Registered: Exploring Your Creativity Theatre Camp

Does your tween or teen have a longing for the stage? This week-long camp will immerse your child in all things theatrical. Each day will begin with theatre games and improvisations followed by reading and blocking short scenes. Whether your child is an experienced thespian or novice enthusiast, there is something for everyone to love in this playful and intensive theatrical experience. Tweens and teens will celebrate with a pizza party and a scene showcase on the final day. Participants should bring a bagged lunch from Monday to Thursday.

Due to this program's popularity, we held a registration lottery which is now closed.

The lottery will open on Monday, July 15th and close on Monday, July 29th. Participants will be notified if they have received a spot by Friday, August 2nd. Your child must be able to attend all five classes to participate in this special program.

Ages 11 to 18.
