Gateway Theatre hosts first virtual summer camp

Richmond’s Gateway Theatre is accepting registration for their first online summer camp.

Summer camps will focus on musicals as well as a variety of theatre skills and elements to explore creativity and self-expression, according to Gateway’s website.

The theatre's virtual camp will focus on the world of musicals, which will be led musical educator and choreographer Nicol Spinola.

Students will explore acting skills and other aspects of musical theatre through class activities and discussions.

Virtual camps are being offered to children ages 11 to 13 from July 20 to 24.

Meanwhile, an in-person camp will be held for children ages eight to 13 with a registration limit of 12 students.

Under the guidance of Manami Hara, one of Gateway Academy's instructors, kids will learn to express their creativity through character creation in a collaborative environment.

The camp will take place in the Mountainview Room at Quilchena Golf and Country Club from July 13 to 17.

Safety protocols will be put in place to ensure the safety for all students, faculty and staff during the in-person summer camps.
