The Topeka Civic Theatre and Academy has a busy summer with new shows running now as well as two children’s theatre camps still open for enrollment.
Red, White and Tuna is a Fourth of July themed show that takes place in Tuna, Texas. The comedy features only two male actors that play the dozens of roles that make up the production. It runs May 31 through June 22. Tickets are on sale now.
Pageant Play tickets are also on sale now. This is a studio show that runs June 21 through June 29. This production pokes fun at the cut-throat world of child beauty pageants.
Also, enrolling for two summer camps is still open. The Helen Hocker camps in Gage Park are two week camps with three sessions. Kids learn learn basic acting, dancing, singing performance and production skills. There are a variety of sessions with different themes, from creating a script they will perform to putting a show together to take on the road. The Helen Hocker camps started Monday. Parents can still sign up children for the current camp as well as two more sessions later this summer.
The Topeka Civic Theatre and Academy camps are similar. There are several dates, times and sessions available on the TCTA website.
