A.C.O.R.N Theatre Camp promotes and fosters
Artistry, Communication, Opportunity, Resourcefulness and Nurture.
In an outdoor retreat-style environment for the deaf and hard of hearing middle school and high school aged students use theatre craft to encourage pride, self-esteem, and independence.
Last year we tackled with bullies in "Oliver Button Is a Sissy". This year, students will be learning how to deal with tolerance through the charming picture-book "Stellaluna" written by Janell Cannon.
In the story, a mother fruit bat loves her baby named Stellaluna very much and would never let anything happen to her. Knocked from her mother’s safe embrace by an attacking owl, Stellaluna lands headfirst in a bird’s nest. This adorable baby fruit bat’s world is literally turned upside down when she is adopted by the occupants of the nest and adapts to their peculiar bird habits. The baby bat ends up in a bird’s nest filled with three baby birds named Pip, Flitter and Flap. The student will turn this moving tale of a lost little bat that learns a big lesson about friendship into a live performance.
Directed and lead by A.C.O.R.N founders and actors Camille Jeter-Lorello and Frank Dattolo. Participants will learn more than just the art of theatre, but the A.R.T. of life: Adjust, Respect and Teamwork!
