“Stage Directions”—Some Things to Keep in Mind

Memorizing lines and lyrics: If you memorize your material during rehearsals, great. But if not, don’t worry. There will be a teleprompter in the back of the theatre during the performance (shhh!).

Learning the choreography: While performing, you’ll be able to see the choreographer or a dance captain at the back of the theatre doing the dance moves.

Costumes: Campers provide their own evening clothes—tuxedos for men, gowns or cocktail dresses for women.  Our costume designer will be on hand at rehearsal to help with accessories and to make sure you look your best. For an additional fee, we will arrange to create a costume for you.

Inviting guests to the performance: Your friends and family are our favorite audience members. They are welcome to attend the performance as our guests. Just let us know in advance how many to expect. They can even come to the cast party at an additional charge (space is limited).

Tuition: $4,995

Terms: A $500 deposit holds your place. Non-refundable balance is due 60 days before your first session begins.
