Step Into the Story.

Our summer 2023 productions will focus on how to BE. From setting aside time to daily mindfulness to being fully present in our creativity, we will practice what it means to be human BEings. Our goal is that all campers, interns, and staff members can be the truest versions of themselves onstage and off. We will also think about how we are part of a larger community. It’s a theme with so many possibilities as long as we all commit to being in the here and now. Come BE with us!
