July 29-Aug. 2 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m. | $240
Park City Library, 1255 Park Ave.

In partnership with Park City Library, this camp experience brings beloved children’s books such as “The Gruffalo” and “Where the Wild Things Are” to life on stage. Each group (separated by age) will explore stories and characters through dramatic play, craft props and costumes, and perform the story live on stage during a showcase on the final camp day.

ACT OUT

Ages 8-12/ entering 3rd-7th grades
June 10-14 l July 8-12 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m. | $230

One of our most popular one-week camps for this age group, this one always sells out- so we’ve added an extra camp week this summer. Take just one of the weeks, or keep building your skills by taking both. Learn the fundamental skills every actor needs to have in their toolbox: how to create a character, work in an ensemble, effectively tell a story, and the basics of improv. Show off your skills in a showcase the final afternoon of camp.

MUSICAL THEATRE PRODUCTION

June 17-28 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m. | $500

Boundary-pushing Broadway productions such as Warhorse, The Lion King, and King Kong have changed the theatrical landscape and redefined the meaning of ensemble, one of the most important elements of theatre.

MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW- “ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE.”

Ages 8-18/ entering 3rd-12th grades
July 15-19 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m. | $250

We pick songs from the wonderful world of musical theatre on our chosen theme and you spend the week rehearsing music and choreography to perform on Egyptian Theatre stage at the end-of-week showcase. Our focus this summer on “stage” pertains to both performance and the life stages of growing up, students will be broken up into smaller groups by age.
