In service of our mission and community, The SAPPHIRE is offering virtual programming during this pandemic, designed to bring meaningful, engaging content to audiences in need at a safe social distance. In addition, we are able to adapt many of The SAPPHIRE’s ongoing programs to a virtual stage.
CYBER SAPPHIRES: An Online Virtual Theatre Camp
The Sapphire Theatre Company’s professional teaching artists bring drama to your living room in this live interactive theatre camp that takes place safely at home. Designed to fully engage students with both peer contact and professional coaching, this camp introduces acting techniques and tools culminating in a week-end performance for an invited audience.
Whether a student’s interest lies in building audition and performance skills, or simply building confidence and camaraderie during challenging times, this camp will fill a void this summer. Because students will be coached individually as well as in small groups, all skill levels are welcome from beginners to experienced thespians.
