Monday, June 26, 2023
Doors: 1pm | Performance: 1pm

Intro to Improv! with Dylan Kranch

In this camp, budding young performers will discover the fundamentals of improvisational theatre! Exploring aspects of mime, gibberish, character, and thinking on your feet, campers will gain important knowledge that every great actor needs! This camp will be fun, exciting, and especially unpredictable!

Teaching Artist DYLAN KRANCH is so excited to return to Arts Smarts for his third year! A graduate of Millersville University, Dylan now teaches English at Manheim Township High School. As an actor, his career spans regional and college shows. Some of his favorite credits include Dancing at Lughnasa (Irene Ryan Nomination for Best Actor), Radium Girls, And Then There Were None, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Bye Bye Birdie. As a teaching artist, he has worked with the Millersville University Storytelling Experience (M.U.S.E.), teaching the Neighborhood Bridges Curriculum developed by The Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis. Dylan is currently going into his third year as an assistant director for the M-Uth Theatre Program at the Ware Center. Dylan is so excited that he gets to make a career out of his two passions, theatre and teaching. He would like to share with our young minds the following quote: “The things that make you different are the things that make you, you.”- Piglet


Registration is now open for ARTS SMARTS Camps, offered through The Arts at Millersville University at the Ware Center, in downtown Lancaster. For two weeks starting June 19 and June 26, Arts at MU will present 12 unique camps per each week in morning and afternoon sessions for young campers in Music, Theatre or Visual Arts. The Ware Center is located at 42 N Prince Street, Lancaster, PA. 
These camps have been created especially for children in two grade-level ranges: (rising) Kindergarten–Grade 2 and (rising) Grades 3-5. Each camp is different, and there are morning and afternoon options for both grade-level ranges and in all three disciplines – Music, Theatre, and/or Visual Arts.  And the camps are open to children of all abilities. 

Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both!  (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.)  Morning and afternoon snacks are provided.   Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity.  On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week.   Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff.   

The staff is comprised of a team of professional teaching artists and Millersville University Arts Education students who have full clearance for working with children. 
Camps are $125 for a 1/2 day session, per week, per child. We offer full and partial scholarships. Please email Barry.Kornhauser@Millersville.edu to inquire about scholarship options.
