ACT ONE Theatre School 2020
Join ACT ONE as we explore the world of theatre and create memories to last a lifetime! From Kindergarten through 12thgrade, ACT ONE Summer Camp promises fun, challenging classes, interesting material, sensitive teachers, and lasting friendships!
ACT ONE students develop their skills and take performance risks in an atmosphere of acceptance and fun. Classes are small, affording students the opportunity for private coaching. Students also participate in vocal & dance ensembles. In addition, our 5th– 12thgraders are offered a wide variety of electives listed below.
