Vacation Camps and More Announced at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts

Where can you find characters from Scooby Doo, Monsters, Inc., SpongeBob SquarePants and large-scale kids' musicals under one roof?

At the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's popular Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts 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 Sister Act and the Junior Conservatory's The Wizard of Oz, Young Performers' Edition. 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 vacation camps 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."
