What To Expect

Most camps at PPAS are focused on teaching the three main elements of stage performing: Singing, Acting, and Dancing. We believe that the best way to help performers grow is to give them opportunities to PERFORM! Throughout the duration of camp, campers will work with professional performers and teachers who will give them all the tools they need for a successful performance. Through theatre games, scripted work, directed activities, practice, and repetition, campers will learn more about their bodies, their minds, and the stories that they can tell!

 

What Should I Bring?

A lot of that depends on the camp in which you’re enrolled! Each individual camp page lists if there are any specific things to bring. Most will require comfortable clothing and not much else.

1/2 Day Campers should bring a snack and a water bottle.

Full Day Campers should bring a snack, a water bottle, and a lunch.
