Faery Camp

ages 6-12

  Campers will rehearse and perform "Faery Free for All" live on stage.

 Scotland’s magical faery folk, both friendly and fearsome, gather in a moonlit meadow to learn from each other how to be naughty and nice.  A variety of pixies, brownies, and sprites tussle with a banshee, wraith, bogles and trows, while two teenage human captives plan their escape.  The combined forces of the Summer and Winter Courts are no match for mortals, though, when the faeries mess with a determined farm wife and a bossy baker. 

  This rough and tumble, rollicking comedy incorporates two traditional Scottish faery tales:  “The Changeling” and “The Bossy Baker Woman.”

Jungle Camp 

July 19 - 23

ages 6-12

$265

  Campers will rehearse and perform "Jungle Book" live on stage.

 Come hear the incredible non-musical tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves.  With the help of his friends — the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera and the python Kaa — Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle.  Some of the jungle boy’s adventures are gripping, like the time he encounters the hooded cobra who guards the treasure vault in the Deserted City.  Others, like the coconut-tossing monkeys who take him prisoner, are hysterical.  But the jungle is also dangerous, for it is the home of Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger who has vowed to destroy Mowgli.  With his fawning jackal follower, Shere Khan plots to take control of the jungle.  Mowgli must use all his strength and courage to stop Shere Khan before it is too late.

Alien Camp 

July 26 - 30

ages 6-12

$265

  Campers will rehearse and perform "The Day Aliens Attacked Fairfield" live on stage.

 Fairfield’s a place where nothing ever happens, at least not since Billy Myers got that nasty papercut a decade ago.  And with the exception of a pair of vain newscasters, a few fringe skywatchers, and a kooky grandfather living in a galactically fantastic past, most townsfolk are okay with their humdrum ways.  Like it or not, though, the winds of change are about to descend on Fairfield faster than a delivery from the town’s famous Flying Saucer Pizza.

A couple of love-struck teens report an alien sighting, and Fairfield finds itself in a frenzy.  Luckily, the members of SAWPE (that’s the Society of Alien Watchers to Protect Earth) are selling tinfoil hats to help protect everyone.

IMPACT OF COVID ON PYT CAMPS & PERFORMANCES

  The state of COVID in Chatham county will determine performance venue(s) and social distancing followed in rehearsals and performances. PYT will always act to assure campers are as protected as possible during camp days and performances. We expect that vaccinations will continue to increase mitigating the risk of COVID for campers, staff and their families. Further, we expect that the warmer summer months will lessen the severity of outbreaks in our area specifically.

COVID-19 Rules For In-person PYT Activities

Pittsboro Youth Theater (PYT) has established and will enforce the following COVID-19 rules. We consider this our responsibility in preventing the spread of COVID-19. 

 

When PYT determines with input from cast member families that in-person rehearsals will begin, those rehearsals will be mandatory for all cast members affected.

Until COVID-19 regulations are eased, all in-person cast member rehearsals and performances will be conducted according to the following:

OUTSIDE - All in-person cast activities will be outside, weather permitting, or be cancelled.

SOCIAL DISTANCING - Cast members must stay 6-feet away from others not in their immediate household during the entire time they are at or near the PYT activity. This includes before, during and after official PYT activities.

MASKSCast members must wear a mask over their mouth and nose at all times at or near the location of the PYT activity. This includes before, during and after official PYT activities. One exception to this mask rule is that the cast members of "Heal 2020" may remove their mask while actively speaking or singing during performances.

VACCINE - Once a COVID vaccine which is certified "safe and effective" becomes available to us, the PYT crew, we will get vaccinated. This will support our goal of safely rehearsing and performing plays on stage in Sweet Bee Theater. We highly encourage cast members and their families to do the same. In this way we can all enjoy live performance theater the way it was supposed to be performed. Whoo Hooo!!!
