About St. Mary’s University Musical Theatre Camp

Each year, St. Mary’s University holds a summer musical theatre camp for San Antonio-area youth. We are thrilled to announce the addition of a short winter camp this December!

Winter Musical Theatre Camp

Throughout this weekend camp, students will rehearse a selection of Broadway songs spanning a variety of classic shows, celebrated composers and lyricists.

The camp will end with a showcase compiled of ensemble dance numbers, riveting group scenes and heart-warming solos.

Rehearsals

In preparation for the Saturday performances, students will spend the mornings and afternoons rehearsing scenes, music, and choreography from the musical. In these rehearsals students will learn:

  • Theatre/music/dance – specific language
  • Healthy vocal and dance practices
  • Improvisational techniques
  • Backstage practices
  • Leadership on and off stage

“This camp is truly an experience: It’s an amazing environment and the people are amazing. You create such a strong bond with the people that you won’t find anywhere else all while having fun and putting on a play.”
