Classes are offered during a morning session (9 a.m. to 12 p.m.), an afternoon session (1 to 4 p.m.) or full day (9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a one-hour lunch break). Classes are varied for students who attend multiple weeks of camp. See Registration for full details. 

Theatre Exploration – Ages 6 – 10


Theatre Exploration
Week to week, students will explore all the different aspects of the theatre world, including improvisation, theatre games and writing their own scripts!  Classes can be tailored-made to explore each student’s interests. Students will be grouped according to age and/or experience level.

Theatre Concepts – Ages 11 and up

More experienced students will explore advanced topics such as Advanced Improvisation, Song Interpretation, Scenes and Monologues and more!


Advanced Improvisation
Take “Yes, and…” to the next level. Develop your improvisation skills by learning to actively listen to you group members, be more present in the scene and feel more comfortable with your body in space.

Introduction to Song Interpretation
Students will learn vocal technique and learn to interpret lyrics and perform songs with emotional range. Throughout the course, students will choose their own material and begin to create a portfolio of songs. This is a hybrid class which will focus on both textual analysis of lyrics and how to apply that analysis to performance.

Acting 101 – Scenes, Monologues and more!
Students will learn to choose audition monologues and perform them. Class includes textual analysis of different scripts and monologues, and focuses on the performance techniques used to nail an audition. Students will gain a portfolio of material and learn how to type themselves for roles.
