 Musical Theatre Camp

Our cast of campers have the exciting opportunity to produce a full-scale musical in just three weeks! In this special program, campers learn theatre skills and gain acting experience through hands-on participation in the production process. Each session will lead its participants through auditioning, choreography, staging, costuming, and vocal rehearsals all leading up to the opening night of their BIG SHOW! Parents, family, and friends are invited to come enjoy the show on the last day of camp. We'll see you in your seat!

Musical Theatre Camp for Kids: Space Pirates

Pirates! Aliens! Space Travel! Space Pirates tells the story of Gabby, a kid who gets picked on during a school trip to the museum. Everything quickly changes when an alien spaceship accidentally beams Gabby and her classmates up to outer space.

Musical Theatre Camp for Teens: Newsies

Disney's Newsies JR. is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.
Including the now-classic songs "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," and "Santa Fe," Newsies JR. is a timeless story full of spirit and heart.
