The First Act’s primary mission is to get students thinking about how they can make a difference through their passion for the theater. This year’s summer camp is designed to provide middle- and high-school youth with a place to nurture their creative instinct and develop a connection to the stage. In addition to providing a venue for performing, the camp will also focus on the development of the three tenants of musical theater (dancing, singing and acting) needed to be successful in the performing arts.

9:00-9:30 Morning Announcements/ Warm-up
9:30-10:30 Dance Call

Young people need a venue to find their voice and express their ideas. Our theatrical process empowers creative, intellectual, and emotional growth, making young people bolder, wiser, and more compassionate on stage and in life. Students explore teamwork and collaboration, develop self-confidence, and improve communication skills and acting technique. The camp will allow students the opportunity to get a truly transformative experience under the guidance of seasoned theatre artists.
