February 23, 2017 – Where can you find characters from Disney Frozen, make-believe reptiles from Repticon, fun with LEGO®s and large-scale musicals 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. Many of the summer camps conclude with unique themed showcase performances.

The two largest camp shows will be performed on the Theatre’s stage: the Senior Conservatory’s Guys and Dolls and the Junior Conservatory’s James and the Giant Peach, 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, improv 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, express their creativity, build confidence and have the opportunity to perform in a safe, supportive environment.”

A great way to introduce young children to theatre, the Conservatory’s vacation camp offerings include a five-day Adventures in Space (grades K-2) and Star Wars (grades 3-5)-themed spring break camp (March 20 – 24) and the beloved Junior and Senior Conservatory summer camps (grades 3-5 and 6-12). The Senior Conservatory will take place June 5 – 23 (with full performances of Guys and Dolls on June 23 and 24), while the Junior Conservatory will take place July 10 – 28 (with full performances of James and the Giant Peach, Jr.. on July 28 and 29).

Other camp options include a one-week LEGO®s Camp! for grades K-2 and a one-week Maltz Got Talent! Camp for grades 3-5 (both June 26 – 30); a three-day Improv and Comedy Camp! for grades K-2 and 3-5 and a three-day audition-only Dance Company Camp with Brian Andrews (all July 5 - 7); three sessions of one-week Dance Intensive Camps for grades 6-12 (June 26 – 30, July 10 – 14 and July 31 – August 4); a one-week Disney Frozen Camp! for grades K-2 and a one-week Repticon Camp! for grades 3-5 (both July 31 – August 4).
