*Please note that we have added a second Youth Theater Camp for the afternoon hours of June 16-20. The morning camp is full and unavailable for registration. Follow the link to register for the afternoon camp.

During the course of this camp the students will be devising a sharing for parents, friends, and family based off of the Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith.  Students will learn the value of playing well with others, active listening, and how it's totally okay to be your wonderful weird and silly self.  Coaxing shy young people out of their shells and helping more exuberant kids learn to focus their energy is pretty par for the course.

If you have a teen ages 10-16, check out our one day improvisation workshop HERE
