Kids will receive instruction in movement, design, voice, acting and text, as well as enjoy workshops by area professionals in subjects such as Improv, graphic design, history and more. The mornings are spent in fun classes and the afternoons are spent applying that learning to The Tempest. Kids will choose a major, so some will run the lights for the show, some will act, some will be in charge of costumes, and more!

No auditions are necessary to attend the camp. Tuition is $150 per week, with discounts offered for multiple children and for children taking three full weeks, paid in advance. The program is for kids 8 to 15, with summer camp opening June 2 and closing June 20 with two performances on that date.
