The Theatre Lab’s summer camps are fun, high-energy programs that allow young people (grades 1-8) to fully engage their imaginations as they experience the thrill of creating live theatre. From learning the basic techniques of acting for the stage, to developing improvisation and physical comedy skills, to putting it all together in a public performance, it’s a summer your child will never forget.
Taught by some of Washington’s best-known theatre professionals and educators, The Theatre Lab’s summer camps are a great way to discover the joys of drama, explore the creative self, and make wonderful new friends.
Campers participate in a wide variety of theatre activities—including improvisation, scene study, storytelling, creative writing, group singing, and mime—all taught by caring artists and teachers dedicated to meeting each child at his or her level. Classes emphasize drama games and exercises designed to increase spontaneity, engage the imagination, promote self-confidence, and encourage ensemble spirit. At the end of each session, students share their work in a free performance open to the public.
At The Theatre Lab, we also understand that kids can’t live by drama alone. That’s why each day also includes group games and sports, arts and crafts, and social time for relaxing and playing board games.
