Currently, all 2022 camps are scheduled to be in-person, and campers will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 as defined by the CDC. 


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 practical training, which may include improv, vocal health, on-camera acting experience, and set design.

Payment plans and scholarships are available. To set up a payment plan or to apply for a scholarship, please contact our Education Department.
