School is officially out for the summer, but the doors of the La Cañada Playhouse, La Cañada High School’s theater, are open and filled with youngsters for the Summer Acting Camp, which began Monday.
The Summer Acting Camp has been produced by the Theatrical Education Group, based out of Los Angeles, and Justin Eick, LCHS’ theater director and the Theatrical Education Group’s artistic director, for the past 14 years. The Camp originated in Glendale but has been at La Cañada High for the past three years.
“I am so excited. It’s without a doubt one of our biggest years in recent memory,” with about 100 kids signing up for the Camp this year, Eick said. “I really feel this is going to be a great year.”
This year will mark the first time that the Camp gets full use of the La Cañada Playhouse. Many of the Summer Acting Camp participants, ages 5 to 15, will be taking the stage for the first time.
