SUMMER Performance Camps!

Is your child a character? We'll move to the music, dance, play improv games, dig into the prop and costume box and create characters!  Become a pirate, superhero, diva, princess, fairy, kitty, monkey, show girl, witch, spy or troll!

Whatever character you choose, it will surely delight our audiences! Because we will showcase these characters on the last day of camp at our grand finale show.  We will design a set, create skits, tell jokes and simply have fun while learning how to perform!

This week long camp is an intense musical theater experience for the young performer that will focus on voice, projection, hip hop, dance, rap and history with the music from Hamilton!  Ideal for young performers that love the award winning music and for those who just want to HAM IT UP!
