Not many people have put together a musical production in just three weeks—much less during COVID—but for hundreds of kids in San Francisco in the Summer of 2020, it was a mighty fun experience! In pods of 14, like-aged campers perform an original Kid Stock play, and our instructors help campers big and small bring the story to life through workshops in song, dance, drama, and art. Kid Stock programs allow the space for campers to express themselves, make new friends, and learn the ins-and-outs of musical theater all while adhering to all health and safety recommendations. At the end of the three weeks, each pod brings their show to the “stage,” complete with set pieces, costumes, props, sound and lighting to create a video performance for families to enjoy for years to come!
There are no small parts, only small actors, and that’s why every camper in our programs gets a part in the show. Our camp directors identify the unique performance needs of each camper and determine a role that will help them make big leaps in self-expression and confidence.
COMING SOON: TeenScene by Kid Stock
Kid Stock Theater Camps now offer performance opportunities for teens! TeenScene is a new program specifically designed for young people that wish to keep the Kid Stock summer magic alive in a more mature and challenging environment. With workshops in script writing, set design, and stage make-up to name a few, the program provides a more comprehensive musical theater experience than ever before! Aside from theater skills, teens will gain valuable life skills in communication, problem solving, collaboration and leadership to prepare them for higher education and any future endeavor!
Comprising professional performers, theatre graduates, former campers, our year-round teaching artists, and more, our summer staff offers the best of the best for our campers. Want to join the team? Find out if there are open positions at a camp near you!
Summer Stock Theater Camps are three week day camps that teach the basics of musical theater. Ranging from drama games, karaoke sessions, craft projects, dance breaks, meditation moments, and show run throughs, daily activities at camp are all kinds of fun.
Because kids of all ages attend together, campers are split up by age into their own pods – family groups. Each family group comes up with a name, and their team sticks together for all workshops and activities.
Mornings start with ice breaker games and warm ups, followed by a quick snack break and pre-lunch rehearsal workshops. Following an hour of lunch and recess, quiet time gives campers a chance to decompress and relax before jumping right back in to the final segment of rehearsal.
By the end of camp, it’s time to perform! On the few days of camp, the cast performs their show, complete with lights, sound, camera and plenty of action! The video performances are then edited and sent home via email for the entire family to enjoy!
