Theater Camp for Kids in North Brunswick, New Jersey

Our 31st season of THEATER CAMP is opening this summer 2021. Our Theater Campers will still be performing our original fun-filled musical comedies each week as we’ve been doing for 30 years. However, due to Covid-19, we will not perform to a live audience this summer. Each Friday will continue to be “show day” and Edison TV will be coming in to film our productions to broadcast on TV. Links will also be posted for viewing the shows on our YouTube channel. Obviously, all Covid-19 guidelines will also be observed. Frequent hand washing, hand sanitizing, mask wearing and social distancing in groups. Upon daily arrival, all staff and campers will have their temperatures checked.

Many parents have reached out to me this year worried about their children’s mental health. There is concern that children may be feeling lonely and depressed. My main goal this summer will be lifting our campers’ spirits, and as always, building their self-esteem. Our campers feel a sense of camaraderie at Theater Camp. They root for each other to succeed. This summer might possibly be the most important summer of their lives. I take my responsibility in keeping children safe & happy very seriously and plan to give our kids a much-needed joyous summer – one they’ll never forget!!

Award-Winning Theater Camp Perfect for All Kids!


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!
