Theatre Arts Academy

Summer Camp 2024


THE MISSION of the Theatre Arts Academy at the Lincoln Community Playhouse is to provide production-based theatre education opportunities for children ages 9-13 to grow and develop as performers. Therefore, each child who signs up for the class will participate as a performer in the production.

Auditions take place at the end of the first day of class in order to assign roles, but every child who signs up for the class will be cast in the show in a performance capacity, whether that is a solo singing/speaking role or member of the chorus. Any student with an interest in theatre is eligible for this program. We find that the varying degrees of talent is a plus for everyone involved, since much of our process is built on teaching the tools they need for a successful production.

The academies are set up so that the participants receive instruction in acting, movement, singing, and other forms appropriate for the show that has been selected. Participants rehearse with the director, music director, and choreographer.

SCHOLARSHIPS are available and awarded to qualifying students. Scholarship applications are due three weeks prior to the applied camp. You can download the form at the link below. For more information, please email
