TWISP Two week-long drama camps are planned this summer by The Merc Playhouse, 101 S. Glover St.
Sessions are July 15-19 and Aug. 5-9.
The camps, designed for children ages 8 and older, focus on performance, with training in acting, singing and dancing.
Participants will have the opportunity to build and design set pieces and costumes.
Days are fun and varied, with opportunities for campers to both work in an ensemble and shine on their own.

Megan Fox Hicks will lead the camps. She appeared as Lucy in The Merc’s 2010 production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.”
She has been involved with dance and theater since age 3. She has a degree in theater education and teaches drama at Kalles Junior High School in Puyallup.
Camp hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, with a culminating performance at 4 p.m. each Friday.
Participants will provide their own lunch, which will be eaten in the park each day for an opportunity to get outside.
The cost is $200 per week.
A non-refundable $50 deposit is required, with the balance due before the first day of camp.
Some partial scholarships are available.
