Summer Camps and More Come to The Maltz Jupiter

Summer Camps and More Come to The Maltz Jupiter

Where can you find characters from Dr. Seuss, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid, popular Disney favorites and large-scale kids' musicals under one roof?

At the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's popular Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts summer camp programs, of course!

With a flexible schedule, budding young performers will participate in a broad range of theatre-related activities, including acting, dancing, singing, prop-making, improvisation, storytelling and more. Many of the summer camps conclude with unique themed showcase performances.

The two largest camp shows will be performed on the Theatre's stage: the Senior Conservatory's In the Heights and the Junior Conservatory's You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The musicals will be performed complete with professional production values: sets, costumes, lights, a full orchestra and more. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.

"Our summer camp sessions have something for everyone, from dance, improv and musical theatre to comedy," said Julie Rowe, director of education for the Conservatory. "Our goal is to make sure that all of our students have fun, express their creativity, build confidence and have the opportunity to perform in a safe, supportive environment."

A great way to introduce children and teens to theatre, the Senior Conservatory will take place June 10 - 28 (with full performances of In the Heights on June 28 and 29), while the Junior Conservatory will take place July 8 - 26 (with full performances of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown on July 26 and 27).

Other summer camp options include a four-day level one dance intensive camp (June 3 - 6); a one-week Dr. Seuss-themed musical theatre camp for grades K-2 and a one-week Mary Poppins-themed camp for grades 3-5 (June 3-7); a three-day Disney-themed musical theatre camp for grades K-2 and a three-day comedy-themed camp for grades 3-5, as well as a three-day camp for Dance Company members in grades 6-12 (July 1-3); a two-week level two dance intensive camp for grades 6-12 (July 8 - 19); a two-week level three dance intensive camp for grades 6-12 (July 22 - August 2); and a one-week Under the Sea-themed camp for grades K-2 and a one-week Little Mermaid-themed camp for grades 3-5 (July 29 - August 2).
