Taubenslag Productions Theater Camp

Taubenslag Productions Theater Camp runs for 8 weeks this summer for kids entering 1st grade up to 16 years old. Whether they want to perform, create sets or props or be a counselor-in-training, we've got something for everyone. Campers can learn about all aspects of musical theater while also building confidence and self-esteem – all levels of experience or no experience at all are welcome! Theater Camp teaches kids how to use performance & theater arts to break out of their shells and come alive on stage - giving them the life skills needed to succeed! Our motto is, “When you try your best, you can do ANYTHING” - by the end of summer, our campers really see this come true!

BIG news for summer 2023 - Our annual trip to Broadway is back! All Full-Day Campers in Session 3 will be going to NYC to see Back to the Future starring Tony Award winner, NJ native and former Taubenslag Productions’ Actor Roger Bart! Roger will also be doing a talk-back after the show exclusively for our Theater Camp!

Show Productions

During the first 6 weeks, campers will produce an elaborate musical production EACH WEEK. Weeks 7 & 8 are reserved for the annual “Broadway Spectacular”. Roles are provided for ALL CAMPERS. That's 7 shows in 8 weeks, giving all kids a chance to shine on stage! 

This summer we are also bringing back two shows performed on Friday mornings in front of a live audience at 9:30 AND 11 am. Our show schedule includes: The Brave Little Tailors of Transylvania, The Variety Show, Jack & Jill and the Beanstalk, Pocahontas, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Hercules, two Teen Scene productions, and The Broadway Spectacular!

Performances take place under our colorful, fully air-conditioned Big Top Performance Tent! All shows are open to the public, tickets available on show days.

Our Theater Camp is located at the Edison Elks, 375 Old Post Road. We are no longer affiliated with Middlesex County College.

Theater Plus Swimming & Fun Activities

And our Theater Camp is more than just theater! Afternoons are filled with tons of fun activities including swimming every day, scavenger hunts, relay races, sing down, volleyball, foursquare, ping pong, carnival, improv, workshops, and much, much MORE!  During the last week of summer we divide campers into teams for our famous Color War competition!

Each Friday afternoon there's also a cast party - complete with music, dances and contests. Cast parties are themed, such as “be a rock star”, pajama party, “dress as a superhero”, beach bash party; we even have a Theater Camp prom to close out the summer!

Teen Programs

Theater Camp also offers special TEEN programs; Tech, Teen Scenes and Counselor-in-Training.  “Tech” is for campers 12 to 14 years old where they function as the stage crew; painting scenery, organizing props & costumes. During performances, Tech campers function as the stage crew, making sure that sets, scenery, props and costumes are in place. “Teen Scenes” is for 8th, 9th & 10th graders where they have the opportunity to learn more advanced theater and acting techniques and prepare a special teen production consisting of monologues, scenes, songs or a complete drama, comedy or musical that features all teens who want to participate. Teen Scenes is performed in Sessions 1 & 2.

Our Counselors-in-Training (CIT) program is also very popular with Teens. Our CITs shadow counselors throughout the day and are responsible for a variety of tasks such as directing a song or scene, choreographing a dance number and distributing literature. CIT's are also encouraged to participate in Teen Scenes. CITs admission is by application only – see our website for details.

Theater Camp was honored by the NJ State Senate, General Assembly and Middlesex County Freeholders for artistic excellence and our 25+ years of serving kids in Middlesex County.

Our Staff and Camp Vibe

Our award-winningTheater Camp is supervised by a professional staff with combined experience of over 30 years in education & children's theater so you can be sure your child is cared for with an experienced and dedicated staff. Most of our camp counselors were campers themselves; many have grown up in the program and had so much fun they didn't want to leave!  We are proud our camp is a welcoming place where all campers feel accepted and form life-lasting friendships with the majority of our campers returning year after year! We have received hundreds of heart-warming thank you letters from satisfied parents & campers - check out our website to read some of their success stories.
