MUSICAL THEATRE CAMP FOR ACTORS WITH AUTISM
Our final week of camp is dedicated to young artists and actors with autism spectrum disorder.

Campers will work on all aspects of musical theatre — exploring music, dance and acting. Make new friends, laugh a lot and enjoy the excitement of musical theatre. This week will be based on connection, collaboration and letting every camper find their own way to shine. Open to ages 9-25.
