This summer, Hipp Kids will bring a story to life on the Hippodrome’s second stage. During each one-week session, campers will exercise their bodies, voices and imaginations while learning their roles and developing their characters. They’ll have fun collaborating on behind-the-scenes elements of props, costumes, sets and lights. Then, each Friday, when each camp performs their play, we’ll all delight in what they create and share with us on stage at the Hipp!
