MIH Summer Program

Performing arts courses are designed to develop imagination, teach communication skills and encourage self-confidence. Participants will discover many methods of expression from improvisational exercises, sound and motion, to pantomime. They will develop characters and watch them come alive on stage.

Make It Happen Theatre Company has the exciting opportunity to collaborate with the Birmingham Civil Rights (BCRI) Institute for an innovative educational performing arts program that teaches Civil Rights History during a summer Drama Day Camp. The objective of this program is to explore the importance of expression for today’s youth and the different ways one can communicate physically, verbally, musically and overall, artistically to present important historical stories through the performing arts. The program will culminate in a live performance, giving each student a voice to boost their confidence, which will inspire a lifetime of purpose-driven accomplishments.
