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!

Summer Musical Theatre Camp

St. Mary’s Musical Theatre Camp is a fun and unique experience that offers students ages 14-19* the opportunity to learn a full-length Broadway musical in just one week. Ending the week with two performances free to the public, every student will have a chance to showcase skills learned on the stage or behind the scenes. 

*or will have turned 14 as of September 1.

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.”
