Bay Street Theatre is holding Summer Music Theater Camps for budding actresses or actors on August 5 to 9 and August 12 to 16, and only a few spaces are left.

The camps are for students aged 8 through 12, and run Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily at Studio 3 in Bridgehampton. Each week long camp includes many aspects of theater like dance, improv, vocal instruction, and more. This summer's first and last week of camp will be led by Karen Peele Hochstedler. Classes held during August 5 to 9 will be led by Christine Martinez and Bobby Peterson with both an instructor and an assistant at each session.

The teachers offer a wide variety of experience. Hamptons native Karen Peele Hochstedler and a mother of six children, has had extensive experience teaching music and movement, acting, script writing, and improvisation to young children, as well as adults over the past 25 years.

Christine Martinez has performed all over New York and is also the manager of East Wind Inn and Spa Carolers for the last 6 years. She has been a Smithtown Heritage Ukrainian Folk dancer for over 20 years as well as co-teacher for 6 of those years.

Bobby Peterson, who will be working with Christina the first session, is the music director and organist at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in East Hampton. He has been the musical director for as well as performed in many Long Island Theater shows.

"We are so excited to be offering three weeks of musical theatre camp this year," says Executive Director Tracy Mitchell. "All of our instructors are extremely passionate and talented when it comes to music, theater and dance. We couldn't be more pleased to be able to offer this level of fun and training to kids here on the east end!"
