SCAC grant supports Claflin campers’ ‘Aladdin Jr.’ performance
Here’s a brief grantee spotlight from The Times & Democrat:
Claflin University is hosting an intensive residential camp designed to provide high-level artistic instruction to youth entering grades six through 10 in a college environment. It is funded through a S.C. Arts Commission arts education grant.
The camp will conclude on Saturday, June 16 with a musical theater production of Disney’s “Aladdin Jr.”
Claflin University Intensive (CUSAI) Residential Camp participants are taking classes led by college professors in acting, art (graphic design and jewelry making), dance, music and video production while preparing for the culminating musical theatre production featuring music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Chad Beguelin, and book by Chad Beguelin.
Participants are also mentored by college students majoring in one of the artistic disciplines.
