Award-Winning Theater Camp Perfect for All Kids!


Join us for our 32nd SEASON and give your kids a summer they’ll never forget at our national, award-winning Theater Camp! Our very popular program runs for 8 weeks during the summer for teens & kids entering 1st grade up to 16 years old. We provide a fun, safe environment where campers can learn about all aspects of musical theater with an emphasis on building their confidence and self-esteem – and all levels of experience or no experience at all are welcome!

Our focus is on building kids' confidence and self-esteem – using theater to teach kids how to break out of their shells, and become confident in public speaking and their everyday life. And it works! Our company won a national award for Best Children's Program in the US! Theater is the perfect medium to teach kids how to be more self-assured while boosting their confidence with our “try-your-best” philosophy. And studies show that kids who are exposed to and participate in Theater are more well-rounded, contributing to their successes. Whether they want to pursue a career in performance or not – the skills we teach will help them succeed in life!

Theater Camp has both half-day and full-day sessions. We always recommend our full-day program to give kids a mixture of both theater and summer camp activities. It’s Theater in the morning and fun Camp activities and games in the afternoons. Also, by staying the full-day, Theater Campers are able to have even more fun with each other while competing for that week’s prize! Taubenslag Productions Theater Camp is an amazing, unique day camp where your child can develop their confidence and talent in a safe and fun-filled environment. We take our responsibility in keeping children safe & happy very seriously and give our campers a joyous summer – one they’ll never forget! It's also one of the most affordable summer Theater Camps in all of New Jersey. We even have before and after care if needed.

Fantastic Fridays

Fridays are truly fantastic at Theater Camp! First, our campers perform for an audience of parents, family, friends and peers. Two shows are held every Friday at 9am & 11am under our outdoor colorful BIG TOP PERFORMANCE TENT where all our shows will be performed. After lunch and swimming in the outdoor pool, there's always a fun-filled cast party to celebrate the performance and cap off the week’s activities. Cast parties are complete with current music, group dances and contests with prizes. And each week the cast party is themed, such as monster mash, rock star day, Halloween dance, pajama party, dress as your favorite superhero, beach bash party and Theater Camp prom. It all adds up to a summer camp experience full of excitement and fun!
