A pandemic might be changing things a little, but the Alliance Theatre isn’t letting it ruin their signature summer camps.

The Tony Award-winning theatre has announced they will be holding weekly virtual summer camps for age 3 through 12th grade, May 26 – August 7.

“The essential skills that come with making theatre – the collaboration, the building of the ensemble, the self-confidence,” says Christopher Moses, the Dan Reardon Director of Education and Associate Artistic Director. “These absolutely translate into the virtual space.”

How it works

  • Registered campers will receive a “camp in a box” package in the mail with everything needed for the week including art supplies, templates for crafts, activity sheets, and books.
  • As part of each day’s schedule, campers will meet with the Alliance’s professional teaching artists and fellow campers via the Zoom platform and will participate in virtual and at-home activities.
  • Each camp week will culminate with a virtual performance via Zoom.

“While the delivery of the camps may look different, the impact hasn’t changed a bit. Watching how this translated during our virtual spring break camp has me giddy about what’s possible this summer.”
