ROGERSVILLE — The Rogersville Arts Council will be hosting a weeklong Broadway Show Choir Camp for aspiring young performers who have just completed any grade from K-8.

The event will be held at Cherokee High School June 18-22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Last year, students from Hawkins County charmed audiences with a wide range of songs and scenes from Disney.

This year, students have the opportunity to learn and perform classic songs from American musical theatre. Participants will learn songs from shows such as “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Annie, Get Your Gun,” “The Sound of Music,” “The Music Man” and “Bye, Bye, Birdie.”

The camp will also feature song, dance and scene work from the timeless musical “Annie,” including the songs “Hard Knock Life,” “Maybe,” “Tomorrow” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.”

Campers will be required to bring a bag lunch each day. Performances will be held Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 24, at 3 p.m. in the CHS Little Theatre. Tickets will be available online or at the door for $7. All proceeds will go toward arts programs and education for citizens of Rogersville and Hawkins County.

The camp will be directed by RAC board member Amanda Campbell, who has served as actor, music director, and/or director for several shows with the RAC and Encore Theatrical Company in Morristown.

She has also directed all of RAC’s youth drama productions since 2012, including “The Little Mermaid Jr.,” “Annie Jr.,” “Sleeping Beauty Kids,” “Cinderella Kids” and “Honk Jr.”

The camp will be co-directed and choreographed by board member Anna Campbell, actor, choreographer, dancer, and dance instructor, whose work includes Encore Theatrical Company, RAC with youth drama productions and teaching multiple genres at Studio 180 Dance in Morristown.

Campers may register at RAC’s website, www.rogartscouncil.org, under the “Registration Forms” tab.

There is a $25 camp fee, payable online or by check, which covers a camp T-shirt for the performances, music and CD for songs, and 2 complimentary tickets to a performance. Registration will be open until Wednesday, June 13.
