Broadway Musical Director Joe Elefante is once again at the helm of this popular camp! This year's camp theme is "Broadway by Name". We will be performing fantastic musical theater songs with names in their titles! You'll be amazed at how many there are! Is your name in a musical theater song?

Morning Session - In the morning we participate in skill-based classes in dance, acting and musical theater.

Lunch - During nice weather we will eat on the patio at Zita's; campers can bring money for ice cream.

Wildcard Session - After lunch there will be a "wildcard" session in which we do something different each day. Past wildcards have includes: master classes with Billy Elliot’s Stephanie Kurtzuba, master classes with film, T.V. and Broadway casting directors Paul Russell and Bobby Cline, workshop with technical director Brian Lynch, Hip-Hop Choreography, Theater Dance with Laura Chaneski, Playwriting, Poster Design, Musical Theater History and Voice Class.

Afternoon Session (Performance Workshop) - The last two hours of camp is our Performance Workshop, where we will be preparing for our performance which will be held on the Friday night at the end of each session, onstage at the beautiful Ridge Performing Arts Center!

Musical Theater Camp is divided into 4 age groupings: Campers entering their last year of Pre-K through 2nd grade ("The Littles"); campers entering 3rd through 5th grade ("The Elems"); campers entering 6th through 8th grade ("The Mids"); and campers entering 9th through 12 grade ("The Highs"). "The Elems" and above follow the above-listed morning class rotations within their respective age group, but at lunchtime and beyond all age groups combine for wildcards and full company rehearsal. "The Littles" follow their own specialized schedule, which covers acting, singing, dancing, puppetry, arts & crafts and more, but which does not adhere to a set morning rotation. "The Littles" often combine with the other age divisions and with the full company to rehearse small- and large-group numbers.
