Fun roles for all abilities!  The perfect camp for theatre newcomers and lifelong fans!

In this musical theatre camp, kids will develop their “actors’ tools” as they explore the magical world of musical theatre and participate in arts activities to create simple props and scenic elements for the show.

Kids will have a blast as they learn improvisation, movement, singing, script reading, scene work, stage craft and much more through energetic games and activities that integrate dance, movement, music, and drama.

This program combines a foundation of community, mental focus, space awareness, fine and large motor skills, language and confidence, and vast amounts of fun!

Attendance at the Auditions/Family Meeting on May 22 is mandatory.  This will be held at Lakeshore Players Theatre’s new location: 4941 Long Avenue, White Bear Lake, MN 55110

  • Participants will receive their scripts and music at this meeting.
  • Not all participants will have speaking parts, but all will have singing parts.
  • Note: Accommodations may be made for students who are uncomfortable singing on stage as part of a group, but willingness to perform is expected.
