Summer Youth Musical Workshop with Will Ogmundson and Tom Dunn 

Week long workshop with performances at the end of the week!

Alchemists' Workshop is in its 17th year of offering musical theatre camps for area young people. Lending Doll is an original work by New London composer Will Ogmundson and Henniker playwright Thomas Dunn. This summer's 3 presentations at the end of the week long camp will include adjudications by theatre professionals from around the state as part of the NH Theatre Awards program.

While putting together this story about a doll that saved a library the campers will be working on acting, improvisation, dance, music and some visual arts both individually with the directors and designers and in groups. The goal of each of our camps is to have fun and help introduce our campers to (or deepen experiences in) the world of musical theatre.
