Calling all young theatre lovers! The Sugar Creek Players are proud to offer a two week musical theatre camp in June 2024, directed by Jennifer Peacock and Mike Melvin. Campers will cultivate their singing, acting, and dancing skills as they learn Music Man Jr., a delightful show that features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with joy, warmth, and lots of laughs! The camp will culminate in two final performances on the Vanity Theatre stage.

When not rehearsing, the campers will take exciting age-appropriate classes in acting, improvisation, music, theatrical design, and more. Campers will also have a blast with theatre games and imagination activities to round out a full day of creativity, self discovery, and fun!
