The Call of the Matterhorn
Designed for students at all levels of theatre experience, campers will audition, rehearse, and perform a musical alongside three professional teaching artists...in one week!
The Call of the Matterhorn is a brand new production with a script by Katie Colletta and original music by Jason Sifford.
The Adventure of a Lifetime
High above the foothills of the Swiss alps, one snowy mountain towers above them all – a mountain only for the bravest of heart. Join us for a musical adventure filled with magic, mystery, and tests of true character! Together we’ll climb to the highest peak. Only one question remains… will YOU answer The Call of the Matterhorn?
A Performance for Your Community
The Call of the Matterhorn culminates in a public performance of our one-act musical for members of your community. We'll prepare the kids — we'll even bring the costumes, sets, and songs! You sell tickets, throw open the doors, and welcome the crowd!
The Footliters Traveling Playhouse Experience
We believe theatre is for everyone. Each student receives a role, a costume, and the support they need to shine in this performance. Our team has decades of experience creating welcoming, engaging children's theatre programs.
From the first rehearsal to the final curtain, we believe theatre should be educational. We'll be teaching every student skills like projection, improvisation, creative problem solving, and how to work together to tell a story. We'll also be learning about the Alps, and exploring some of the most fascinating (and daring!) corners of the mountain ecosystem!
A Note about COVID
We understand! Right now, everything is different. Our goal is to make Footliters Traveling Playhouse the right fit for your needs. The capacity for Summer 2022 has been returned to 60 students per camp. Although we can't take more students than that, you can choose to limit registrations based on your COVID precautions. Our teaching artists will generally rehearse with masks. We encourage communities to encourage masking during rehearsals to protect students and teaching artists. However, we do not require that all students be masked during rehearsal or performance.
