The 9th annual Kids & Company Rising Star Drama Camp will be held July 15-19 at the Wilmington College Kelly Center.

This week-long theatre-intensive camp welcomes children 6 to 10 years of age and meets from 9 a.m.-noon each day. There will be a showcase at noon on Friday for parents and family to attend.

Rising Star Drama Camp offers children the chance to create their own costumes, write their own plays, and act in them as well.

For the second year, Karie Gipson and The Gigglebox Theatre Experience will be leading the camp.

She is a passionate child educator with a background in children’s puppet theater and children’s education. From 1999 to 2007 she was an actor, director, and consultant for Madcap Productions Puppet Theater in Cincinnati.

Karie has a B.A. in Theatre from Wilmington College.
