Taubenslag Productions Theater Camp
6/19/20 Update: THEATER CAMP WILL NOT BE OPENING THIS SUMMER 2020
Taubenslag Productions Theater Camp
Join us for summer 2020 - our 31st Season! Taubenslag Productions Theater Camp will run 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, use creativity & come alive on stage - giving them the life skills needed to succeed! Our motto is, “When you try you're best, you can do ANYTHING” - by the end of summer, our campers really see this come true!
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! Performances are held every Friday morning at 9:30 am & 11:00 am & are open to the public. All of our shows are original productions, many based on famous fairy tales and children's stories.
Each Friday afternoon there's even more fun and excitement with our cast party - complete with music, dances and contests. Cast parties are themed, such as “be a rock star”, Halloween dance, pajama party, “dress as a superhero”, beach bash party; we even have a Theater Camp prom!
Our Theater Camp is more than just theater! Afternoons are filled with tons of fun activities including water games, outdoor games, scavenger hunts, charades, relay races, sing down, carnival, Mardi Gras, theatrical workshops, dances and much much MORE! During our last week of the summer we divide campers into teams for our famous Color War competition!
Facilities and Staff
Theater Camp is directed by the award-winning Children's Theater Company, Taubenslag Productions & 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! And with our focus on always building self-esteem and confidence, our kids leave each summer feeling empowered! We are proud our camp is a welcoming place where all campers feel accepted and form life-lasting friendships – the majority of our campers return year after year – a testament to our successful programming and professional staff.
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 each session for parents, community members and all Theater Campers.
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.
