Due to limited attendance, theatre camp has been cancelled.
  We hope to be back with a week long campus-based camp next year! 

Join the fun, exploring theatre in virtual sessions with students from across the region!  Each day will include interactive sessions where you'll learn new areas of theatre craft, ranging from acting and movement to costuming and auditioning skills.  Sessions will include engaging exercises, games, and interactive techniques to keep your interest and ensure growth.  Imagine how much you'll grow when learning from university theatre professors who have extensive experience in professional theatre.

It's easy!  All you need is a good internet connection and a computer or portable device capable of running a Zoom session.

CMU Virtual Theatre Camp is capped at 20 participants so you won't get lost in a crowd.  Camp cost is just $50, and it is open to students age 14-18.   Several campers interested from last year are all ready to go, so sign up soon and reserve your space!
