Spend the summer working with professional actors, directors, and artisans. Every participant is invited to think, speak, and act imaginatively, critically, and creatively in an environment of inclusivity and safe play.

We are offering aftercare until 5:15 for $20 a day. (Except for Magic Trunk and High School Conservatory)
