Please read the following information carefully as you consider enrolling your student for this unique opportunity. 

If your student participates in drama camp, he/she must:

  • Attend all auditions, sessions, rehearsals, and performances. Please ensure beforehand that there are no conflicts in your schedule. 
  • Be prepared to work hard. The schedule can be fairly grueling. Be sure to keep the maturity of your younger children in mind when registering. Elementary students are not involved in learning about makeup, props, sets, etc. and often there is a lot of time spent sitting still, not talking to your neighbor and being patient. If this is a challenge for your child, consider giving them one more year of maturity.


  • Registration is open until audition day or until full.
  • Registration is secured with your online submission AND payment. At least half of the payment due needs to be received within two weeks of registration. Payment must be received in full by auditions.
  • Attendance is mandatory for all auditions, rehearsals, and performances. Be sure there are no conflicts in your schedule.
  • Ages 6 through 12th grade.
  • Elementary musical and a Jr / Sr High School play.
  • Everyone who registers is in the play! Auditions are to determine parts.
