kidsActing has offered engaging performing arts summer camps for children ages 4-18 since 1980. This year we’re going all out as we host award-winning single and multiple week camps — all of which culminate in performances for friends and family. Most importantly, kidsActing ensures a summer filled with friends and fun.
WHY ENROLL IN A CAMP AT KIDSACTING?
For starters, summer camps at kidsActing revolve around producing a show for family and friends. They’re designed to be FUN while kids audition, memorize lines, block scenes, sing, dance and learn music (if it’s a music camp), or perform stage combat, and create and become characters who captivate audiences.
kidsActing camps are taught in easily digested blocks: new skills, review, fun. Designed to create a trusting and connected team, our shows encourage kids to safely stretch outside their comfort zone, and experience creativity in a new delightful way.
OUR MULTI-WEEK CAMPS
Professional directors, choreographers, and vocal teachers conduct kidsActing’s multi-week camps, for ages 8-18. We will soon be announcing which full-scale play and musical productions we’ll be offering. There is also a Student Tech Theatre program for ages 13 and up.
Campers rehearse as well as perform at Center Stage Theatre, our full-sized venue. They learn to trust, listen, and communicate to build relationships on stage with their characters.
Young actors in a full-scale production experience a professionally produced show from first auditions to final bows with professionally designed costumes, make-up/hair, sets, props, lights, sound, and live accompaniment (for musicals).
Our one-week camps are five full days of fun for various age groups from 5-16. This year, we’re offering several popular camps, including:
Triple Threat Musicals (Various age groups, 5-16)
Campers will sing, dance and act while playing fun theatre games. Kids will perform in a mini-musical revue complete with costumes, lights, live music, and above all, FUN. Each camp emphasizes a specific musical theme.
Adventures in Acting (Various age groups 6-14)
Campers are invited to join an EPIC journey with no singing required! Campers interested in acting and stage combat become a character in an amazing adventure, and treat friends and family to a performance complete with costumes, lights, and props. There are great roles for everyone, and each camp emphasizes a specific theme. See our website for up-to-date listings.
Greatest Showman Show Choir (formerly Glee) (Various age groups 7-14)
In our Greatest Showman show choir, our professional choreographer and vocal coach provide a great week of singing and dancing as a group. Kids get voice training and learn to harmonize and dance. Our summer show choir is The Greatest Showman, including all your favorite songs from the movie. At the end of the week, kids perform a fabulous show for family and friends.
Creative Kids (Half-Day for Ages 4-8)
These half-day Triple Threat camps are playful fun for our younger theatre kids. Each camp has a specific musical theme where the young ones work together to prepare a mini-musical revue, complete with costumes, lights, props, and live music. There are great roles for everyone, and each camp emphasizes a specific musical theme. See our website for up-to-date listings.
