NEWS & Events

FACT 2023 has a new look.

We need to change things up a bit this year because of expected renovations to the Opera House. So what was previously called "Camp One" at Bessie Rowell Community Center will now be a Theatre Workshop camp; they will engage in theatre games and performance techniques, and will offer a short presentation of their work at Bessie Rowell on the last day of the camp, July 26. Students enrolled in the Parks and Recreation summer program should register for the Theatre Workshop through that program.

What was previously called "Camp Two" will now be called Performance Camp at the Opera House, and participants will rehearse and perform Disney's Finding Nemo JR on August 4-5.
