Theater Camps

Bay Street Theater’s camps and classes are aimed at fostering students’ wide range of interests and abilities in the arts. Our variety of offerings provides students of any age between 4 and 18 with opportunities to experiment with and develop their skills in areas of theater from Puppetry to Musical Theater to Shakespeare.

 

 

Spring Theater Camps

In this camp, students will work together with a teaching artist to create and perform their very own musical! In addition to developing ideas for an original script, students will learn standard songs and choreography that culminate in a presentation on the Bay Street Theater Mainstage on Friday for family and friends. Students will receive instruction in acting, singing, dance, and musical theater history; and they will also participate in creative theater games and improvisations that help to develop communication skills and encourage them to stretch their imaginative abilities.
