ENSEMBLE THEATRE & BUILDING ROX PRESENT:  
THE HEIGHTS PERFORMING ARTS CAMP! 

A platform for fostering the creative potential of all children. We all want to know that the world we live in is possibly bigger than we realize.  That there is more that exists for us….a sense of awe. We want to give kids a chance to experience magic, and to believe and know that they have not yet begun to touch their capabilities or experience what the world has in store for them.  We want to give kids more. Through theatre.
And we need your help.

Building Rox represents a group of Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District parents supported through the RoxEl PTA and dedicated to facilitating a safe, inclusive, community-focused school environment for all students through outreach and programming.  While traditionally Building Rox has impacted students at RoxEl and Rox Middle, our current project seeks to foster the creative potential of a broader elementary audience throughout the entire district.  

Ensemble Theatre, housed in the Coventry School Building, is dedicated to the responsible production of works that celebrate the human spirit.  Their guiding principles include a commitment to non-traditional casting and to providing culturally diverse programming that speaks to issues of contemporary life.  Educational and outreach activities impact youth and underserved populations through classes as well as resident and touring performances.

Using criteria developed by Building Rox and Ensemble Theatre, we successfully completed the first three week camp this past summer! This camp culminated in a performance in the Alma Theatre at Cain Park on Saturday August 5th, 2017. This camp, led by Ensemble Theatre, is called “Heights Performing Arts Camp”.  We seek to offer a yearly summer opportunity to children in the district who may not otherwise be exposed to a rich, theatre arts experience. The camp will be offered again in the summer of 2018 so stay tuned!! 

We would like to acknowledge and thank those who have supported us already!  A Special Thank you to:

ROX ARTS, Barbara Schubert, Dallas Schubert, Danny J. & Joy A. Kump, and The Holland Family.  

We will look forward to working with the residential and commercial Cleveland Heights community to continue support for this and future summer camps through donations and sponsorships keeping this camp FREE for the students. We greatly appreciate your consideration of our request and your expressed enthusiasm for this endeavor.
