Due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19, we are holding our June camps online. If you want to know what an online theatre camp might look like, click here!
We are planning on having a Musical Theatre Performance camp in July. As of now, that plan is still in place. However, we are only accepting "Pre-Registrations." This allows you to reserve a spot without any cost, so you can be first informed if the situation changes. By not accepting payment for the July camp, we are giving your family time to make a decision, as well as providing us a way to be flexible if needed.
High School Acting
June 8-12 for Rising 9th-12th Graders
Take your acting ability to the next level with this advanced summer acting intensive for high school students. Through scene and monologue work, you can expect to learn more about character development, objectives and obstacles, connecting to text, and bringing emotional life to your work.
Middle School Acting
June 15-19 for Rising 6th-8th Graders
We'll be exploring scene and monologue work in this week long summer camp. You'll learn about effective memorization techniques, understand how blocking works, get valuable stage time, and build a solid foundation for your acting skills for the upcoming school year.
July 6-17 (2 Weeks), for Rising 4th-8th Graders
Come join us on stage as we mount a musical in 2 weeks! You'll get a chance to be on stage while singing, acting, and dancing. We'll start with auditions on the first day, and by the end we'll perform for your family and friends! This is a perfect camp for the experienced and beginner performer alike- students will all participate in the production and take away valuable skills that can be used on stage and off.
Please note, this camp will have 2 performances outside of regular camp hours: Friday July 17th at 4:00pm & Saturday, July 18th at 2:00pm.

Virtual Summer Camp?
Here's the thing. This is uncharted territory for all of us. We still want to give your young person a chance to bond with other theatre people while learning more about acting.
We're not going to let the pandemic stop us from that! But, we have to be cautious. In order to try to make everyone comfortable, we've decided to go for it! As they say "creativity thrives on restrictions."
At Flying Anvil, we create adventurous theatre that connects audiences with new ideas. So, we're going to explore this space together, and we hope you join us!
