Youth Programs




2016 Summer Performing Arts Camp

Tabard Theatre's Summer Performing Arts Youth Camp is a fun musical theatre adventure for youth of all skill levels! Children are given the opportunity to experience the many facets of musical theatre in a hands on setting. For each session, we provide different workshops in the mornings that focus on a particular aspect of theatre, such as Improv, Dance, and Set Design. In the afternoon we rehearse a short review or mini musical that they will perform at the end of the week. Come and explore your imagination!

Each session ends with a Final Showcase performance. Act I is a sample of the camp workshops and Act 2 is a musical production. All Showcases are free to attend. Musicals are online, but are subject to change.

Our camps focus on a processed based education in the performing arts. With this philosophy, we limit camp size to minimum of 10 campers, maximum of 25 campers.
