Led by instructors Scott Fisher and Katie Jones, ACA’s theatre camp will offer instruction in acting, creative drama, writing and puppetry, with local artists joining to teach master classes in music, improvisation or movement.

Campers will have an opportunity to use each of these techniques across the week when they collaboratively adapt, enact and modernize a folktale to be presented on the final day of this unique camp.

About the Instructors:

Scott Fisher moved to Asheville in 2007, and considers himself a successful transplant.  He has put his BA in Theatre Arts to good use in the last 10 years, mostly with The Magnetic Theatre, Attic Salt Theatre Company, and Different Strokes Performing Arts Collective.  Scott enjoys acting, singing, writing, directing, lighting, and costuming.  During the daytime hours, he is a teacher with Asheville City Schools, where he has been "acting like a teacher" for the last six years.  Scott is very excited about combining his two passions, teaching and theatre, to launch this new summer camp.
