Musical Theatre Camp Services


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.”
