THEATER CAMPS

with Storytree Theater

Spend this summer on a creative adventure! Our one-of-a-kind theatre camps offer students the opportunity to explore their imaginations, create, perform, and learn about theatre with professional teaching artists. Throughout the week, students develop performance technique while engaging in movement, dance, vocal and improvisational games that explore the fundamentals of theatre. The week culminates with a performance for family and friends of an original play written, designed, and performed by the students on the beautiful stage of the Martha and John M. Rivers Performance Hall at the Gaillard Center.
