Mission Statement

Theatre Aurora's Youth Program is dedicated to providing the highest quality of theatrical training to young people in a fun, inclusive, and nurturing environment. Taught by drama educators in the performing arts community, our innovative curriculum aims to enrich today’s youth by providing them with creative opportunities that aid in the development of self-awareness, critical thinking, team building, and personal growth.

Campers will explore:

  • A variety of drama games

  • Comedy

  • Method Acting

  • Character Development

  • Improvisation

  • Playwriting

  • Behind the Curtain (Production team)

 

Performance/Showcase:

Every afternoon, with the assistance of their instructors, the campers will work on writing and directing a play from scratch, using the techniques they have been learning in their AM programs to perform on the final day of camp - either during the day or in the evening for family & friends.
