THANK YOU FOR HELPING US CELEBRATE OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR!

TASM's 20th Anniversary Celebration Video

I am humbled and honored by the beautiful video tribute created for TASM’s 20th anniversary year. An immense thank you goes out to everyone – all of you who have been a part of the TASM family for the past 20 years, those who spoke so kindly in the video, and to Chelsea, who spearheaded and edited the project and managed to keep it a complete surprise from me!
Thank you, thank you, thank you – for coming together to make wonderful crazy beautiful theatre over the past two decades. You bring me so much joy.
Much love, Christy
To all TASM 2020 folk –
First of all, THANK YOU so much for being a part of this extraordinary and unconventional TASM summer. It was such a joy and privilege to create our camp shows together with you this year! It was wonderful to hear singing, laughing, and playing on campus again, and to have the opportunity to do theatre together. Each of the three shows brought something so special to the summer – Twelfth Night was ridiculously delightful with all its wild west dueling, disguises, and professions of love; Alice in Wonderland was a magical vision out under the willow tree with so much color and fun, and the cast of Julius Caesar performed their hearts out with truly impressive power, despite having a mostly vacant theatre in front of them. I am amazed and touched by all!
A few thoughts as we move forward into the next phase of our summer (and fall):
  • Covid-19: We truly appreciate ALL of the families’ trust and willingness to abide by the new guidelines, as we worked to ensure that camp was run as safely as possible. In continuing with this theme, we ask that if (in the rare chance) someone in your family is diagnosed with Covid-19 in the 2 weeks following camp (ending on August 15th), you please contact me as soon as possible. Contact tracing is our best defense in slowing down this disease.
  • Here are the VIDEOS!!! You can check out all three of our shows on vimeo:

Alice in Wonderland

Twelfth Night

Julius Caesar

  • I’ve posted them all here so you  can have whatever viewing celebration you choose, on your own schedule. From my discussions with campers, this seemed a better choice than a specifically scheduled streaming event.
  • I will also be combing through the thousands of show photos to post a bunch on the TASM Instagram (@tasmcamp) as well as here on the TASM photos page – so enjoy!
  • If you have any questions, thoughts or updates to share about camp, please feel free to reach out. I miss TASM already and would love to hear from you!
Again, thank you so much for joining us this summer. This pandemic has taught me that human connection is a rare and valuable thing, and the ability to make some theatre together in collaboration with a bunch of creative, caring and slightly crazy people is more special than ever. I treasure it, and each of you.
All my best,
Christy

Theatre at St. Michael’s invites young performing artists (ages 9-18) to come together with our talented staff to celebrate their theatrical creativity and make lifelong friends. This summer, TASM has streamlined its offerings to three separate Pods during one two-week session. 2020 sessions include our Musical Production, Shakespeare Camp Twelfth Night, and our Teen Shakespeare Intensive Julius Caesar.

Next summer, we look forward to returning to our full summer of programming, with multiple on-campus performances and the Tech program to support the shows, as well as to introducing our new Stories on Stage sessions. In the meantime, we hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy, and that we will see some of you in person for the new TASM2020 Pods!
