Acting Sampler Week
This one week acting camp is designed to introduce the new camper to Traveling Players. Explore acting and outdoor skills in a fun, relaxed environment. Dive into classes in improv, acting, and physical theatre, and then perform for friends and family!
For current 3rd – 5th graders.
- Acting Sampler A: June 22 – 26 (one week)
- Acting Sampler B: July 20 – 24 (one week)
- Acting Sampler C: August 10 – 14 (one week)
The campers will sample a variety of theatre activities, including improvisation, acting classes, physical theatre (stage combat and mask theatre), outdoor skills, puppetry, and introductions to two of the world’s greatest playwrights: Shakespeare and Molière. Not new to acting? Our programs are customizable to the kids enrolled each week, allowing us to stretch our eager performers.
By focusing on classical theatre, Traveling Players trains performers who are bold, resourceful, and skilled. A summer at Traveling Players trains you to act not just anything, but anywhere. All the world’s a stage!
Each day brings new theatre games and new acting skills! This one-week program has a little bit of everything: improvisation, acting, Shakespeare, stage combat, mask, and outdoor fun! A fun place to make new friends and create imaginative adventures together!
A normal camp day starts with fun and games on the purple bus. Campers take daily classes in improvisation, acting, physical theatre, stage combat, puppetry, and mask performance. They also get time to rehearse for their showcase.
While the rest of camp has their weekly overnight, the samplers put on thier showcase! Campers arrive by bus as normal and have a typical day until 4pm. Then instead of going home they will begin to get ready for their performance. Parents can join us at 5:30 for an informal showing of the weeks work. At 6pm we’ll have a cast party around the campfire and parents can take their campers home by 6:30pm. Please note, that because the rest of camp is on an overnight there will not be bus service the following morning.

I did not need to wake her up in the mornings for the camp. Since the first day, she woke herself up and get ready for the camp by herself.
