February School Vacation Kids Camp

February 18
through February 20

Bay Street Theatre is pleased to announce its upcoming February School Vacation Kids Camp, February 18, 19 and 20. The camp is for students age 8 through 12, and runs from 9am – 3 pm each day at the Bay Street Theatre. Cost is $255 for the three-day camp per child.

This is the first time the camp will last only 3 days, due to the additional school time rescheduled by the Sag Harbor School District because of the hurricane. The camps will be led by Susan Galardi and Bethany Dellapolla, and include instruction in acting, singing, dance, performance & more. In addition, there are fun, creative theater games and improvs to help develop skills and to encourage students to stretch their abilities as young actors. Students will learn standard songs and choreography, and are also encouraged to create their own original work. The camp ends in a performance at the theater for friends and family.

"The sheer fun of improv comedy and acting exercises, or learning a song or developing a short theater piece, engages children in problem solving, creative thinking, and collaboration," says Galardi. "Through simple character study, they walk in someone else's shoes and gain insight into themselves and others."

A graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University and the Manhattan School of Music (Vocal Performance), Susan Galardi is a singer/actor/songwriter/playwright and a member of Actors’ Equity. As a performer, Susan was cast as the lead in many off-Broadway musicals and opera workshops in New York. She performed her original one-woman show, directed by Betty Buckley, in NYC and the Hamptons. In the Hamptons, Susan was cast as Miss Maudie in the Equity production of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD at the Bay Street Theater; read leading dramatic roles in Naked Stage productions at Guild Hall; and played a leading role in her original children's musical, WHO IS NATALIE SPOO?, for which she wrote the book, lyrics and music for the 10-person musical. Susan also wrote book/lyrics/music for her musical LIVING PROOF, produced three times in New York City to critical praise. In the area of improv/comedy, Susan appeared in many pre-taped sketch comedy spots on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "Comedy Central".

Bethany Dellapolla will lead improv and acting exercises, and teaches all dance and choreography. She received her BA in both Theatre Performance and Radio/Television Production from SUNY New Paltz. She also graduated (with honors), from Long Island University with a Masters Degree in Childhood Education and teaches, choreographs, and directs various theatre camps, productions, and classes throughout the island and Manhattan. She is a proud member of the new SAG-AFTRA alliance! Regional and NYC Acting Credits include: THE GRADUATE (Elaine Robinson), THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE (Olive Ostrovsky), CABARET (Frenchie/Lady #2), THE LARAMIE PROJECT (Romaine, et al), COMPANY (Jenny), RUTHLESS! (Lita Encore), THE NEW WORLD (Featured Vocalist, NYC) and THE MISS FIRECRACKER CONTEST (Popeye, NYC).

There are just a few spots remaining, and the camps always sell out. Cost is $255 for the three-day camp per child. For payment and more information, please call Jessica Lemire at 631-725-0818 ext. 129.
