Camp Half Blood Outdoor Immersive Children's Theatre
Seeking performers for an outdoor immersive children’s LARP (live-action role playing)
adventure for summer camp program,
Actors play larger than life mythological characters set in the modern-day, not far from the Percy Jackson universe (think Hermes in running shorts instead of a toga). Each week you could be a God, a Hero, a Villain, a Monster, a Nymph, an Oracle, or a combination of these. Everyone must feel comfortable engaging groups of kids, ages 6-12, in improvised in-character dialogue and LARP, or boffer-style, combat (with safe foam weapons) in an outdoor environment on Quest Day, a once-a-week full-day adventure. The ensemble will consist of a team of actors who collaborate with a Quest Director to bring each storyline to life for their particular camp location
Inspired by the world of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and The Olympians novels, Camp Half-Blood is at the heart of Plato Learning’s mission, 'Adventure Powered by Story.' By bringing tales from mythology, history, and fiction to life, we plunge our campers into the center of the action. They are transported to another world and given the chance to prove themselves as Legendary Heroes.
We don’t just re-stage these age-old tales, we re-frame and re-purpose them into something new that our campers can experience for the first time. There are (foam) sword-fights, puzzles, negotiations, and performance challenges as they journey to complete their heroic Quest.
Minimum time commitment of 10 hours/week for the summer camp season.
Pre-season training and rehearsal time will be compensated.
Camp season length is dependent on location.
