Performing Arts, Music and Theatre
North Star Community Services' Inclusive Community Theatre presents "Peter Pan." The play features actors of all abilities who have come together to build sets, make costumes and produce a quality full length musical.
UNI CMS Camp Musicmania is a multifaceted music and arts camp whose primary purpose is to provide fun and innovative activities that will engage campers in the excitement of exploring singing, dancing, drumming, Orff activities, drama, art, and the Camp Musical Theme "BONES" ! Although the theme of the camp will be "Bones", the production and performance of the actual Musical will be for the older age division (4th-9th grades). The younger age division (K-3rd) will enjoy age appropriate activities that incorporate the same theme... but will have their own parent performance to showcase their talents and share their camp activities. The two separate Age Division performances will be given on Friday. Instructors include UNI Faculty, UNI music, drama, and art education majors, and area music, drama, and art educators. Limited Scholarship monies are available. Early registration is strongly recommended. Registration Deadline: June 1, 2013
Cost: K-3 $75. 4-9 $95. Cost includes Camp T-shirt and snacks.
