Throughout these two-week sessions, campers will be guided through actor training and theatre games that professional actors regularly use to sharpen their craft and technique, exercising their minds, bodies, voices and imaginations. A portion of each day's session, am and pm, will be devoted to rehearsing a short performance piece to be performed on the final day of camp.  Afternoons will be devoted to rehearsal of a short musical theatre piece. Under the guidance of a professional music director, each student will learn to use their voices safely and effectively.

What People are Saying About MVCCT's Summer Camps

"Maggie was excited to go to summer camp every day! She loves being with fellow dramatic kids who enjoy being on stage and performing. The instructors embraced their uniqueness and cultivated it. Maggie looks forward to auditioning for the performances during the year and attending summer Camp next year.​"

 

"This is my daughter’s 5th year of attending your summer camp. She has had a great experience every year. The teachers are caring and passionate about sharing their craft with the students and that conveys itself in every aspect. She worked under Ryan for the first time this session and really enjoyed her experience."

"My child really enjoyed this camp. She was very excited about her role in one of the plays and practiced her lines and songs every evening. She has never done drama before and it was a real challenge for her to memorize so many lines and song lyrics and deliver them on stage for an audience. I'm glad the camp challenged her. The performances were great and the kids were very talented."

"I have witnessed a drastic improvement in my son’s singing and acting skills, as well as an increase in confidence as a result of participating in MVCCT theater for the last two years. Thank you!"

"These are the best summer camp counselors we've ever had. All were so enthusiastic and involved - the kids loved them and had a great time from the first hour of camp."
