Make Em Laugh - Summer Camp

Our Musical Theater program has been expanding for the past 4 years, with more and more kids getting interested in becoming performers who can do it all (acting, singing, and dancing). Our yearly recital showcases the hard work these kids put in week after week under the direction of Ms. Christine Orta. Last season we were able to perform for the community and sharpen our skills further. This season we have our sights on continuing to expand with the addition of our vocal room and offering private lessons in voice. We will get innovative with technology and work on some online productions until we can perform live again!
