Olney Theatre Center Summer STOCK

Olney Theatre Center Summer STOCK is a one-of-a-kind theatre arts program for students in grades 4-6 (rising). Students will work with Olney Theatre artists daily, taking classes in acting, singing, dance, and playwriting. At the end of the two-week session, students will perform their music, choreographed dances, and original short plays to be shared with their families upon completion of the camp.

Olney Theatre Center Musical Theatre Intensive

Olney Theatre Center Musical Theatre Intensive is for students in grades 7-9 (rising). Working with Olney's best musical theatre performers and teachers, Musical Theatre Intensive students will hone their individual singing, dancing, and acting skills, while crafting a unique musical theatre review that showcases their growth and skills.
