PVTC's summer was jam-packed as we came back to campus for an all-new take on camp. We may have been outdoors, masked, and physically distanced, but we were IN PERSON and creating together!  Some students had the chance write & perform original plays and films in site-specific locations around camps for traveling audiences. Others joined Broadway Dreams and got to belt their hearts out with Broadway showtunes and learn original bits of iconic choreography. Our high school actors had the chance to enter the world of Dungeons and Dragons with PVTC's first-ever live-streamed production from Lane Family Hall, She Kills Monsters (Virtual Realms). Our youngest preschool artists acted out stories on an outdoor stage as they learned about body, voice, and imagination. When it was said and done, 102 students, 35 high school interns, and 26 staff members bustled around over the course of our eight weeks of camps. It was such a gift to be together!

PVTC summer camps inspire creativity, create connections, and spark lifelong passion for the arts.

Check back in January for information about our summer 2022 camp schedule.
