Spring/Summer Camps

At theatre camp, students meet new friends, play drama games, learn theatre skills from professional teachers and artists, and build a show from the ground up in just one week. It’s a fantastic spring break or summer getaway!

Spring Break Full-Day Camp is five fun-filled days working with theatre professionals, making new friends, and building a show from the ground up. The energetic rehearsal process culminates in a large-group performance, presented on the last day of camp to an invited audience of family and friends.

Classes run from 9 am–4 pm daily. Student drop-off begins at 8:30 am and pick-up goes until 5 pm.
