Join us for Summer 2020 - our 31st Season!
Theater Camp at Middlesex County College under the direction of Taubenslag Productions runs for 8 weeks during the summer for kids entering 1st grade up to 16 years old. Whether they want to perform, create sets or costumes or be a counselor-in-training, we've got something for everyone. Campers can learn about all aspects of musical theater while also building confidence and self-esteem – all levels of experience or no experience at all are welcome!
Theater Camp teaches kids how to use performance & theater arts to break out of their shells, use creativity & come alive on stage - giving them the life skills needed to succeed! Our motto is, “When you try you're best, you can do ANYTHING” - by the end of summer, our campers really see this come true!
During the first 6 weeks, campers will produce an elaborate musical production EACH WEEK. Weeks 7 & 8 are reserved for the annual “Broadway Spectacular”. Roles are provided for ALL CAMPERS. All of our shows are original productions, many based on famous fairy tales and children's stories.
Each Friday afternoon there's even more fun and excitement with our cast party - complete with music, lights, group dances and contests. Cast parties are themed, such as “be a rock star”, pajama party, beach bash party; we even have a Theater Camp prom!
Afternoons are filled with tons of fun activities including swimming every day in the indoor Olympic-sized pool, outdoor and indoor games, scavenger hunts, charades, relay races, sing down, carnival and more! During our last week of the summer we divide campers into teams for our famous Color War competition!
Facilities and Staff
Held on the Main Stage of the Performing Arts Center on campus, Theater Camp is directed by the award-winning Children's Theater Company, Taubenslag Productions & supervised by New Jersey Teachers with combined experience of over 30 years in teaching & children's theater so you can be sure your child is cared for with an experienced and dedicated staff. Most of our camp counselors were campers themselves.
Theater Camp also offers special TEEN programs; Tech, Teen Scenes and Counselor-in-Training. “Tech” is for campers 12 to 14 years old where they function as the stage crew; painting scenery, organizing props & sewing & designing costumes.
Our Counselors-in-Training (CIT) program is also very popular with Teens. Our CITs shadow counselors throughout the day and are responsible for a variety of tasks such as directing a song or scene, choreographing a dance number and distributing literature. CITs admission is by application only – see our website for details.
Theater Camp even has a Trip to Broadway! For full-day campers in Session 3, your kids will have the chance to experience the magic of seeing a professional show in NYC when Theater Campers take a field trip to see a Broadway show - this year's show will be announced later in the spring.
