Summer Camps 2020

BEST. SUMMER. EVER!

Whether you are a first-time theatre dabbler wanting to try something new, or a young rising star seeking every opportunity to hone their craft, this summer you want to be at the Playhouse School of Performing Arts!

Each camp accumulates in a final showcase on the Friday of its camp week at 4:00pm for family and friends to see.

WHICH CAMP IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Each camp is a unique experience with a different approach to theatre.

  • Never taken a theatre class before? Our week-long summer camps are perfect for dipping one’s toes in and seeing if taking center stage if right for them.
  • Are you eager to learn all you can about your craft, to dive deeper for a more intense experience? We have the camp for you: our Junior and Teen Intensives! Fully-immersive 4-week camps, our intensives explore all aspects of theatre, on-stage and behind-the-scenes, for a well-rounded experience. The junior intensive is for ages 8-13, and the teen intensive for ages 13-18.
