Summer Stage

Summer Theater Program

Step into the spotlight at Summer Stage from Camps ‘R’ Us, where the magic of musical theatre comes to life! This special program is an extraordinary journey into the heart of musical theatre, focusing on the three foundational pillars: singing, dancing, and acting.

Our workshops are designed to inspire and educate, led by an exceptional team of instructors, including working actors and directors. They bring their wealth of experience and knowledge directly to our Campers, offering a superior education in an atmosphere that is both nurturing and exhilarating.

Every day is a new stage for learning and growth. Students will immerse themselves in the vibrant world of musical theatre, honing their skills in each discipline. Whether they’re belting out a show tune, perfecting a dance routine, or bringing a character to life, our Campers will experience the joy and excitement of professional theatre training.

Summer Stage is more than just camp; it’s a community of passionate, like-minded individuals who come together to celebrate and create. It’s an environment where young talents flourish, friendships are forged, and dreams are nurtured.

Join us for a summer of theatrical adventure, where fun meets professionalism in a supportive environment, and every student has the chance to shine!



Program Overview

Our musical theatre program gives campers in grades 3-8 the unique opportunity to work on the three essential disciplines that make up musical theatre: singing, dancing, and acting. Staff include prominent local musical theatre actors and directors, who will provide a fantastic education in a fun and supportive environment.

2024 Production

Our summer musical theatre program is absolutely thrilled to announce that we will be producing the youth version of “The Wizard of Oz”! This timeless classic, with its enchanting story of adventure, friendship, and the magic of home, provides a fantastic opportunity for our young performers to showcase their talents in acting, singing, and dancing.

We are excited to bring to life the colorful world of Oz, complete with its beloved characters—Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion—on our stage.

This production promises not only to entertain but also to inspire creativity and imagination in our young cast and the audience alike. It’s a wonderful chance for our campers to be part of something truly magical, and we can’t wait to embark on this journey over the rainbow and see where it leads.

Join us as we make our way down the Yellow Brick Road in what promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience!
