Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park Summer Theatre Camp and Performance Academy

We believe theatre can be created by any person at any age. That’s what makes camp so exciting! Guided by passionate camp staff, our campers work together to make connections with audiences, each other and themselves, while learning skills that show up onstage and in real life. They learn performance techniques including musical theatre, stage combat, acting, rehearsal and performance — while at the same time exploring their individuality. In our inclusive and artistic environment, campers gain confidence, get moving, form new friendships and tap into their creativity while belting out showtunes and bringing awesome stories to life.

This year’s camps feature more performance options than ever with locations at the Playhouse in Mt. Adams, Mason and near Erlanger, Ky. Camps run June 3 – August 2. Before Care and After Care and scholarships are available.
