Musical Theatre Camp to End with Public Performance

RELEASED: July 13, 2009

EAU CLAIRE — High school students in grades 9 through 12 participating in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Clearwater Musical Theatre Camp July 12-17 will present a free one-hour performance July 17, at 5 p.m. in the Riverside Theatre of the Haas Fine Arts Center. The performance will be open to the public.

The third annual camp is directed by Dr. Mitra Sadeghpour, director of the UW-Eau Claire Opera Workshop and coordinator of the voice/choral division in the university's department of music and theatre arts.

The show's theme is based on colors and their representation through musical theatre. The performance includes five large musical numbers, several solos, duets and other small ensemble pieces.

Eighteen high school students are participating in the camp, which includes daily choreography sessions, intensive work on music and individual scenes, and presentations of special topics ranging from auditioning and stage makeup to attending college as a college music or theatre arts major.

"The camp provides a lot of information and demands that they learn a lot in a small amount of time," Sadeghpour said.

Sadeghpour will be assisted by C. Max Athorn, a 2007 UW-Eau Claire theatre arts and music graduate, and by current UW-Eau Claire students Johnathan Turba and Alicia Fitchett. Turba will serve as the camp pianist and Fitchett as the camp choreographer.
