The Mississippi Bend Players will offer a week's theatre camp for children age 7 and up: "Lights, Hollywood, Action!"

This camp is designed to give children the chance to work and perform with three professional actors from The Old Creamery Theatre while they rehearse and present a new play.

"Lights, Hollywood, Action!" is a musical set in the golden age of the silver screen with all the glitz, glam, and glory of old Hollywood. Performances will be at 2 p.m. on June 29, and 10:30 a.m. June 30 at Augustana's Brunner Theatre Center.

Registration is first-come, first-served, up to 60 actors. Everyone will be cast in the show.

Camp runs from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. each day, and children should bring a sack lunch.

Children must commit to attending all rehearsals and both final performances. 

The registration deadline is June 1.

The camp fee is $125 per child. Send a check or bring payment on the first day of camp. (We cannot accept credit card payment at this time.) Checks should be made out to Augustana College. Send payment to Augustana College Theatre, 639 38th St., Rock Island, Ill., 61201.

For more information, email or call Christina Myatt, 309-794-7611.

The Old Creamery Theatre reserves the right to use and reproduce the likenesses of campers.
