Local theater teaches children about the Renaissance

July 16, 2013 by  

Renaissance Faire Week, which occurs at the end of this month, is a presentation of Beth Chaim’s Schmata Productions Community Youth Theater.

The week is designed to give children a fun way of learning about history and theater. Kids between the ages of 5 and 19 can attend either a full-day or a half-day camp in which they will learn what live was like during the Renaissance. They will also take part in a variety of fun projects, such as learning how to play historic musical instruments and juggle. Those attending will participate in creative projects that will help to develop their team-building and goal-setting skills.

At the end of the week, there will be a Renaissance feast for family and friends of the students. It all promises to be a great learning experience for the children who attend and for their families who will naturally hear all about it.

With a high turnout anticipated, is it likely that organizers of the camp will be working with Malvern printing companies to prepare materials for the week. This might include booklets on various Renaissance topics, sign-up forms, and flyers to advertise the camp to families throughout the area.

Renaissance Faire Week will take place at the Community Youth Theater from July 29 to August 2 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm each day. Fees are $220 for a full day and $160 for a half day which runs from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. For more information about the week, call 610-733-2289.
