Corbin Kids Company
Corbin Kids Company was established in 2011 as an answer to the lack of affordable, quality theatre camps for kids in the Liberty Area. The first year, we had 40 kids. By the third year, we sold out within three weeks of opening registration, and so decided to expand to two camps for the fourth year. This year we sold out within 2 months of open registration. We have two camp, the younger group is for kids ages 6-11, and the older camp for kids ages 12-18. We have a very dedicated staff, all of whom are volunteers, including our camp founder and director Maggie Thomas. We are able to do this camp, in part, to William Jewell College allowing us to use their facility. Camp is two weeks long from 6:00PM-9:00PM from Monday to Friday with an add on Saturday for the second week. Camp culimates in three performances, Friday night and then two on Saturday. We teach theatrical methods for the first 30-45 minutes of each night. Topics vary, but have included: STAGE MOVEMENT, CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, TECH (sound & lights), SET DESIGN, COSTUMES DESIGN, MAKEUP, DIALECT & DIALOUGUE, STORY TELLING, IMPROV, THEATRE ROLES, and others.
Corbin Theatre is proud to bring local and national talent to our stage monthly. We strive to bring different instrumentation, idioms, and genres throughout the year. Please check out our calendar and BUY TICKETS today. We are a quaint with limited seating so we can sell out quickly.
