First opened in 1928, the Lincoln Theatre is a landmark in African-American and jazz history. After undergoing a $13.5 million renovation funded by a partnership of public and private support, the Lincoln reopened in May 2009 as a multi-use, state-of-the-art performing arts and education center serving the diversity of the central Ohio community. The Lincoln is a bustling hub of activity 365 days a year hosting performances, rehearsals, and classes in the performing arts, as well as a wide variety of community events such as film festivals, meetings, and receptions.
Lincoln Theatre Patternz Summer Camp will consist of 8 one-week camps for children ages 6-13 designed to spark creativity and a passion for the arts through experience with multiple art forms. Facilitated by graduates of the Lincoln Theatre’s “Expand Your Horizons” Artist Incubation Program, campers will begin each day with affirmations of excellence, then rotate through workshops in dance, theatre, music, and visual arts. At the end of each week, campers will put on a program for their families to show what they’ve learned throughout the week.
We are thrilled to be moving forward and welcoming campers back to the Lincoln Theatre once again! As we all know, the world has changed in these times of COVID-19, so we have implemented new protocols recommended by the State of Ohio plus a few of our own to keep campers and staff safe this summer. We want this to be a fun, creative, and exciting experience for our campers, and with your cooperation, we are sure to deliver!
