CAMP MUSIC CIRCUS is a two-week musical theatre day camp in which aspiring artists, ages 9-12, develop self-confidence, character, and presentation skills through collaborative performance.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers are immersed in a singing, acting, and dancing rehearsal process that fosters success regardless of experience levels.
Theatre games, improvisational activities, and role-playing add energy and fun to the summer experience. Camp culminates in a performance of a musical written just for them, featuring songs from our Broadway At Music Circus season: BEAUTIFUL, CINDERELLA, THE MUSIC MAN, THE ADDAMS FAMILY, RAGTIME, and RENT.
As part of their musical theatre education and enrichment, Camp Music Circus participants attend the final dress rehearsal of the Broadway At Music Circus production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY.
“The camp really helped my daughter to focus on areas she wants to grow and improve. It was great exposure to musical direction, dance, choreography, acting and production aspects. She is now more interested in learning about Broadway musicals!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Do campers need to have previous Musical Theatre training?
A: We welcome campers of all experience levels. Our education team will engage each participant with goals for growth wherever they are in their artistic exploration.
Q: Do campers need to attend every day?
A: As part of an ensemble, any missed time leaves your child at a disadvantage. Because our time together is so short, this means that your child misses an opportunity to learn choreography, music, or staging and may not be able to be part of a number in the show. Please support their success by making sure that they don’t miss a minute of camp.
Q: Do you offer scholarships?
A: Full and partial scholarships are available. Please indicate your need in the application.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: Campers are responsible for bringing their own snacks and lunches.
Q: What COVID policies are in place?
A: All campers and staff must be fully vaccinated. If your child has an approved vaccine exemption, proof of a negative test result within 48 hours of the first day of each week of camp will be required. Masks are currently not required, but we will be following the local guidance on COVID prevention and as the date gets closer, we will communicate any updates.
Q: What is your payment and cancellation policy?
A: Once your application is processed you will receive an email from our Education and Community Engagement department with a link to make your payment. Your payment secures your spot for Camp Music Circus 2023. The full amount of tuition can be refunded up until June 19, 2023.
