Summer fun

Thanks to all our campers for a great summer!

Kids camps at the Shawnee Theatre gives youth as young as kindergarten and as old as high school the opportunity to learn news skills, perform on stage and have a blast during the summer.

Read about our 2017 camps in the Greene County Daily World.

Registrations are now closed for 2018. Below was our camps for 2018. We're excited for next summer!


Let's put on a play

June 4 – 8, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Final performance is 7 p.m. on June 8th. | Grades: K-12

Join Genese Gee-Schmidtke of OurCorner Performing Arts, Washington, D.C. and create a show! This camp consists of acting techniques, improv games, characterization techniques, playwriting basics, and a brief introduction to technical theatre. These mini workshops will serve as learning tools to prepare the campers to write, produce, and perform their own show. The show is a culmination of campers discovering their inner-creative selves, through the production of personified respect, creativity, and passion for the human race and surrounding communities.

Camp fee includes a daily snack, camp t-shirt, two tickets for the performance and a pizza dinner on performance day.
