SUMMER CAMP

Acting Camp: Grades 4-6

Session 33

Script: ICU: Hide & Seek

During this fun-filled week, students will develop their acting skills through direct teaching, exciting improvisations, and preparing an original, one-act play called ICU: Hide & Seek. This original one-act medical comedy shows the craziest day in a Nursing School Simulation Lab. Before Nurses have actual patients, they practice caring for Standardized Patients played by actors. Actors who can’t call in sick to work because they go to work to play sick! Complete with a hypochondriac, billionaires, a Shakespeare enthusiast, sleepwalking, and an adorable allergy-producing Pekingese. The camp week culminates with the students performing their play ON STAGE for family and friends to enjoy.
