Summer Camp 2023

Hippodrome Theatre’s Summer Spectacular proudly presents The Jungle Book. Our young campers will perform this thrilling adaptation of the classic adventure tale on our mainstage. Mowgli, a clever child, believes he is just as mighty as any wolf in his pack. However, when he discovers his true human identity, he must reconcile these contrasting selves and determine whether to stay with the pack or return to the human world of his birth. What path will he take? Can he learn the Law of the Jungle in time to conquer Shere Khan, the dreaded beast?

Florida history is filled with stories of misfits seeking refuge, and our story is no different: Omie is a perpetual dreamer who can’t seem to find a place in the world, so she builds her own from junk. Nearby, Tuesday spends his days dressing up as a Wild Man to frighten travelers at a tourist trap.  A chance encounter begins a quick friendship between the two outsiders.

Set in the “Old Weird Florida” of the post-war years, Haint Blues pulls from history, rumor, and legend to tell a sprawling tale of sideshow performers, tabloid monsters, mediums and spirits, all set to a soundtrack of jazz and blues.

Once upon a time in the deep South, many people painted their porch ceilings a specific shade of Haint Blue, a soft blue-green, to ward off evil spirits called “haints.” It’s especially common in the historic homes around Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina. Although ghosts and goblins might not be front-of-mind for modern homeowners, many continue the tradition of blue porch ceilings to keep ties to their home’s Southern charm
