Learning through play in the arts is what Metro Theater Company (MTC) Summer Camps are all about. Whether it's playing with sculpture and song at Creative Arts Camp, or learning how to audition for a play at Summer At SLU, MTC's professional teaching artists bring fun and growth through the arts to campers of all ages. As one of St. Louis' oldest and most respected theater companies, MTC brings the best in arts and theater to all of our camps.
At Creative Arts Camp, held at New City School, children enjoy fun-filled days exploring drama, visual arts, creative movement and music with professional teaching artists. Creative discovery is what it's all about as the arts disciplines blend together. Campers might create a dance inspired by music they have composed or a sculpture inspired by an improvisation scene they have developed. Children share highlights of their week each Friday afternoon for family and friends.
At Summer At SLU Middle School Theatre, Advanced Middle School Theatre, and High School Theatre, students explore acting, audition techniques, playwriting, movement, stage combat, makeup, take theater tours, and more. Campers will create and perform original work, and perform scenes and monologues from published comedies and dramas. All skill levels are welcome. Campers swim weekly and lunch is provided daily. There will be a performance for family and friends at the conclusion of the program.
