Thank you to all who auditioned! It’s going to be a great summer!

We still have openings for our Technical Track!

Our annual summer camps are designed for youth that have graduated from 3rd grade and goes all the way up through college age students.  It is an incredible experience for youth of every talent level.  Several students have chosen our summer camps over trips to Europe, and DisneyWorld!!!  It is not just fun, but life changing.  The students arrive as individuals but leave as a family of collaborative artists.Camp starts at 9 am and runs through 4:00 pm.  Campers are expected to attend every day of camp.  They bring their own lunch and snacks for breaks.The cast will spend the majority of their day rehearsing the musical by learning the songs, dances, and script as well as study acting and character development.  There will even be time for games.

Technical Track students  (grade 7 and up) build the show’s set, focus stage lights, build stage properties, and serve as the technical crew for the show.

Camp ages – “suggested” ages are listed to accommodate the very young student. Many of the very young students are unable to handle the commitment of a two-week production.
We will on occasion cast a very young student in the 2 wk and an older more mature student in the 1 wk, b/c sometimes it suits them.
