This summer immerse yourself and flourish in one or all of our summer musical theater camps directed by theatre professionals who love theater and acting as much as you do.
With our new 1800 sq. ft. Black Box Theatre the campers will get real performance experience putting on a performance every Friday of every week of camp!
We accept boys and girls ages 6 -10, 10 to teen, beginners to advanced as well as offering Tots camps for our 2-5 year olds!
The campers will be dancing, singing and acting every day with daily dance warm ups , acting games, improvisations and a proper vocal warm up.
Ovation- School of Musical Theatre’s summer theater camps have been successfully providing major summer fun for kids all ages for 8 years!
We accept theater campers without auditions and our non-competitive philosophy ensures every actor is valued and respected.
Our camps create a tight knit community of young actors, supporting each other rather than competing against each other. The results are clear to see and hear on stage with our fun filled weekly productions and the smiles from all our actors and parents.
Whether you are a beginner wanting to try out a new dance style or a pre-professional wanting to keep in shape and hone your dance techniques, Ovation offers a class for you!
