Tri-State Actors Theater will hold its summer theater day camp for children, June 26-30, at the office of the Sussex County Arts & Heritage Council, 133 Spring St., Newton. The camp offers an introduction to understanding the art of theater through the pure fun of playing together and learning about the stage, acting, puppetry and other hands-on activities, all put together for children.
Tri-State's summer theater camp, for children ages 6-12, will be under the instruction of Patricia Meacham. A longtime educator and theater professional, Meacham has worked with children in theater and education for over 25 years and has guided youngsters in many acting and puppetry workshops in Sussex County. She has served as TAT's managing director since 1988.
Summer classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The classes will focus on creative dramatics and theater games. All supplies and materials are included in the camp fee. Children will need to bring their own snack or lunch and water or juice each day and wear comfortable clothing, no flip flops. There will be a brief presentation by the campers for their parents and family on the final day of camp.
Advance registration is required. The class registration fee for the week's camp is $200. Payment may be made by check, cash or money order.

There are many important skills that aspiring actors can learn through acting classes that will help to be creative, both mentally and physically. The camp will teach a variety of skills and traits -- confidence, public speaking, teamwork, poise, and communication -- that will benefit students -- from children to adults -- in countless other parts of their lives.
Tri-State Actors Theater is a 501c3 non-profit organization and a regrantee of the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Council. Funding for Season 2016 has been made available in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through the State/County Partnership Block Grant Program, as administered by the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Council.
