The P2K Youth Summer Musical Theater Camp is a four-week, fully immersive experience that will involve young people from 8 to 18 in all aspects of presenting a full-blown Broadway-style musical, with three performances on the big, Cailloux Theater stage.
A full slate of instructors under the leadership of our new Director of Youth Programs, Emily Olson, will prepare up to 30 young people with everything they need to put on a spectacular production.
Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in this year’s Summer Musical, Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It’s a “big bright beautiful world” as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
