Blast Camps are fun, week-long camps in which students experience musical theatre performance. They build confidence by rehearsing a short script written specifically for RMTC, and they perform at the end of the week in front of a supportive community of family and friends. In preparing for a performance, students learn discipline and memorization skills that they can take with them to their scholastic work.
This week’s script is Another Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas. Set in the 1950s, a group of students from Treeville Elementary School are really excited about the town Christmas Dance. But when the band backs out last minute, they must find a way to save the dance and keep Christmas cheer alive!

In this fun and fast-paced camp, young artists will learn to think on their feet and react quickly, and often humorously, amongst their peers. Through improv, students will gain important life skills in addition to confidence and self-assurance. They’ll find a new certainty in themselves and learn it’s OK to be silly.
