If you are looking for an unparalleled theater summer camp experience, American Players Theatre's A.C.T. (Acting for Classical Theater) Camp is the place for you. This one-week program brings together a motivated group of students to participate in a wide range of theater and camp activities.

During the week-long camp, you will:

  • Participate in workshops led by APT acting company members along with other APT artistic and camp staff. Workshops include text work, movement, voice, audition skills and team building.

  • Have a team building exercise on the Bethel Horizons high ropes course.

  • Attend four APT performances in 2017 followed by post show discussions as a camp group.
  • Work with staff directors daily as actors on a theater selection, to be performed on APT's Hill stage at the end of camp.

ACT Camp is designed for students age 13–18, we will accept 34 campers for this session.
