    If you love theatre and want to continue (or start!) your involvement in the performing arts this summer, we want to recommend The Summer Theatre Camp of Montclair, NJ! A Midsummer’s Dreaming Theatre Company’s summer camp, The Summer Theatre Copmany of Montclair is offering programs for young people ages 5-18. Campers will be introduced to all aspects of the performing arts including acting, singing, dancing,improvisation, and rehearsal. Each program will suit various ages and levels in a high caliber and peronalized setting,allowing for the development of campers’ confidence, creativity, and communication skills. Upon enrollement, each child is entered to win a free ticket to the Broadway production of Wicked. (this may only as part of our MAY ACTING CAMP SPECIAL!)
    Working with young performing artists for more than 22 years, all instructors are certified, mature, and experienced trained people who have worked within the summer project for years. Programs for younger campers offer free Before and AfterCare suited for parents who want their children to have a summer full of fun, friends, and appropriate challenges designed to build skill and confidence all happening in a safe and beautiful environment.
    We hope this will help some to find the acting camps they are looking for this summer
