Experience theater in a whole new way! In this process-based program, campers cultivate their talents as they create and perform their own scenes. During fun-filled days of improvisational games and imaginative exercises, campers gain theatrical knowledge, acquire technical skills and develop the confidence to take the stage. Campers bring their own ideas for characters, settings and conflicts to life through a combination of improvisation, collaboration and writing. At the end of camp, actors showcase what they have learned in a final performance for family and friends.
