Located on the banks of Lake Champlain, just a few miles away from Burlington, Vermont, Brown Ledge Camp is a residential, sleep-away camp for girls ages 10-17. For over ninety years, Brown Ledge has created a place where girls can find their passion through our Freedom Program and the choice of 18 different activities.
One of the strongest and most popular departments at Brown Ledge is Theatre Arts. Three one-act plays are cast at the beginning of almost every week and produced that Saturday night. The excitement is high as all in camp eagerly look forward to attending each performance. In addition to one-acts, the eight week season features a well-known three-act play in late July, a Stock Company performance, and a Broadway musical the last week of camp.
Brown Ledge offers a theatre facility with seating for over 250 audience members, complete with proscenium stage and arena. Our theatre is equipped with a make-up room, a complete lighting both and two separate buildings that house our costumes and props, respectively.
Brown Ledge recognizes that all involved in producing a play “actors and those off-stage” play important roles. Every girl in camp is welcome to try out for a variety of roles each week. As interest is so high, acting parts cannot be guaranteed, yet there is a place for all interested campers each week. Campers may participate in acting classes and in stage managing, lighting, directing, costuming, and set construction, or plays.
