2011 Summer Camp

Discover the difference that theatre can make in your child’s life.  At American Stage we believe that studying the dramatic arts can provide students with skills they can take directly into the classroom and beyond.  We provide enriching experiences in a positive, inspiring environment that foster a child’s communication skills, confidence, and creative expression.  Students learn to work effectively as a group and have a lot of fun along the way.  Let American Stage transform your child’s summer into something magical and rewarding!

Summer Camp meets Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm.  Pre-Care and After-Care are available. Pre-Care meets from 8am-9am and After-Care meets from 3pm-5pm.  Classrooms are broken down into age groups of 5-7 and 8-12
