Join us for the Camp Pine Lake production of The Call of the Matterhorn — a week-long theatre day camp taught by Footliters Traveling Playhouse that ends in a full production!
Footliters Traveling Playhouse is a new touring program of Young Footliters Youth Theatre, a part of the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. Footliters' Teaching Artists will guide participants and be a part of the final production.
Each day the group will hone their acting skills, and every camper will be part of the cast. The group will take the stage in a final performance on Friday, August 12 at 7 p.m. Families and friends are invited and encouraged to attend the performance.
Lunch and two snacks will be provided each day. Campers will also get the chance to dive into traditional camp fun, like outdoor games, hikes and slip 'n slide.
Following day camp on Friday, campers will stay with CPL staff for preparation and supper before the final performance.
About The Call of the Matterhorn
High above the foothills of the Swiss alps, one snowy mountain towers above them all – a mountain only for the bravest of heart. Join us for a musical adventure filled with magic, mystery, and tests of true character! Together we’ll climb to the highest peak. Only one question remains… will YOU answer The Call of the Matterhorn?
The Footliters Traveling Playhouse Experience
We believe theatre is for everyone. Each student receives a role, a costume, and the support they need to shine in this performance. Our team has decades of experience creating welcoming, engaging children's theatre programs.
From the first rehearsal to the final curtain, we believe theatre should be educational. We'll be teaching every student skills like projection, improvisation, creative problem solving, and how to work together to tell a story. We'll also be learning about the Alps, and exploring some of the most fascinating (and daring!) corners of the mountain ecosystem!
