ABOUT “Homemade: A Show We Made Ourselves” 

What is home? Is it the place we live? The people we’re with? A feeling of belonging? Homes can be so many things: from mansions to tree forts, apartments to shelters, castles to campgrounds. Home means something different to each of us.

In this two-week camp, students will go through the exhilarating process of creating a brand-new world premiere show! Together, we will discover vibrant characters through improvisation, interviews, and imagination. We will share our final pieces with our audience in our beloved redwood grove on the final day of camp.


Our goal is for the final performance to take place in person, with masked audiences outdoors. There will also be "streaming" options to watch the performances at home. Ticket info and specifics to come.


Rehearsal, acting class, devising/writing, costumes, props, hair, makeup, inclusivity in theatre discussions.


We want to see what each actor brings to the table! Our team of directors and designers will use your video submission to craft the world of Homemade: A Show We Made with the goal of offering a fun and challenging program specifically for the group of students who sign up. Each actor is asked to submit a video that includes:

  • An introduction: Tell us your name & age

  • A poem or monologue (1 minute or less): We prefer this to be a memorized piece. We encourage you to make vocal and physical choices to show off a character. Have fun with it!

  • 30-60 seconds of you doing something that makes you feel at home. Don’t feel like you need to “perform” for this portion of the audition. We want to see you in your natural habitat. Whether curling up to read a book, mixing ingredients for your favorite cake, or showing off some soccer skills, we want to see what feeling at home looks like to you!

*Weekly Charitable Contribution Request -Support Teaching Artists & Scholarship Students:

We request families who are able to contribute an additional $200/week per camper.

Tuition does not cover all camp-related expenses. These valuable tax-deductible donations allow PVTC to offer a livable wage to the teaching artists who pour their energy and passion into campers. Returning families will know the importance of the connection between PVTC staff members and students/interns who form positive lasting relationships through the years. Teaching artists are committed to developing artists and individuals and give extra care to each student to inspire and guide them. They are the heart of PVTC. Help us support these artists in the incredible work they do.


Further, PVTC is committed to offering programming to all students regardless of financial need. Tax-deductible contributions ensure we can keep theatre accessible.
