There Are Lots Of Great Options To Give Your Kids A Summer Full Of Fun
Broadway Palm Summer Theater Camps
Our Musical Theatre Intensive camp is geared toward students with multiple levels of dance, voice and theatre experience. This popular week-long camp is taught and led by Broadway Palm Director and Choreographer Amy McCleary, local performer Kiersten Benzing and features special guests – actors and actresses straight from the Broadway Palm stage.
Each session offers specialized courses in auditioning, vocal techniques, improv, scene study and dance. The week culminates with a performance at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre facilities, which provides plenty of space for responsible distancing. Step on stage and shine with the excitement and magic of live musical theatre!
For grades: 7 – 12
Please note: this camp is kept at a low-capacity to keep students responsibly distanced. Campers, camp instructors, camp volunteers and Broadway Palm staff are required to wear face masks at all times when inside the building and when social distancing is not possible.
