Summer Arts Academies

Our Grades* 6-12 Academy runs May 30—June 9th, 2017 from 9:00 a.m.— 4:00 p.m.

Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure?  The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, whose belief in Harold’s power just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself.

Tuition- $160 and T-Shirt Included!

Auditions this year will take place early on Tuesday since we close Monday.  After being accepted into the camp, audition materials (script and CD with audition instructions) can be picked  May 23-26th during normal hours.

Final Showcase:  Friday, June 9 at 7 pm.

Weekday Activities include: Vocal Practice, Choreography, Acting Exercises, Rehearsal and Audition Process and Set/Props/Costumes/Makeup.


Our Grades* K-2  Academy  runs June 12—16th, 2017 from 9 a.m.—12 noon daily and our Grades 3—5th Academy runs June 12—15th from 1—4 p.m. Mon-Thurs. and Friday, June 16th— 9 a.m.—12 p.m.

Students will learn how to make animal like characters come to life on stage.   Throughout the camp, they will get to experience acting,  and dancing on a real live stage all while putting together a full Kids production.  Students also look forward to the arts and crafts center where they learn about the history of the Lion King and create set pieces, costumes, and artwork that goes along with the theme.    Cast members of the Lion King Kids show will be separated into “Prides” where they will learn about leadership, togetherness, and facing your fears.

The African savannah comes to life on our stage with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle… and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.

NOTE: Both age groups will be performing this show together.  Monday- Thursday camps will be separate, and Friday camp will be a joint rehearsal from  9 a.m.—12 noon.

  1. I am afraid I will miss information regarding this opportunity for my daughter. Is there a mailing list?
    Thank you!
