"Who’s Who” on the Matthews Playhouse Summer Camp Staff

If you know a child who would benefit from a new experience in a fun and supportive environment, Matthews Playhouse Summer Camp 2022 is the place to be! With themed camps for ages 4–18 years old, children can participate in full or half-day camps during the months of June, July, and August!

The Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts is known for its outstanding live theatre productions, which have delighted audiences in the greater Charlotte region for more than 2 decades. But we’re also known for our outstanding Summer Camp sessions, which have served thousands of children in our region since Matthews Playhouse began in 1995. We won’t go into all the reasons why Summer Camp at Matthews Playhouse is among the best in the state (here are six just in case you’re curious), but in this post, we’re highlighting our Matthews Playhouse Summer Camp staff!

Our summer camp staff is made up of professional actors, directors, musicians, choreographers, theatre educators and former School of Theatre students who loved our program so much, they are back to pass along what they learned to the next generation.
