Summer Teen Intensives

Pop Musicals

July 6 - 10, 9am-4pm


Pop Musicals are taking over! With contemporary musicals written by pop artists like  Billy Elliot, or the original pop-style scores like  Heathers or  Six, and now even more shows with music from pop albums like  Jagged Little Pill; there is so much to explore in the world of the pop musical!

This camp is for anyone who loves to sing and really rock it out. Industry-leading singing and dancing instructors will teach daily exercises and activities to build your skills as a vocalist and dancer. You will work as an ensemble on at least two pop-musical theatre numbers. Get ready to blow them away!

All levels welcome.

Scene Study

July 13 - 17, 9am-4pm


This camp is for anyone who loves to act and wants to “dig deep” into scene work. Students will learn how to break down text, find the character’s journey, and create basic blocking and rehearsal techniques to build a performance.

Take your acting to the next level. Some experience in acting recommended.

Collective Theatre Creation for Change

July 27 - 31, 9am-4pm


As announced, Neptune will be creating a new play "Climb It" to tour with our TourCo in 2021. This weeklong intensive will allow us to explore the themes of Climate Change, focus on finding your voice in this battle, navigate the highs and lows of being a teenager in these trying times, and to work with others to find words, movements, scenes and songs that may inform this production.

Be part of the first step in a new work. Perfect for those interested in theatre for social change or who strive to bring their own voice to  theatre creation. All levels welcome.

It's Called a PLAY!

(Just a sense of play.)

Film 101

Musical Theatre Ensemble

August 10 - 14, 9am-4pm


This will be one of the most exciting camps of the summer as instructors take songs from some of the most popular shows on Broadway and create a small montage of numbers for you to perform.  Sing, dance and act all while having fun (and maybe catch a glimpse of the action on the Neptune Stage)! Challenge yourself as a true triple threat while working with others to build a strong Musical Theatre Ensemble.

If Broadway calls this is the camp for you. All levels welcome.
