Musical Theatre

SUMMER ACADEMY REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

You can register online or download a paper registration form.

Students who register by March 6th will receive a $20 discount on day camp and overnight registration fees, as well as a discounted camp t-shirt.

Come join us for an adventure this summer discovering the world of musical theatre! This program is designed as an exploration of performance art, encouraging budding or practicing actors to take their craft to the next level. We will set out to create an environment where we can freely use our voices, bodies, and minds to express ourselves artistically. In addition to learning what it takes to be a great performer, the group will also attend a show locally and learn the importance of being an excellent audience member. Ensemble building exercises will be a key focus for us this summer, as we work together to create a performance using everyone’s unique talents and incorporating them into our collective show. The show will take place the last day of camp and we encourage friends and family to attend!
