Summer Camps

Musical Theatre Intensives

These camps are for Musical Theatre lovers! Our Intensives offer mentorship by master teacher Tony Curry. If you are a triple threat, or want to be one, you will love spending your time singing, dancing and acting your way through a week of rigorous rehearsal with your director, musical director and choreographer. Invite your manager (or Mom and Dad) to the final class to see you "putting it together" in an off-Broadway PREMIERE created just for you!

Theatre Arts Camps

If you like making up shows with your friends, these are the camps for you! Every day is about choosing characters, creating stories, playing theatre games and rehearsing a show! We also make time for outside play at the playground, snack time, crafts for scenery or props, and sharing. Then, on the last day, it’s time for the BIG SHOW for family and friends!
