The Magik Theatre Adds New E-Cademy Classes Through August

The Magik Theatre continues to keep kids engaged during COVID-19 by offering its programs on an online platform to support the community’s “stay-at-home” effort.  As the school year draws to a close, the Magik Theatre is pleased to present its premiere summer program, Camp Showbiz, as an E-cademy theatre option with online classes through August 21.

“As we continue to work through social distancing, we are re-imagining the drama classroom,” said Rudy Ramirez, Magik’s Director of Education. “We firmly believe in the many benefits theater education has to offer and have worked hard to modify our approach to fit into an online summer camp platform. Especially now, we believe in the value of imagination, community, and storytelling.”

“First introduced in May, the Magik Theatre’s E-cademy platform sold out within just a few days! We’re excited to evolve our popular Camp Showbiz as an E-cademy, giving parents a way to enrich their children’s creative energy at home throughout the summer months,” said Artistic Director Anthony Runfola. “As the city awaits updates on in-person summer camp gathering guidelines, we are taking a wait and see approach to extending these options to in-person and we will alert our members on how this will look should they want to explore this in-person option.”

Magik Camp Showbiz E-cademy Classes — June 1-Aug. 21, 2020
