Summer Theatre Camp for Kids (grades 5-8)

2023 Summer Theatre Camp
(June 19 – 30)

During this two-week (Monday through Friday each week) summer camp at the Iron Horse Community Theatre, students will explore the fundamental building blocks of the craft of musical theatre (acting, singing, and dancing) and apply these skills through a performance for their family and friends at the end of the two-week session. 


Students in this program explore various acting techniques through a series of exercises that will help them establish a firm acting foundation. We will also provide lessons in voice (singing) and choreographed dance as well. This program for young actors emphasizes the connection to both text and scene partners. 


With the guidance of our teachers, the students will spend their first week engaged in various improvisation games and formats. In addition, we will bring in experienced performers to share some additional fun acting techniques as well. 


The second week of this camp will encompass rehearsing from a script. Students will also prepare costumes, props, and technical needs, ensuring that their performance at the end of the two-week camp is a success. While we encourage all students to act in the final show, we are always open to allowing someone who may be more interested in the technical aspects (lights and sound) of a show, to shine in that area as well. 


Each day there will be four hours (10 am - 2pm) of acting techniques and rehearsals. We will stop around noon to eat lunch (Students will need to pack a lunch each day, except the last day of each week. We will provide lunch on Fridays including a pizza party celebration on the final day). The last day concludes with a showcase performance that demonstrates the growth and skills of the young actors. 


The two-week camp begins Monday, June 19 and concludes Friday, June 30. The showcase performance will be that final Friday, June 30 at 2:00 pm for the family and friends of the students. The performance will be about one hour. 


Cost of the two-week workshop is $300.00 per student or $275.00 if paid early by June 1.
