Program Details

This is an intensive theatre program. The bulk of the camp session will be spent rehearsing the showcase or on topics related to the showcase. (No sports or recreation breaks.)

Students will spend part of some days in classes including dance, voice for musical theatre, and acting technique/improvisation. These classes will focus on general technique for musical theatre, with an emphasis on audition preparation and technique. It is our goal for every student to become a successful auditioner and to have the correct materials and knowledge to be able to do so. Topics relating to the showcase will also be discussed and presented on most days in a full group setting. Students will be grouped into technique classes by school grade level.

The showcase will include full group numbers, small group numbers, and possibly a limited number of solos and/or duets. After students are comfortable
and prepared there will be a very low-stress audition process to both evaluate the level at which the students are for class work and to place them into group numbers for the showcase. Any solos and/or duets will be decided on the basis of classwork.
