WPAPC's long-running summer theatre camp, the Summer Theatre Academy, will kick off it's four-session series in June, and this summer's offering are worthy of a celebration. Along with sessions working on THE LION KING JR. and ALADDIN KIDS, among others, WPPAC will be one of the first theatres to present FROZEN JR., the one hour version of the hit Broadway show.
