Registration for Winter Break Cabaret Camp!

Welcome to Roots’ School of Theatre’s Youth Winter Cabaret Camp for performers in grades 3rd-8th! This camp is special because we limit it to 16 performers to ensure quality instruction and individual attention for each singer. All performers in this camp are guaranteed solos either by themselves or in a small group as well as more singing & dancing with the entire group!

December 30th – January 3rd

All performers will participate in both an opening and closing number that includes choreography & singing, as well as a solo, duet, or small group number that they will perform along with a karaoke backing track. (Everyone is required to sing by themselves at some point during the show.)



December 30th – January 3rd
Monday – Friday 9:00AM-5:00PM (We will have camp on New Year’s Day)
Drop-off: 8:30-9:00AM (You may request early drop-off for no earlier than 8:00AM for an additional $10/day)
Pick-up: 4:45-5:00PM (Students being picked up after 5:15PM, unless previously agreed upon by the instructor, will result in a $20 late fee) *EXCEPT FRIDAY


There will be a performance on Friday, January 3rd @ 6:00PM. (You do not need to pick up your student until after the performance has ended on Friday)


Each performer will be allotted up to 5 seats for friends & family to attend the performance on Friday! Feel free to record the performance as well on your own device.


Full Price & Registration Deposit: $250:

  • (Materials Fee: $20)
  • (Camp Week: $230)
    Camp Week cannot be refunded after December 16th. Materials Fee is non-refundable, but can be transferred to another production or class at Roots’ School of Theatre.


  • Healthy Lunch
  • 2 Healthy Snacks
  • Water Bottle
  • Comfortable, Closed-Toe Shoes
    We often built set pieces in the theater and there’s a chance they could step on a nail or screw that was missed in the cleaning process if they aren’t wearing appropriate footwear. (You are welcome to bring Jazz or Ballet flats to change into, but these are not required)
  • Comfortable Clothing
    We will be dancing and running around quite a bit, so please do not have them wear dresses or skirts unless they wear shorts or leggings underneath, and make sure they can move easily.


Auditions will be held during the first day of camp on Monday, December 30th and each performer will be assigned a solo, duet, or small group number to work on throughout the week along with the opener and closer.


You are allowed and encouraged to bring an outfit or costume that you feel works for your performer’s individual or small group number.

Max: 16 Singers
