Campers learn about all aspects of musical theater while also building confidence and self-esteem. All levels of experience or no experience at all are welcome! Theater Camp teaches kids how to use performance and theater arts to break out of their shells, use creativity and come alive on stage—giving them the life skills needed to succeed.
       And Theater Camp is more than just theater! After morning rehearsals, afternoons are filled with fun activities including swimming every day, games, contest, workshops, improv, relay races, charades, scavenger hunts, carnival & much more.
       Find out why our Theater Camp was honored by the New Jersey State Senate, General Assembly & Middlesex County Freeholders for Artistic Excellence. Visit website for details.
