2024 SUMMER CAMP

All camps run Monday - Friday from 9 am to 4 pm with a performance on Friday open to friends and family. Camps are $225 per week. Each additional camper in the immediate family is $200 per week.

Disney Storytelling Camp will be based on sharing and incorporating theatre exercises that will produce effective storytelling skills using Disney themes. Each day campers will be broken into drama, dance, and music sections. The drama section will be about learning their story and basic staging skills (with theatre exercises). An opening and closing song will be choreographed from two of the Disney stories they will learn. In between these songs will be the storytelling of each story. A performance on Friday will allow the campers to show off what they've learned during the week. Disney Storytelling Director: Kiera Whittemore

Broadway Classics Reimagined camp will be based on building confidence in performing and working well with others. This camp will be "Golden Age" themed. Essentially, the kids will perform a "Junior-Junior" version of a Golden Age musical. The day will be broken down into acting, dance, music, and staging skills, along with a technical component. They will be learning the basic skills of ensemble work, auditioning, memorization, and technical design/techniques. The musical will essentially be cut and have a performance at the end of the week.
