Playbill’d Summer (Ages 5-11)
In Playbill’d Summer, a special offering in partnership with Greenwich House Music School, campers build a play in just two weeks! What is the story about? Who will play which part? That will be up to the young people who join our camp! Led by professional teaching artists, this half-day camp focuses on giving young people the tools and power to create theater of their own design.
July 18th – 29th, 12:30PM-4:30PM
Two-week Theater Intensive with Performance on July 29th.
$200 materials and costume fee for STEAM Campers (please register for Playbill’d as an “additional service” when signing up for Week 3 of STEAM Camp to get this price).

STEAM Campers will spend the morning at YCC in their usual activities. After lunch they will be taken to Greenwich House Music School for classes and rehearsals in our recital hall and studios.
Sign up for this performance intensive that runs ONLY July 18th -29th!
Playbill’d Summer is a special program based on our theater classes offered throughout the school year. Greenwich House Music School is committed to high quality theater education that nurtures young performers to grow as artists and people.
*Playbill’d Summer is a great introduction to our theater and acting classes.*
What to Expect:
Campers 5-7 years old will explore characters and stories using imaginative play and teacher-led improvisation. They will learn how to use their bodies and voices to create animals, fairytale creatures and characters. They will explore music through song and dance to create a world and story of their own.
Campers 8-11 years old will learn the building blocks of theater and performance through games and practice building scenes. They will learn the elements of plot and how to cooperate in play building. They will learn performance skills that give them the confidence they need to perform in this play, and beyond.
Skills campers will learn:
Improv, storytelling, courage and responsibility, critical thinking, stage presence, self-expression, focus, giving and receiving feedback. Collaboration, compromise and joy are the center of this program and we welcome all children.
