My student turns 5 in July, can they still register?
Unfortunately, No. Students must be the minimum camp age as of the first day of camp to participate.
Can I attend morning camp in week 1 and production camp in week 2?
No. Morning camp is a totally separate experience and will not be rehearsing the material for production camp.
Does the morning camp perform Descendants?
No. Morning camp is a learning experience for our younger actors to prepare them for skills needed in future performances. However, these students do have a performance showcase at the end of the first week of camp!
How much is camp?
The Morning Camp for ages 5-12 is $115 (which includes a t-shirt). The Production camp for ages 9-19 is $165 (which includes a t-shirt).
What are your safety protocols for Morning Camp?
For the safety of our staff and students, and to stay in line with AEA recommendations for a COVID-safe acting workplace, all young actors will wear masks for all rehearsals and the performance inside the theatre. However, we do not require proof of vaccination for morning camp students.
What are your safety protocols for Main Camp?
Because the Main Camp present a full scale production on stage at MLT, all actors must follow the same safety rules we use for our adult productions. Masks will be worn at all rehearsals inside the building, and all actors must show proof of an FDA approved COVID vaccination at time of registration. These safety guidelines are in line with AEA recommendations for a COVID-safe acting workplace.
