The Middle School Ensemble performs comedies that embrace the true spirit of the wandering entertainer.

This summer, perform in Sganarelle or The Bourgeois Gentleman, two comedies by Molière. They have a little of everything: headstrong husbands, sensible wives, jealous lovers, crafty valets, arguing scholars, sassy servants, dancing weirdos, sword fights, disguises, drama, and loads of slapstick comedy.

 full of colorful characters, lightning wit, and slapstick physical humor – and then takes it on tour to perform for area camps, libraries, and children’s hospitals, ending with a big festival for friends and family.

Register for both sessions to perform in both shows!

Take the show on tour!

In the last week of your session, you’ll be piling into a purple bus with your props, set, costumes, and staff (don’t leave them behind!) and taking your show to perform for area camps, libraries, and children’s hospitals, ending with a big festival for friends and family.

This tour is designed to introduce young actors to the fun and challenges of taking your show on the road, without going too far away from home.

Traveling Players summer camps and classes always offer expert training in acting, character creation, physical comedy, stage combat, improvisation, and text analysis. A typical day at camp isn’t just about rehearsal! Our talented faculty teach daily classes in subjects that help round out the campers as actors and as students.  

We also value the spirit of the ensemble. Our ensemble- and team-building adventures create a strong, supportive cast and friendships that will last a lifetime. We teach leave no trace camping, go on ropes courses, and camp out every Thursday night.

I honestly feel I learned more about acting from one summer with Traveling Players than from my performing arts middle school years.
