2024 Summer Day Programming

This summer, Arlington Children’s Theatre is thrilled to present an expanded lineup of theatrical and musical adventures with four uniquely themed two-week sessions! Each dynamic and immersive session at our Summer Theatre Day Camp offers a blend of performance and theatre design skills, using popular musicals as a springboard for creativity and learning.

Students will spend their mornings engaged in lively theatre games and activities, delving into scene study, movement, voice & speech. This hands-on approach not only builds technique but also allows students to explore multiple roles and dive deeply into the material. In the afternoons, they’ll receive practical experience in various aspects of theatre production, from costume and scenic design to prop creation. Each session at our Summer Theatre Day Camp encompasses a comprehensive exploration of acting basics, singing, and stagecraft mastery, ensuring a robust and diverse theatre experience. Additionally, every session uniquely spotlights its own special area of focus, such as Lighting, Improv, Costumes, and Prop Mastery and Mask Making, providing specialized learning opportunities within the broad spectrum of theatre arts.

Our sessions culminate in a showcase where students demonstrate their newfound skills and creativity. Located at 735 Massachusetts Avenue, the Arlington Children’s Theatre is the perfect venue for budding artists to grow and shine.

Whether you’re joining us for one session or all four, each experience will be fresh and engaging. Register now and embark on a summer filled with theatrical exploration and endless fun at the Arlington Children’s Theatre!
