Summer Musical Theatre

Based on Meredith Willson’s six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man KIDS features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance.  The Music Man KIDS is family entertainment at its best – a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter!

Only 17 actors will be accepted per show!

We meet Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm daily.

All actors will be given a script and a cd of the music for the show prior to the camp beginning.  First morning of camp we will hold auditions for the 18 characters in the show and then rehearsing begins.  We take a morning and afternoon snack break and a lunch break daily (all food is provided by you.)  On Friday we will stop rehearsing at about 4:30pm to get into costume and put on any required makeup. Costumes will only be provided for some of the parts. We will let you know which ones those are after casting is finished. For those the basic under layer is all you will need to bring.

1st – 9th Grade

Registration:  $40 (includes scripts, cd of music and costuming)

Tuition: $240 entire day all week

Camp Weeks: SOLD OUT!!!
