a singing, acting, dancing and tech
day camp for middle school students
July 17-July 29, 2017
for students entering grades 7-9
Monday – Friday 12:45-5 pm
Campers interact one-on-one with both adults and older students, all of whom bring diverse experience and interests to the FAME program.
Why Hanford High Fame Camp?
Hanford High School Drama, under the direction of Matt Leggett since 1990, has built a reputation for quality theater instruction and production. The students participate in classroom instruction, in regional and state competitions and in full-scale performances. Staging a range of performances—from Shakespeare’s comedies and tragedies to musicals like The Little Mermaid—the program thrives on excellent leadership, student talent and parent and community involvement.
Each year, students earn double superior ratings at the regional and state drama competitions. Hanford High’s 2014 production of The Drowsy Chaperone won best musical at the 5th Avenue Awards, the Washington State high school equivalent of the Tony Awards. Four years ago, How to Succeed in Business won the same honor.
Many of our alumni go on to pursue theater or music degrees and careers in the performing arts.
Fame Camp Goals

- to increase self-confidence and independence in students through workshop opportunities.
- to develop knowledge about theater production, both in front of the curtain and behind the scenes.
- to be inspired by adults and other students who love the theater.
- to have fun!
