Kids create

Every child gets a chance to direct, choreograph, create a costume and props, become a sound and light technician. In short, we promise a rich, rewarding experience for all. But register early. Space in our camps goes fast!

Lyudmila Schaible Children’s Theater

If you only enroll your child in one summer camp this year, make it this one! 

We gather a group of children and inspire them to write their own play. They cast it, rehearse, make their set, props and costumes out of "found objects." It is truly an engaging, imaginative experience. The end result looks like the kids put on a play in the backyard...under the brilliant direction of a team of theatre professionals! 

Every child receives a meaningful, colorful part. In most cases, every young actor is onstage the entire time. 

We include every child who wants to participate and each young actor plays a colorful, meaningful part. We believe that children are natural actors and that each child has something valuable to share. Students may also choose to be costumers, assistant directors, or prop masters. 

In addition to rehearsing the play, the workshop experience includes lots of time to learn about theatre, to form friendships with the other cast members, and to develop the skills required of actors. This camp also gives parents and family members the opportunity to have fun together. Parents, siblings and friends can help the young actor learn lines, make a costume, or work on a set piece.
