including South Scottsdale, North Scottsdale, Phoenix and Chandler. Week long summer camps begin June 1st and end July 10th.  Camps run Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm and include singing, dancing, acting, set design, costume and stage design as well as props and make-up. For specific locations and to register, go to www.cyptphoenix.org.

CYT Phoenix (Christian Youth Theater) is part of the largest and most successful youth theater program in the United States. CYT® offers after-school theater arts classes, participation in fully staged productions, and summer camps for students ranging in age from 6-18. Professional instructors teach acting, singing, dance, improv, stage combat and a variety of other theater arts skills which build confidence, character, and leadership abilities in young people.

Tambra Lamb, Artistic Director for CYT® Phoenix, worked as a professional actress and singer for 15 years in New York, Atlanta, and Cincinnati before moving Arizona.  She has toured in national productions with Dick Van Dyke, Morgan Fairchild and John Cullum as well as played lead and supporting roles in plays and musicals at various major regional theaters. Tambra now enjoys directing and teaching kids more than performing. “Young people can gain so many life skills through participation in the arts – we are excited to have this successful program in the Valley.”
