Programs for Youth

Summer Theater Camps for Grades K-5

Round House Theatre offers engaging programs for students of all ages. We inspire creativity, exercise imaginations, and promote artistic risk-taking, while developing critical thinking, cooperation, and confidence. We believe every child is an artist, and encourage them to explore every aspect of theater – acting, music, movement, design, and play creation – and the unique ways of telling stories through theater.

Summer Playmakers collaborate to create, design, rehearse, and perform a play. Every session introduces students to a special theatrical discipline as well as different ways of creating theater, from re-interpreting a classic folktale to creating from a story collage. The morning features classes that lead to an afternoon of creative experimentation, rehearsal, and performance. The culmination is an original story devised by the ensemble and shared at the end of the session with family and friends.
