A spectacular all-day theatre camp where young people make friends, expand their imagination and have fun as they act, sing, dance, play theatre games, and work with costumes and make-up, lighting and sound, sets and props, to help create an awesome fully staged original play or musical production written just for them.
The respected Playhouse Theatre Conservatory program for youth, now celebrating its 50th year, combines the fun and excitement of working as a team to create and perform a brand-new play with the joy and fulfillment of a stress-free, creative, arts-oriented environment in which working actors share their love of the craft with young people in all stages of development.
Participants learn to share feelings and responsibilities with a group of their “play”-mates in an engaging and fun atmosphere and get a great physical workout, too.
No experience needed, but even the most “advanced” young actor will benefit from this unique hands-on method, structured so that each child can be successful.
Six one-week classes to choose from, each with its own original show at the end of the week. Classes meet Mon – Fri, 9 to 3. June 17-21; June 24-28; July 8-12; July 15-19; Aug 5-9; Aug 12-16.
Special Teen Camp (Aug 5-9) and Early Stages classes for ages 4 to 6 (June 24-28 and Aug 12-16) also available.
Playhouse conservatory alumni include Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Deschanel, Jason Ritter, Jason Segel, Obi Ndefo, 12-year Playhouse alumna Cami Anderson, one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, and Maroon 5’s Mickey Madden, who calls the program “Great in so many ways!”
