Two-week Musical Theatre Production

This unique and exhilarating summer theatre camp is designed for talented actors, singers and dancers with all experience levels. You will work on an adapted musical from its early stages of development to its premiere performance. Rehearsals with the director, musical director, and choreographer take place from 8:30AM to 4PM, Monday through Friday. You also may have the chance to learn various technical aspects of production such as costuming, props, and set construction.

You will audition on the first day of camp, which will require 16-bars from any song from a musical of your choice or a song from the chosen show. You will also learn some choreography and participate in a read-through of the show. Our summer 2019 shows look to be as innovative and high-spirited as our past productions like Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast. Every actor will have a part and every actor will sing, although some parts are more demanding than others, and not every actor will have a singing solo. You will receive a letter in May (production #1) or June (production #2) with more specifics about the production and audition information.

  • 8:30AM Stretch and warm-up, review the day
