SCR’s Summer Programs have been moved online. At this time the safety of our students and their families is our highest priority, and we feel we cannot safely provide group theatre classes under current health guidelines. For questions, email education@scr.org

Online Summer Acting Workshop, Musical Theatre Classes

Fun-Filled Theatre Camps for Kids and Teens (Grades 5-12) Online
The skills developed—and explored—in SCR’s Summer Acting Workshop classes build confidence and self-esteem. The two-week camp is designed for students new to SCR and introduces them to solving creative problems through inspiration and innovation! Enthusiastic and experienced professional artists will help students, via ​Zoom, explore and deepen their understanding of the craft of acting and strengthen important life skills.

What's a day like at the camp? Class time follows, as students join their age groups for two lively hours of interactive instruction in voice, movement, character development and more—led by SCR’s staff of theatre professionals. The final hour is spent with special guests who bring to life various aspects of theatre, such as design, improvisation, combat, singing and playwriting—it's something different every day. The two-week ​camp concludes on Saturday with students sharing their work via Zoom in a demonstration for invited family and friends.

Students and parents love the summer camp atmosphere.
