Every year, our Summer camps, workshops, and performance opportunities for kids delight, enchant, and challenge young people ages 3-18 with a wide range of offerings.
Our youngest students can participate in fun Art and Imagination-based camps that teach the fundamentals of creative expression, teamwork, and even the creation or performance of a short play! The Summer Academy is a perennial favorite for 8-13 year olds, with kids working on a hilarious one-hour play that they perform at the end of each 3-week session. Middle and high school ages can enroll in challenging Skill-Building Workshops that focus on anything from Shakespeare to playActing to performing Shakespeare to Audition Skills and Musical Theatre to Playwriting, and more.
For three weeks, kids work with Walden Theatre directors on a fully-produced play. This year’s play is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the beloved tale of a young woman finding her way in a magical world of talking animals and off-kilter royalty adapted by Diana Grisanti. Students every year get the exciting experience of rehearsing and performing a play complete with sets, props, and costumes. Several sessions available.
