The WCU Theatre Summer Camp is for children from 8 to 17 and is limited to 30 students. The camp will run from 12:30-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 16-20, at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the WCU campus.

The camp will include games, improvisation, stage direction, character work and more. Students will work in groups to create characters and situations that will be short scenes for a Final Showcase. Two professional actors with Bright Star Children’s Theatre, will run the camp.


Voices in the Laurel’s Summer Voice Music Camp will expand this year to become the Voices in the Laurel Summer Music Quest with funding from the Young Singers Foundation Grant from Sweet Adelines International. The grant’s purpose is to support worthy projects which inspire children and youth to sing in harmony with approved, highly qualified music instructors.

The camp will take place July 30 – Aug. 3, from 8:45 a.m. -12:45 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Waynesville. Summer Music Quest is open to singers first through ninth grades in the fall. They will be divided into age groups to participate in a variety of musical experiences. Campers will learn to sing with proper vocal technique and in two and three part harmony.


On Saturday, May 26, Allstar Weekend, a young American pop band, will take the stage at the Great Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $27.

Allstar Weekend gained its popularity from the Disney Channel television network when they competed on Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing.” The group came in second place but signed a contract with Hollywood Records a few months later. Their debut single, “A Different Side of Me,” peaked at the top of Radio Disney singles chart and jumpstarted their career. When they released their debut album in 2010, “Suddenly Yours,” they emerged as one of the most promising young bands around. Their performances tell a story and maintain an element of fun that entertains music lovers of all ages.
