 Music Theatre Philly Summer Camps 2023 

21st and Chestnut Street
First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia

Rising 1st – 8th Graders

Monday-Friday / 9am – 3pm
$450/week
*Extended care option available

New for 2023!

Campers at the 21st and Chestnut Street location will experience the entire process of putting on a show. You can sign your child up for either a one week “Musical Revue” session or a two week “Mini Musical” session.

 

During a one-week Musical Revue session, campers will practice songs, dances, and short scenes based on the camp theme. They will rehearse each day with their professional teaching artists and will present their show live on stage on the last day of the session.

 

During a two-week Mini Musical session, campers will experience the entire process of bringing a script to life on stage: from auditions and rehearsals to designing their own sets and costumes. In two weeks, the campers will put on an entire musical that will be presented on the last Friday of the two-week session.

 

The performances for all of our sessions will be held inside the First Unitarian Church and all families and friends are invited to come watch!
