Every camper is cast in the show. There is no formal audition, but a brief assessment of their skills on the first day. Campers are given their roles on day 2. Typically (though not always), larger roles go to older students. Songs & scenes are assigned based on age & skill level. While we cannot guarantee every student will get a large role, we try to make sure everyone has a "moment to shine." Some examples of a moment to shine are: a solo, speaking line, duet/trio, featured dancer/dance moment, or actor in a small scene. Not everyone is guaranteed a line or solo, but we do attempt to give everyone something special! Every camper will perform in several numbers and/or scenes in the show.

What do I need for the show? You will need your camp t-shirt, black pants/leggings, tied shoes, and basic makeup including foundation, blush, lipstick, and eyeliner (even boys).

What is the performance like? For the final performance, campers will perform an entire show, learned in just 2 weeks! It's a "camp version," meaning campers perform in their camp t-shirts and black pants/leggings.  We try to make sure every camper is in multiple songs/scenes.

At this point (February 2023) we are planning on a LIVE performance but will update as needed.

  • Campers are grouped roughly by age.
  • We cannot guarantee that children of the same age will be placed in the same group.
  • Each Camper will be given a unique card that identifies your camper. Please place it in your front car window or have it available on your phone to show our staff at pick-up. Campers will not be released from camp unless their unique identifying card is shown to staff.
  • If your camper is a walker/biker, please let us know. We are not responsible for safety in the parking lot, crossing the street or on the grounds after the camper exits the building.
  • Parents/caregivers who are more than 10 minutes late to pick up their campers may be subjected to a financial penalty.
