Children's Classes & Workshops


JULY 28-AUG 01 and AUG 04-AUG 08

Hey, kids! Get into the act this summer and experience being on the Marion Palace Theatre stage. Since 1998, young thespians have treasured these summer camp experiences and this year instructor Johnny Steiner is back to lead young actors through the production process of performing a stage mini-musical. Students will learn theatre terminology, lines, cues, songs and dance numbers, gain acting skills, performance knowledge and most important of all... these camps are FUN!

Camps run Monday through Thursday. On Friday all campers come together for rehearsals at 3pm with a final performance for friends and family at 5:30pm. Please note each camp is separated by age group. Children ages 6-8 will meet from 10 am to noon while students ages 9-14 will meet 1pm to 4pm. Snacks will be served mid session. Spaces fill quickly, so please register early!

Hey, Aesop! Ages 6-8 years

This hysterical musical comedy is inspired by several well-known fables. Written by Johnny Steiner, the mini-musical features familiar folk songs and a fun story-line ideal for children age 6-8 years. The fun continues when the kids dress up as Aesops animals - but watch out - these entertaining stories all have a moral!

Camp fees: $65 non-members | $61.75 siblings | $58.50 PCAA member


Joust! A Mighty Medieval Musical Ages 9-14 years

Imagine a world where all weapons were replaced by musical instruments! Welcome to the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table like you’ve never seen it or heard it before. Complete with jousting knights, delightful damsels, and court jesters, this original musical by John Jacobson and Roger Emerson is designed specifically for this age group. Kids will love the original songs and spending the week in medieval times. On guard!

Camp fees: $75 non-members | $71.25 siblings | $67.50 PCAA member
