Worcester Academy Musical Theater Camp is a performing arts program for boys and girls ages 7 to 14. The two-week session concludes with performances of two original one-act musicals- one for the older and one for the younger campers. We have 14 shows in our repertoire rotation and adapt them to the strengths of the current cast. Campers receive ample attention from expert faculty aided by counselors, developing skills in major elements of musical theater: acting, movement, and singing. Our approach gives campers experience in many aspects of the productions, letting them develop their strengths and explore new directions
