He has also performed in many regional performances including In the Heights, Into the Woods, Little Shop of Horrors, The Full Monty and more! Belnavis was awarded the New Hampshire Theater Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical and was also nominated for the Elliot Norton Award for Best Actor in a Musical.
“We are so excited for this opportunity for our campers” says The Connection’s Theater Camp Director, Jessica Fascenelli Weisenbach. “Dan’s hard work and great accomplishments are such an inspiration for our campers; his guidance in this workshop will have a lasting impression on the children.”
The Connection’s Theater Camp is a great opportunity for young stars to learn the fundamentals of performing that are singing, dancing and acting. Campers are led by a very talented group of teachers and counselors who provide them with the tools they need to improve their stage abilities in a fun and exciting environment. They will make new friends and learn skills that will help them in years to come. Session B campers will work for three weeks on a performance of Alice in Wonderland.
Theater camp starts Monday, July 1, and campers will put on three shows this year: Session A (July 1-12) will be The Jungle Book, Session B (July 25-August 2) will be Alice in Wonderland and Session C (August 5-16) will be Annie. All shows will be performed on a live stage at the Summit Middle School! Registration for Session B of Theater Camp ends at 5:00pm on Friday, July 12.
