Classes

Music theater camp class

At Musical Theater Camp students will participate in dance, acting, and voice classes each day. Morning warm-ups will provide students with a practice routine that they can take home and implement into their own practice regime. In our intensive classes students will push their skills to the next level. Each student will receive one-on-one attention in a private voice lesson and while being coached in our daily masterclasses.

Scenes

Music theater camp performance

Musical Theater Camp is a great place for students to gain experience performing a variety of roles and styles on stage. Each student will be cast in at last four scenes that will be staged, rehearsed, and choreographed during the week. Students will participate in full-cast choruses and as soloists in more intimate scenes. These scenes will be presented to the public in our Musical Theater Revue on Saturday, June 24.

NEW THIS YEAR: Students will audition prior to camp! Recorded auditions will be submitted with completed registrations, students will be cast in scenes and receive all music prior to camp.

Sunday Night Kick ­Off

The camp will kick-off on Sunday night with an evening of games and a pizza party. Students will show off their skills in a quick dance class and audition. Finally, students will tour the campus and those staying on campus will move into dorms.
