Summer drama camps are designed to put together a small performance on the final day of each camp. During the week, the participants will determine how they want to tell their story; this may involve using an existing script, or writing a new one of their own. Each performance will feature simplistic props, sets, and costumes that are needed to tell the story effectively.
Two-week camps will offer longer scripts and musical numbers.
Summer drama camps are for children ages 6 to 15
