Kids-N-Co

Kids-N-Co educates and involves young people of all backgrounds in the theater arts. Their programs foster self-esteem and self-discovery by emphasizing discipline, integrity, team-building, and communication skills in a positive environment that promotes creativity. Kids-N-Co promotes access to theater arts for families who do not have regular access to the theater. They serve more than 25,000 young people and their families every year through their five main stage productions, education programs, and outreach projects.

As El Paso’s only non-profit, educational community theater for families and young people, First Presbyterian Church is proud to provide space for this group to meet and perform. With our theatrical and performance center, we can serve the community’s young people and their families through entertaining live performances, and help them build a bridge of understanding between both generations and cultures.

In addition, the theater’s presence has become a unifying creative outlet for children, artists, and patrons in the community, through fostering ethics of teamwork for productions, building confidence in areas like public speaking and performing, and as a space where all of our neighbors can enjoy fellowship and appreciate activities that celebrate all of our differences.

As a non-profit, that means this community outreach program is only successful thanks to the donations and support from the community. The connection that we, First Presbyterian Church, provide to the community opens doors for the potential of this theatre group that otherwise might not exist. That’s exactly why we do it.

Looking for something fun & dramatic to do with your kids this summer? Try theater! Now in it's 31st year of running theater camps, KNC can boast about being the longest running summer camp in the city!

Registration is now open. This year KNC is focusing on improving skills at all age levels by breaking down Production Camps and Musical Theater Camp for kids and for teens. The schedule is as follows:

• Production Camp 1 – June 10-July 7, 12:30-4:30 p.m.; performances are July 5, 6 & 7
• Production Camp 2 – July 8-Aug 4, 12:30-4:30 p.m.; performances are Aug 2,3 & 4
• Musical Theater Camp – June 17-July 14 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; performances are July 12, 13 & 14
• Kinder Camp 1 – June 17-June 28, 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., with a performance on June 28
• Kinder Camp 2 – July 15-July 26, 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., with a performance on July 26
• Costume Design & Sewing – weekly classes throughout the Summer

Production Camps 1 & 2 are separated into two groups: Production for Kids (ages 8-11) and Production for Teens (ages 12-15). Students will learn all the skills required to put on a full stage production. From backstage to front of house, all students will learn aspects of technical theatre and acting, including costuming, scenic building, and lights and sound. Camp will end with a full production created by the students and taught by Vanessa Keyser. Public performances will be presented on the final weekend of each camp.

Musical Theater Camp is separated into two groups: MTC Kids (ages 8-11) and MTC Teens (ages 12-15). Classes are designed to challenge the musical theater actor according to their skill level. The camp will culminate in productions that are suited for each age group. Each group will delve into acting, singing, dancing, choreography, costumes, and make-up. Musical Theater Camp for Kids (ages 8-11) will focus on acting through singing, vocal work and choreography through Disney music. Musical Theater Camp for Teens (12-15) will be a workshop experience with a focus on acting in a musical setting and will culminate in the musical “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.” MTC Teens will be taught by Anthony Michael Stokes; MTC Kids will be taught by Emily James & Raul Chavez. Public performances will be presented the final weekend of camp.

Kinder Camps 1 & 2 are for kids ages 5-7. The young thespians learn how to feel comfortable on stage by learning theater games through which they begin to get an understanding of improvisation. They will also work on music by singing nursery rhymes and children’s songs. During the process, they will work towards putting on a short play, written specifically for the students and performed at the end of the session. Kinder Camp 1 will be taught by Vanessa Payan. Kinder Camp 2 will be taught by Raul Chavez.

All camps are at KIDS-N-CO. on the campus of First Presbyterian Church, 1340 Murchison. Tuition is $300 for Production Camp, and Musical Theater Camp, and $200 for Kinder Camp. Discounts are available for people attending multiple camps, or for families with siblings attending camp.

Registration can be done by phone, or online at www.kidsn.co/enroll (an online fee will be assessed).
