Drama Kids and Bricks 4 Kids Join Forces in Summer Camp

Share Article

"Star Wars Theater", an exciting new children's summer camp venture this August 12-16 in Wilmington, Delaware, is a unique collaboration of Drama Kids Wilmington, the children's drama program, and Bricks 4 Kidz, a Lego building program which are two of the most popular after school educational programs in the region.

Campers will be challenged in group and individual improvisation, script creation, Lego® building of set pieces, props, and characters, speech, movement, and play production. At the end of the week, there will be performances of campers’ original plays based on Star Wars.

Through much of the school year, Drama Kids and Bricks 4 Kidz operate separately as they compete for the enrollment of students in their after school programs. Jason and Kate Domanski, who own Bricks 4 Kidz , note that both of their programs have loyal students and parents who rave about their respective programs. But rarely do Bricks 4 Kidz and Drama Kids attract the same students.

“Sometimes people think that the world of engineering in Lego® building has nothing to do with the arts. This camp is a demonstration that theater and physics can work together and be lots of fun,” says Roger Hawkins, owner of Drama Kids Wilmington. “We’re taking the best of Drama Kids and the best of Bricks 4 Kidz and putting them together. And both of us provide the environment for healthy, positive, good old fashioned play.” Domanski adds, “we are finding our perfect common ground in the Star Wars saga. I grew up loving Star Wars. There is a great story, cool characters, and gorgeous technology. It’s a great theme for both of our programs to use as our focus.” Hawkins and Domanski agree that the new camp will offer the same level of quality parents have come to expect from each of their other programs.

Both Drama Kids Wilmington and Bricks 4 Kidz offer other camps of their own this summer to a variety of ages. Interested parents are encouraged to contact Drama Kids and Bricks 4 Kidz for more information.

“Star Wars© Theater” takes place at Brandywine Valley Baptist Church at 7 Mt. Lebanon Rd in North Wilmington. It runs from 9am to 4pm for ages 6-12.
