Chicago Children's Theatre Opens Registration For Spring Break Camp, Spring Classes and 2021 Summer Camps

Parents, fire up that laptop and direct your browser to chicagochildrenstheatre.org/camps, because it's open enrollment for Spring Break Camp, Spring Classes and a full summer of Summer Camps at Chicago Children's Theatre.

Spring Break Camp dates are March 29-April 2, which coincide with CPS Spring Break. This camp is set to be a one-week, in-person, physically distanced experience for kids K-5, Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with free before and after care. The camp's theme, It's A Jungle Out There, will playfully explore what life might look and feel like post pandemic with new and familiar routines.

i??Starting April 5, CCT kicks off its new Spring education session with a wide variety of classes that meet weekly through early June.

Most Spring classes will be live on Zoom, like Kid Talk for grades 3-5, in which students learn to make their own courageous versions of TED Talk videos, Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m., and Global Artists for Sustainability, an online international class for ages 9-12 to create a theater piece around UN goals for sustainability, co-led by CCT and Mumbai's The Pomengrate Workshop, Saturdays at 8 a.m.

Two Spring classes - Playmakers Ensemble for grades K-2 and Movie Makers for grades 3-5 - will be held on-site at CCT if conditions allow. To learn more and register, visit chicagochildrenstheatre.org/classes.
