This camp is for all actors, singers and dancers who love musical theater! If you want to fine tune your skills in time for your high school musical auditions, this is the camp for you! We move fast and work as hard as we play! With classes dealing with in the moment acting, vocal production and jazz/musical theatre dance techniques, you will be well on your way to becoming a genuine triple threat. You will work all week with experienced faculty, who are also seasoned professional artists, along side your fellow performers to create a one-of-a-kind, original musical production that YOU helped write! Each week we’ll produce an entirely different show so join us for both and have twice the fun!!!
