Performance Camps

Matthews Playhouse offers the following full-day Performance camps.

Roles: PLEASE NOTE: Not all actors will have large roles in the plays.  Actors will be placed in their roles based on age, experience, ability and desire.  EVERYONE will play a part and be included in the productions. It is important to remember that while every child cannot get a lead role, every role is crucial to tell a meaningful story on stage. There will be times when your child is watching and listening to rehearsal while we rehearse scenes they are not in.  We will take breaks from rehearsal throughout the day to play theatre games, eat snacks and do acting exercises and warm-ups to enhance the fun and learning experience in the world of theatre arts.

On the 1st Day of Camp, parents are required to stay for a 15 minute orientation meeting

Camper must be camp age by May 1, 2017

A 2017 Registration Fee of $25 will be charged per Camper (includes T-Shirt)
