Metro Theater Company

Learning through play in the arts is what Metro Theater Company (MTC) Summer Camps are all about! MTC's young artists are taught by dynamic professional teaching artists who actively work in the St. Louis arts community.

Students will explore acting and audition techniques, playwriting, stage combat, and more at any of our three Grand Theater Camp programs. Grand Theater Camp: Middle School runs from June 3-14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Grand Theater Camp:Advanced Middle School runs from June 17-28, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Grand Theater Camp: High School runs from July 8-12, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Campers swim weekly and lunch will be provided daily by SLU dining. There will be a performance at the conclusion of each program. Grand Theater Camp takes place at Saint Louis University.

Younger artists enjoy fun filled days at Creative Arts Camp. There are two, one-week sessions, and campers can attend one week, or both! Dates are July 29 - August 2 and August 5-9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Creative discovery is what it's all about as we blend drama, visual art, creative movement, and music together. Children share highlights of their week each Friday afternoon with family and friends. Creative Arts Camp takes place at New City School.
