About St. Mary’s University Summer Musical Theatre Camp

St. Mary’s Musical Theatre Camp is a fun and unique experience that offers students ages 13-19 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.

Students will also come together in the evenings for a fun and faith-filled retreat.

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.”
