Musical Theatre Camps

Gotta sing!? Gotta dance!? Get yourself into your kind of camp! Kids inclined to musical theatre – the most challenging of all drama forms – find a wonderful learning experience in summer camps focused on the stage musical. Listed here you'll find top-notch professional performance camps that feature music theatre at the top of the bill!

Preparing for musical theatre camp

Kids coming into these camps might be expected to have had previous stage experience performing, singing and dancing. At camp, though, you will get to expand on previous experience and interact with a fresh new group of fellow performers. You'll also meet professionals.

In addition, camp allows you to:

  • Expand on your past experience
  • Work with a new group of fellow performers
  • Act, sing and dance in a fresh new musical you've not yet tried
  • Expand your network of friends and contacts within the theatre industry

Summer acting and vocal training from the best

Musical theatre camps will often have professional, experienced staff including the following:

  • Professional directors with experience. International performers and actors with Broadway experience love spreading their knowledge by leading summer camps like those listed here.
  • Voice training with the best. Vocal coaches at these theatre camps bring experience on the international stage, and will be well-prepared to work with kids, to expand their vocal range and improve singing.
  • Choreography professionals who will bring their own stage experience to the camp.
  • Acting coaches who will help you expand your dramatic range and improve your physical presence and explore different techniques you may not be familiar with.

Professionals you work with in this camp environment will also share their experiences in international productions, anecdotes from backstage Broadway, and tips on auditioning and improving stage presence.

Many camps will present a full musical theatre production, giving you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in a musical theatre production, working with others every day to bring the production together. You'll learn aspects of team-building and team-participation. You'll deepen your understanding of character development. Your experiences here will impact the rest of your life. 

Camps that focus on musical theatre might also offer specialized sessions that focus on things such as:

  • Acting and performing for the camera
  • Writing for stage and screen
  • Training for specific age groups. For example, pre-teens and tweens are at a different stage from older kids. Some camps may also have programs for older adults looking to move forward with their careers.
