(Ages 8-10)

In the 35th year of Summer Stage, our Apprentice Program continues to build its new look. Campers who only want a taste of theater can join us for one session, while those who wish to immerse themselves more can participate in both sessions and take part in two major productions. Apprentice is an excellent place for your young theater apprentice, ages 8 to 10, to spend an entire day building confidence, performance skills, and long-lasting friendships.
