Olney Theatre Center Summer STOCK
Olney Theatre Center Summer STOCK is a one-of-a-kind theater arts program for students in grades 4-6 (rising). Students will work with OTC theater artists daily, taking classes in Acting & Improvisation, Voice & Singing, Dance & Movement, and Scene Creation. At the end of the two-week session, students will live stream a final performance of their music, dance, and writing pieces to be shared with their parents 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. At the end of the two-week session, students will record a final performance of their music, dance, and writing pieces to be shared with their parents upon completion of the camp. Education staff will edit the video and provide a private link for participants’ families.
