WHAT IS THE SUMMER THEATRE ACADEMY?

Welcome to the Summer Theatre Academy! This is our 16th year running this camp and we are so excited to have you join us. This summer we are offering an array of programs that will fit many time-frames and grade levels, including bringing back our three-week sessions for students who want a longer experience, and keeping our one-week sessions for students who want a shorter experience. We also have Before and After Care to make our programs more accessible to working parents. As always, every session ends in a performance for family and friends, open to the general public.

Students spend their days with Academy staff, learning about acting, singing and dancing while rehearsing their production. Students learn to apply theatre techniques towards their performance while having fun and gaining confidence in themselves.
