Childrens Theatre

REGISTER here for our summer children’s theatre programs:


Our most rigorous program for students 8 to 16  who possess a strong interest in the performing arts. Young artists hone their capabilities and strengths as performers over a five week rehearsal period, work with other talented students, and stage a full-scale musical production. This year, join in the fun of Disney’s High School Musical Jr.!


Over the course of 5 days, Dreamland Youth will collaborate with each other and their teaching artist to bring a scripted show to the stage. Through the rehearsal process, students will investigate the world of theatre through exercises and games that activate both their physical instrument and their imaginations  as we prepare for our final performance on Friday!

 Week 1 – July 2nd-6th – Epic Tale of Beauty and the Beast

A poor widow has plucked a forbidden rose from the Beast’s garden, and he allows her to go free in exchange for Beauty staying with him. From there, you know the story, and this one is delightfully told complete with a battle scene that includes talking furniture. The story is familiar, but the lessons about the power of love and beauty that is more than skin deep never get old.

Week 2 – July 9th-13th – Rap-Punzel

Rap-Punzel is a tasty mix of fresh, action-packed humor and wholesome fun, drizzled with giggles and good times for all.



Week 3 – July 16th-20th – Charming!

Once upon a time, the Wicked Stepmothers’ Association, tried to get rid of all the frogs, but one frog escaped and became Prince Charming!




Week 4- July 23rd-27th  – Wishful Thinking

Weird things are happening in English class as the students are supposed to be studying for a quiz on The Monkey’s Paw, a classic short horror story about making wishes that tamper with fate.



Everyone’s favorite Story of Peter Pan. You’ll meet the dog Nana, who can’t stop the Darling children from following Peter and Tinkerbell through the nursery open window to Neverland.



Over the course of 5 days, Dreamland Kids will create characters,  design costumes and props as they rehearse and perform adaptations of  beloved children’s stories!  Each week, we will bring a new tale  to life. To transition from storybook to script, campers explore theatre through games, improvisations and storyboarding as we prepare for our final performance.
