Summer Theatre Camp

About Our Camp

Arts Enter’s Summer Theatre Camps are multi-week day camps, designed to provide a creative theatrical experience for students ages 7-16. Camps are offered on a variety of themes including Creative Drama, Musical Theater, Arts & Crafts, and more. Campers will experience the theatrical process from start to finish as they work together to produce a musical theater performance. Their journey will include instruction in acting, singing, and dancing as well as how to put it all together to form strong characters for our performance from an experienced staff. Whether your child is going on stage for the first time or is a seasoned veteran, they will enjoy this camp and will end their experience with two performances on the Historic Palace Theatre stage. Arts Enter’s Summer Theatre Camps are a great way for kids to stretch their creative muscles, try something new, make friends, learn new skills, and work as an ensemble, all in the joyful spirit of summer.

The second camp is scheduled for weekdays,10 am to 4 pm, July 31 to August 11 with a 7 pm performance on the 11th and a 3 pm performance on the 12th. The show for that camp is called Don’t Stop believin’!- Kids we need your help in saving the community center.  Come be part of the fun!!  Here is the promo text for it:

It’s time to get your gleek on!  The Ethel Lampert Community Center has seen better days and may soon see its final days unless the teens, volunteers and staff find a way to save it.  Some sleazy city council members want to bulldoze the place to redevelop and commercialize the neighborhood and bring them gobs of sales tax revenue, but that’s not stopping the teens who frequent the community center.  From basketball players to computer nerds to artists, these down-on-their-luck inner-city kids have no place else to go, and losing the center would mean losing their home away from home.  When they hear of a new television reality contest for glee clubs, they decide to form their own and try out.  If they win top prize, they’ll earn enough money to keep the center open.  But working together doesn’t come naturally for these tough, independent teens, and they’re not sure they’ll be able to pull it off, especially with a city council that’s bribing the egotistical celebrity judges, an annoyed (and annoying!)  neighbor harping on them at every turn and a history of no one believing in them.  Bursting with large rock and pop chorus numbers and a powerful, anthemic finale, this energetic, contemporary musical will bring out the gleek in everyone!
