Our summer camp programs are designed to provide campers the opportunity to have fun while also learning valuable skills to help them with future performance opportunities. Each camp involves an audition component that gets more complex with each age group. Within each of the theatre camps, there will be some larger roles and some that are more ensemble-focused. These casting decisions are based on the strength of the audition.
Please be aware of this prior to registering your child; the cost of tuition guarantees that your child will be well-taken care of as they explore musical theatre in the safe, welcoming environment of our theatre. It guarantees that we will do our best to teach them valuable skills on and off the stage. Tuition does not guarantee that your child will have a lead role in their camp performance. It does not guarantee that they will have a solo or lines of their own to deliver independently. While these are also valuable opportunities, they are not realistic preparation for the auditions they may participate in during the rest of the year. Camp tuition does guarantee that we’ll find as many interesting ways to utilize them onstage as possible as we facilitate opportunities for them to grow as performers. We will focus as much on the responsibilities of leading and supporting roles as we do on the responsibilities of the ensemble.
Senior High Theatre Camp
Senior High Camp – $375
Rising 9th Grade to Rising College Freshmen
Rising 9th Graders may choose between Junior and Senior Camp. They MAY register for both if they’d like.
Campers must be able to attend each camp day by themselves; we do not invite parents and guardians to stay because it can create a distraction for other students.
Auditions: June 29th, 9am-3pm.
Students will be asked to prepare a song selection prior to the audition. This piece should be no more than 90 seconds in length; they’ll be cut off if they go over that time. They should select something from another Broadway musical that is appropriate for their age and for the role for which they’d like to be considered.
On site, students will participate in a dance audition and cold readings. We may send the dance portion ahead of time for them to practice.
Camp Days: Monday-Friday, July 8th-July 26th, 9am-4pm
Performances: July 26th and 27th at 7pm and July 28th at 3pm
Campers should bring a water bottle and a lunch with them each day. Please try to avoid peanut butter as much as possible, as we often have many campers with nut allergies.
With explicit parent permission, campers will be able to walk to one of the local restaurants Monday-Friday of each week. While making this determination, parents should note that campers will not be accompanied by an adult if they walk to one of these restaurants, but they will be required to travel with at least one other camper.
With explicit parent permission, campers may also be able to drive themselves to lunch. With further permission, campers may be able to drive others, assuming they are legally able to do so.
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
We will be producing the revival version of this musical and will be ensuring that it is ideal for our teenage performers.
