Camp Ideology

At the Playhouse, we believe everyone has a voice. Our process-based summer camp programs are designed to build confidence, strengthen communication skills and develop a sense of ensemble and community. Our camps focus on individual and collective development in a fun, supportive and skills-based environment.

Camps include:

FULL DAY, ONE-WEEK CAMPS for incoming first- through 10th-graders.

Introduce the young theatre fans in your life to the Playhouse for full-day, one-week day camp! Each week offers five exciting courses that are designed to engage in the magic and playfulness of live theatre. All lessons lead up to a five-minute “shareformance” which shares a scene informally with friends and family on the last day of camp. Classes and themes vary each session for campers interested in joining multiple weeks!

FULL DAY PERFORMANCE ACADEMY for incoming first- through 12th-graders.

This process-based performance program is for the theatre enthusiast who wants to experience the production of a play from beginning to end. During each full-day camp session, campers will take technique and special skills classes and rehearse a play to be performed with limited sets and costumes for friends and family at the end of the week. Performance Academy programs include three-week, two-week and one-week full-day camps.

We emphasize the hands-on, educational experience of performance and do not require an audition to enter the program. Roles will be assigned on the first or second day of camp and lead roles may be double cast to increase the learning experience for student performers. Performers will be organized by age for classes and small group rehearsals. Space is limited to a first-come, first-served basis.
