Fight choreographer Lance Arthur Smith first encountered Star Wars in the form of The Empire Strikes Back at the age of three. A few years later, Return of the Jedi completely captured his attention. He’s always been involved in entertainment in various roles and says, “Star Wars inspired me to become first an actor, then a writer, then a practitioner of stage combat, and finally a fight choreographer. I’ve worked in film, television, and stage in many capacities. The story of a carpenter who was then asked to be an off-camera reader for auditions and finally cast as a Corellian scoundrel inspired me. Lucas himself was a writer/director/camera operator/etc. and the importance of diversifying in this business wasn’t lost on me.”
“Kids can expect a lot of fun but also a great learning experience,” says local theatre talent Abby DeSpain, who recently received the Craig Noel Young Artist Award, and attended three sessions of Camp Intrepid last summer. “I especially liked learning stage combat from Lance Arthur Smith,” she says of the local professional actor and fightmaster, who is one of a slew of guest artists invited to teach campers during their sessions.
