Two-Week Musical Theatre Camp
Entering 2nd - 8th Grades

This fast-paced musical theatre camp takes students entering second - eighth grades through daily fun and engaging rehearsals as we prepare for a fully produced show. Working with a director, choreographer, and music director, campers learn vocal technique, basic dance vocabulary, and storytelling. Staff place an emphasis on building a strong ensemble who support each other on and off stage and use the craft of theatre to help campers build life skills such as creative thinking and problem solving, empathy, and self-confidence. In addition to rehearsals, campers play theatre games, and have outdoor breaks for snack and lunch.

Little Performers Camp
Entering K - 1st Grades
Note: This camp is not available to transitional kindergartners.

Play games, sing songs, create characters, tell stories! In this one-week camp, we will explore theatre through fun activities that will help teach the basics of drama while engaging the imagination. The camp will finish with a final sharing on the last day of camp where all campers get to show off their new skills.

One Week Improv Explosion Camps
Entering 3rd - 6th Grades

These one-week sessions focus on improvisation and storytelling. We will dive into the collaborative world of creating an original piece of theatre from the ground up! Through basic improv skills, theatre games, story building workshops and artistic collaboration, our actors will construct their very own unique theatre experience. Each week will culminate in a final showcase for friends and family. Emphasis will be placed on building a strong ensemble and exploring artistic creativity.
