Stage Door Conservatory will offer four popular summer camps (Kids on Stage, On Broadway, Teens on Stage and Backstage) in musical theater and the performing arts to children in the 2nd through 12th grade this coming summer. Our programs begin June 24 and end August 16 and are offered in two to six week increments.
Stage Door Conservatory’s programs provide an enriched, supportive and often profoundly memorable experience for children interested in developing and expressing themselves as young actors and theater artists and are based in North Berkeley at 1953 Hopkins Street. Each session focuses on the creation and performance of a play, including two full-length Broadway productions for our older participants. This year, On Broadway (grades 5 - 9) will present Fiddler on the Roof and Teens on Stage (grades 8 - 12) will present Legally Blonde while Kids on Stage (grades 3 - 5) will perform plays from beloved childrne's author, Roald Dahl, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr, Fox and James and the Giant Peach.
Suitable for both children new to theater and experienced actors, our camps offer an inspirational opportunity to learn the arts of acting, singing, dancing, costuming and stage and set design, as well as to become part of a supportive, engaging creative community.
Sessions are 2 - 6 weeks and are overseen by professional theater educators with strong commitments to children including notable East Bay director (and the East Bay Express “Teacher of the Year” for four consecutive years) Russell Wright.
Children love their experiences at Stage Door Conservatory -- not only for the training and performance opportunities we provide, but our emphasis on creating a supportive, nurturing and deeply engaging atmosphere for learning.
Sessions are $325/week, plus a $50 - $100 registration fee. This year, Stage Door Conservatory will commit 10% of its income to providing financial aid/tuition assistant to low-income families.
Our camp day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. and we offer pre-care and after-care.
