DUXBURY and HINGHAM, MA Teens take on pop-star status over April vacation week with South Shore Conservatory's /Glee Camp/, an intensive performance program designed for students grades seven through nine. /Glee Camp/ provides five days of vocal coaching, choreography and performance technique, inspired by the hit television show. The program runs from April 16 to 20, from 10 am to 2 pm daily, at the Conservatory's Duxbury campus, 64 St. George Street, Duxbury. Parents and friends are invited to the final performance on Friday, April 20 at 2 pm.

At /Glee Camp/, teens are immersed in their favorite pop tunes as they rehearse both large and small group numbers.
