Hart Theatre at the JCC

Join us at TYKEs as we write and perform our own mock television commercials and PSAs advertising ideal future inventions, discoveries and cures, complete with some clever home-made visual aids. We’ll have a very productive day, perhaps curing bee stings, discovering life on Saturn, or inventing flying homes – the sky’s the limit, fueled by kids’ fun and powerful imaginations. We’ll record our final performances and send the footage home for loved ones to enjoy!

Cost: $74 JCC Members: $63 Gesher participants: $53

A sneak peek at Veteran’s Day J-Cation camp on Friday, November 10:

During this brand new TYKEs program, we’ll build our own original hand-made marionettes from scratch! Once our construction is complete, we’ll perform a series of fun improv scenes starring our new creations. Campers take home their marionettes for future living room encore presentations! A super-fun day for crafty kids who love performing.

And... December break TYKEs J-Cation Camp:

Tuesday, Dec 26-Friday, Dec 29, 7am-6pm (no camp Dec 25)

Join us for one day, all four days or any amount in between as we watch and analyze some of the finest kids’ films ever made – oldies and modern movies, live action and animated features. We’ll compare films and look at important theatrical elements including plot and theme, conflict, lighting and camera techniques, music and sound effects, costume and sets, and much more.

We’ll also get some exercise at the InZone and enjoy swim time in the indoor heated pool. Popcorn included, of course!
