Do you like Improv games? In this brand new camp, learn about what makes these Improv games so fun and how the world of Improv relates to the world of Theater!

The camp will culminate in an Improv show for family and friends to attend.

 

TEACHING ARTIST: Suzanne Clifton-Walsh

Suzanne Clifton Walsh is a Theatre Specialist.

After studying Acting at Eugene O'Neill National Theatre Institute & Connecticut College, she transferred to NYU where she graduated with a BA & MA in Educational Theatre.

She has taught drama and public speaking to students of all ages. She has also directed numerous musicals and plays. Her 40 year teaching career in New York City included the founding of a very popular summer multi-arts program called CREATIVE ARTS. Supervising a staff of 50 artists and an enrollment of about 200 children, Suzanne also instituted a Guest Artist program for the campers. Renowned actors, musicians, athletes and costume designers visited the camp and shared their experiences at daily Noontime Shows!

Suzanne always looked forward to visiting Bay Street during the summer. But now that she has recently relocated to Water Mill as a full time resident, she is excited to be more involved at Bay Street.
