This summer, the University of Central Oklahoma has a way for young kids to beat the heat, and still use their imagination, with its annual summer Drama Day Camp.

Going on through the end of June, these camps offer children classes in:
" acting,
" stage combat,
" theater craft building, and
" voice and movement.

The kids piece together a play to perform for their friends and family at the end of the week.

INSTRUCTION
In the stage combat classes, counselors will teach campers sequences in fist fighting and swordplay, as well as how to fall on stage realistically. Theater craft building classes will show kids how to assemble their own costumes and build props for the sets in their plays.

"We'll have 10 kids per group, and each group will perform a show," Dottie De Leon, camp director, said.

The plays will last 10 to 12 minutes long and will have a grand finale at the end, where all the children in the camp sing and dance a song together.

"One of the things that we really like about our camp is that we keep the classes small, and everyone gets a good role," De Leon said.

All campers also receive hands-on instruction in each of the areas. The camp is available for kids ages 7-12 and costs $75 per week. To register or for more information, call 974-5151 or visit. "CJ Macklin
