SEUSSICAL™ and Disney’s Little Mermaid, Jr. onstage at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre

February 5, 2015 – Where can you find robots, flying, spying, mermaids and Dr. Seuss under one roof?

At the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s popular Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts camp programs, of course!

With a flexible schedule, budding young performers will participate in a broad range of theatre-related activities, including acting, dancing, singing, prop-making, improvisation, storytelling and more. Each summer camp concludes with a unique themed showcase performance.

The two largest camp shows will be performed on the Theatre’s stage: the Senior Conservatory’s SEUSSICAL™ and the Junior Conservatory’s Disney’s Little Mermaid, Jr. The musicals will be performed complete with professional production values: sets, costumes, lights, a full orchestra and more. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.

“Our vacation camps have something for everyone, from dance, magic and musical theatre to comedy,” said Julie Rowe, director of education for the Conservatory. “Our goal is to make sure that all of our students have fun, build confidence, express their creativity and have the opportunity to experience being part of a performance.”

A great way to introduce young children to theatre, the Conservatory’s vacation camp offerings include a five-day Minion (grades K-2) and Harry Potter (grades 3-5)-themed spring break camp (March 21 – 25) and the beloved Junior and Senior Conservatory summer camps (grades 3-5 and 6-12).

Camp for grades K-2 and a four-day I Spy…Camp for grades 3-5 (both July 5 - 8); and two sessions of one-week Dance Intensive Camps for grades 6-12 (July 11-15 and August 1-5).
