Creative Fun! Our 5-day camps provide hands-on experience in a real theater. Under the guidance of theater professionals, each group creates, writes, produces, and performs their show on the last day of camp.

IMPORTANT: Summer Camps will be held at our new home in the Father Ryan Arts Center located at 420 Chartiers Avenue; McKees Rocks, PA 15136. We are so excited about being back on stage and using the wonderful facilities in our new home!

 


Workshop Groups

This highly structured workshop, geared for young attention spans, includes a variety of exciting, fun-filled activities: puppet, costume, scenery and prop-making, theater games, music, and movement. While having a great time, your child will learn to listen, follow directions, remember, focus, accomplish objectives, take turns, work with others in a group situation, compromise, perform in front of an audience, and use the imagination.
