Campers can choose one character from the history of musical theatre or plays that they are interested in studying, and with guidance, take a thorough examination of that character’s arc and journey throughout their respective show.

Students will then begin work on two selected songs, and one scene from their chosen role. Students gain a first-hand experience of the work that goes into preparing to play a leading role on any stage, whether it be Broadway, regionally, or elsewhere. Students work one-on-one with a teacher on scene and character work to deepen their understanding of the text, through song and script analysis.

Bay Street Theater Student Academy encourages collaborative work, and students will be afforded the opportunity to work with one another on group scenes from their selected shows.

The weeklong camp will culminate with the students presenting their choice of the roles, songs, and scenes for family, friends, and members of the community on Friday, August 4th.
