theatre camp

The Mississippi Bend Players will offer a week's theatre camp for children age 7 and up: "A Mystery at Mimsley Manor" June 19-23.

This camp is designed to give children the chance to work and perform with three professional actors from The Old Creamery Theatre while they rehearse and present a new play.

"A Mystery at Mimsley Manor" is a new musical of suspicion and intrigue in which everyone is a suspect and the audience tries to crack the mystery.

Registration is first-come, first-served, up to 60 actors. Everyone will be cast in the show.

Camp runs from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. each day, and children should bring a sack lunch.

Children must commit to attending all rehearsals and both final performances. These are at 7 p.m. June 23 and 2 p.m. June 24 at the Brunner Theatre Center on campus.

The camp fee is $100 per child. Send a check to or bring payment on the first day of camp. (We cannot accept credit card payment at this time.) Send payment to Augustana College Theatre, 639 38th St., Rock Island, Ill., 61201.
