Musical Theater Camp 2023

I just want to let you know that my daughter is having the time of her life at camp! She gets the biggest smile on her face talking about what she’s learned. And she’s made a new friend! Today she said,

“Usually I can’t wait for the weekend, but now I don’t want the weekend to come because of theater camp.”

Thank you!

I can’t believe how amazing the show was! How did the kids learn so much so quickly?

Join our happy campers and staff of top-notch theater professionals and arts educators for an exciting summer of musical theater training, performance, friendship and fun! This super-popular theater camp is the perfect fit for any student, whether they are new to the stage or experienced performers.

Camp is held at the incredibly spacious, state-of-the-art performance and rehearsal facilities at The Pingry School’s upper school campus at 131 Martinsville Road in Basking Ridge.

Each two-week session culminates in an original performance. The show is a multi-act theatrical revue highlighting the talents of all of our campers. Our campers love doing the show in the revue format more than performing in a named play, because in our show everyone has a chance to shine! See the video on this page for a peek at our past shows. Our overall theme for Summer 2023 is Stage and Screen, where we’re featuring songs from movies turned musicals and musicals turned movies! The campers will be backed by a live band under the baton of Broadway Musical Director Joe Elefante!
