kidsActing has the magic touch that keeps kids coming back for more! – Brantley May, parent
kidsActing, Austin’s favorite and longest-operating year-round school for young performers, has offered fun and engaging 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 and development of a skill set unique to theatre camps.
MULTI-WEEK CAMPS (3 or 4 weeks)
3-week Full-Scale Play Production. June. Treasure Island
4-week Full-Scale Musical Production. July. School of Rock
Campers rehearse as well as perform in Center Stage Theatre, our full-sized venue. They learn to trust, listen, and communicate to build relationships on stage with their characters. Campers in a full-scale production experience a professionally produced show from first auditions to final bows.
Professional directors, choreographers, and vocal teachers run Treasure Island and School of Rock camps. Plays and Musicals also have professionally designed costumes, make-up/hair, sets, props, lights, sound, and live accompaniment (for musicals).
Summer camp revolves around the delightful task of producing a show for family and friends. All kidsActing camps are designed to be FUN while also teaching kids how to:
- memorize lines
- block scenes
- sing and learn music (if it’s a music camp)
- dance or perform stage combat
- create characters
kidsActing camps are taught in easily digested blocks: new skills, review, fun. These mini-intensives are designed to create a trusting team, encouraging kids to safely stretch outside their comfort zone and experience creativity in a tactile way.
Triple Threat Musicals: Various age groups 5-16. Each week focuses on one specific musical. These are the same types of shows we offer during the school year. Kids sing, dance, act, and learn/perform comedy.
Adventures in Acting: Various age groups 6-14. Each week focuses on one specific play. Kids act and learn/perform stage combat.
Glee Show Choir: Various age groups 7-14. Our professional choreographer and vocal coach provide kids a great week of singing and dancing as a group. They harmonize and move like pros.
Creative Kids: Ages 4-8. These half-day camps are playful fun for our younger theatre kids. Each has a specific musical theme where kids get a mini-musical revue show ready for the end of camp.
Our camps are hosted in multiple locations throughout Central Texas with several in Austin proper, plus Westlake, Lakeway, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Oak Hill, and Dripping Springs. It’s easy to find an awesome summer camp in your neighborhood. See our website for more details: www.kidsactingstudio.com
