CAMPS & CLASSES
Kids and teens from all interests and abilities have a variety of opportunities to connect with and learn from world-class theater professionals both on and off the stage.
Embrace your spark and run with it!
Our camps and classes ignite students’ imaginations through the collaborative process of theatre, empower them as creative thinkers, and support their development as artists and young adults.
In addition to performance-focused camps and classes, our popular, one-of-a-kind technical theatre intensive is a unique chance for aspiring artists who are eager to participate in theatre but who may prefer working behind-the-scenes.
Students leave our instruction equipped with a strong foundation of acting and production skills along with a practical portfolio, which may include a voiceover reel, on-camera acting experience, and set design.
Payment plans and scholarships are available. To set up a payment plan, please call our Education, Engagement, and Inclusion Department.

The Super Non-Heroes
by Taryn Temple
Have you ever felt like you don’t belong? Powerless Charlie sticks out like a sore thumb in a school full of superheroes. Smellinator can’t control her powers and forgot to do her Villain 101 homework. Golden Boy won’t follow protocol. And Toxic Sludge is, well, toxic sludge. When a supervillain attacks the school Charlie must dig deep within herself. She may not be a superhero, but she discovers her unique talents to save the day. A fabulous middle school play that looks at friendship, acceptance, and discovering yourself. Who doesn’t want to be a superhero?
