- Text: Strong improv ability (required), heightened language Not all roles will require fighting, principals will be required to learn some text.

About Camp Half-Blood NYC We currently operate in two locations: Prospect Park, Brooklyn and Inwood Hill Park, Northern Manhattan.
Please indicate which location(s) you would like to be considered for in your application. Camp Half-Blood NYC is modeled on the camp of the same name from the Percy Jackson novels by Rick Riordan. Each weekly session pulls its theme from a different Greek Myth. Using storytelling, live action role play and physically and mentally engaging activities, campers work with their friends to develop new skills, solve problems and create summer memories that will last a lifetime. During the week, campers go on a “Quest” adventure, on which they travel in groups throughout the park, and along the way they encounter heroes and monsters from mythological stories. We are looking for versatile actors to portray these different characters throughout the summer. We are looking to build a core ensemble of actors that are committed to bringing these stories to life for children. Basic knowledge of classic Greek mythological stories is a huge plus.
