Registration will open April 1st and is due one hour prior to placements. Registration fee is $50 (scholarships available).

Placements will take place on June 17th from 12pm- 4pm. On that date you will receive a packet of information regarding the rest of the camp days, and you will be asked to sign up to volunteer to assist with the production (bringing snack, helping build the set on a specific day, helping backstage or ushering etc.) 

The mandatory parent meeting will be held on Monday June 26th from 5:30-6:30pm. At this meeting everyone will receive scripts and volunteer sign ups will be finalized. 

Rehearsals will start on Wednesday July 26th- 28th and July 31st through August 4th from 1pm-4:30pm

Since this is an 8 day camp, all students will need to come to the first day on July 26th prepared with their lines and lyrics memorized and ready to learn the rest of the show. 

Performances run August 4th at 7pm and 5th at 2pm.
