At Theatrical Camps young actors participate in a hands-on theatrical experience in a non-competitive, fun environment. Each session covers all aspects of a musical production including auditions, staging and choreography. A typical day includes voice, dance and acting instruction, games and arts and crafts.

Each Theatrical Camp session concludes with a FREE performance for family & friends.
