As the school year winds down, the assignment for parents to find fun, fulfilling summer
activities for their children comes due. The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s popular
Summer Theatre Day Camp will provide young theatre fans with six entertaining, educational
one-week sessions starting June 15 and continuing through July 31.
Camp at Cincinnati’s Tony Award-winning theatre consists of one-week, full-day sessions
from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for children entering grades three through 12. For campers
entering grades one and two, Primary Creative Dramatics Camp is offered in six one-week,
half-day morning sessions from 9 a.m. to noon. In addition to the camp sessions, the
Playhouse offers before and after care for parents who need additional schedule flexibility.
Due to the popularity of last summer’s theatre fundamentals theme, all sessions this year
will introduce campers to a variety of theatre skills. Each session includes acting; additional
topics will range from Shakespeare, circus training and musical theatre to playmaking, stage
combat and improvisation. Classes and instructors will vary each session, so those interested
in participating in multiple camps will have a different experience each week.
All Playhouse camp classes are taught by the city’s best theatre professionals, who bring
years of experience and a strong focus in education to their students. The instructors are
trained to adjust the class to challenge all students’ skills and talents. All experience levels
