About the play:
US A Teen History is a walk through American history, from Plymouth Rock to the internet, all told through the eyes of teenagers.
This story theatre-style show is a compilation of scenes, songs, skits and monologues about the great tapestry that is America. And, like American history, it’s funny, tragic, dramatic and strange. It’s an insight into those who never made the pages of the history books, the teens who helped shape a nation.
Did you know that some of the drummer boys in the Revolutionary War were as young as 11? Or that Caroline Pickersgill was only 14 when she sewed more than a million stitches into the flag that inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner”? Or that Sacagawea was 16 with a baby when she helped Lewis and Clark (who somehow remind us of Bill and Ted) map the western territories? Adults made the history books, but plenty of teens helped make history.=

This update reflects a change in location for the final performance for the children. They will now be performing on the stage at NCRT! It also finalizes the date and time of the final performance.
This is a rare opportunity; taught by professionals in the movie and entertainment industry who are coming to Eureka just to lead this camp.
In this camp, your children will go far beyond learning how to act, write, or present themselves with confidence, but will also gain valuable life skills that apply to all stages of life while learning theater games, acting, singing, movement, and other basic theater stagecraft.
Campers will help to produce a short play that will be performed for family, friends, and community members at the end of the session at the NCRT.
