Camp Offering

Theater Workshop (Ages 8-15)
Do you love to act, sing, dance or tell jokes? Do you see yourself behind the scenes, as a director, stage manager or props designer?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, the Youth Theater Workshop is for you! The workshop will take you through the entire process of producing a musical theater piece, from creating the characters, writing the script and developing songs, to rehearsing and performing in the final production, which will take place on the last day of the workshop. No experience is required, just a desire to jump in and put on a show!

Our program can accommodate both new and experienced performers. The group will be split early in the first week based on experience level.

The instructional component of these programs will run from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. with a half hour for lunch each day.

Our counseling staff will provide supervision of participants from 8 - 9 a.m. and 3 - 4 p.m. each day for those students who arrive early and stay late. Students should bring their own lunch and snack each day. Refrigeration is not available.
