Session 1: Musical Theater Workshop | July 31 – August 4

Register Now: 417.9515.1

Campers spend an amazing week developing their “triple-threat” musical theater skills: singing, dancing and acting. This is a great program for campers who have spent a summer in our Performing Arts Camp and want to hone their skills.   Campers will create an original cabaret of songs, dances, scenes and monologues pulling from musicals like Wicked, Hamilton, The Fantasticks, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Session 2: Acting and Improvisation| August 7-11

Register Now: 417.9525.1

Exploring the actor’s tools of body, voice and imagination, campers will learn to make up great characters on the fly with fellow campers to create funny sketches and play wild theater games.  The week will end with an exciting showcase of games and sketches for family and friends to enjoy.

Session 3: Visual Art Grab-Bag | Aug 14-18

Register Now: 417.9535.1

Every day campers will explore a different artistic medium and create a small but dynamic portfolio of original work. Painting, watercolor, clay, collage, mixed-media and more will be used in this dynamic camp.  The week will end with an exhibition of the camper’s work for family and friends.
