In-Person - Summer Drama Camps: June 7 - July 31th, 2021


Center Stage Academy summer camps are a FUN and creative way to experience the arts and build self-confidence. 

Our youth spend two weeks working on a musical that they will get to perform on the Center’s Main Stage!

CSA Summer Camps introduce your children to the world of theater and performance. Each two-week session is jam packed with everything your child needs to know about musical theater. In this exciting, hands-on “Theater Boot Camp” your child will experience the thrill of auditions, casting, rehearsing and participating in a live performance to a limited audience! Most of all-they have a blast as they work as a team to create a show they can be proud of!

​​The two weeks culminates in a live performance to a limited audience with set, props, and lighting. Each camper receives a show t-shirt, a link to a recording of the performance and two complimentary tickets for their family to use during the performances.
