Exciting new adventures await at Summer Stage 2014

For 26 summers, children have enjoyed Summer Stage, a magical experience where participants use their imaginations to present shows, create films, or build sets. Since its first year, the program has grown from 65 campers to nearly 500. Summer Stage has become one of the longest-running visual and performing arts camps in South Jersey. What’s the secret of its success?

“Over the years, we’ve kept evolving our programs, always trying to be the best at what we do. We emphasize arts enrichment, but most importantly, we focus on fun!” said Ed Fiscella, Mainstage’s Producing Artistic Director and founder.

This year the fun embraces even more ages, programs and locations. Introducing Broadway Babies (entering k-1st grade) and Collaboration Station along with a series of week- long themed dance camps like Princess Tea Party Camp and Funky Feet Camp offered in the brand new Mainstage Studios: Blackwood and Washington Township.

“My girls can’t wait to return to Summer Stage. I really like how their minds are continually learning, even though for them, it’s just fun,” said Anne Finnegan of Stratford.

Programs also include Children’s Theatre for students entering 6th through 12th grades; the behind-the-scenes Technical Theatre and Video Film Production, for those entering 8th through 12th grades offered on the Blackwood Campus of Camden County College along with Broadway Dance 2014; Apprentice, for 4th and 5th graders. Kids Stuff, for children entering 2nd and 3rd grades, will be offered in two new locations: Washington Township and Blackwood. Stage Key, a before and after care program, helps to assist the working parents.

Most Summer Stage programs provide performance opportunities. In Children’s Theatre, each participant will have the chance to perform in one of the three shows, plus the final musical revue. This year, the season includes: Wonderland, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Beauty and the Beast and Broadway for Kids.

“Mainstage was my life while growing up. I started in the Apprentice Program, moved up and eventually worked as an assistant director,” said Billy Hart, who recently performed as a Disney Cruise Line performer. “It’s great to come back and witness its growth.”

Program fees range from $220 for a Kids Stuff session to $550 for the seven-week Children’s Theatre session. Summer Stage also offers an affordable before and after-camp program. Enjoy Summer Stage deepest discount when you register before March 31.
