Act, sing, and dance the week away at our high-energy full-day camps! You’ll learn and grow your performance skills as you work to put together an actual show in a week.
We have two different full-day camp options. The Kids Camps for ages 7-12 are a great place to start. Campers will learn a 30-minute adaptation of a show in just a week. These camps will take place throughout the summer!
For those students in an older age-range looking for a little bit more of a challenge, we offer one week of Curtain Up camp for ages 10-14, which will explore a 60-minute adaptation in just a week!
Campers will have the OPTIONAL opportunity to audition for roles on the first day of camp. For campers who want to audition for a role, abbreviated music and script excerpts (“sides”) will be provided by email for campers to prepare for their auditions and callbacks. You do not have to audition in order to be in this camp; all campers will have the chance to act, sing, and dance in these fun, upbeat shows! Please note: Auditions and callbacks will be closed.
Full-day camps meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at locations all over the metro including Overland Park, Lee’s Summit, Lenexa, Gladstone, and more! The show will be performed at 4 p.m. on Friday at the same location as the camp.

Anna, Middle Anna, Young Anna – The younger Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Filled with a tremendous amount of light, energy, and love, Anna is a hopelessly optimistic extrovert at all ages, but longs for connection with others, especially her sister, Elsa. Each version of this warm and determined princess requires a strong singer with great comic timing.
Elsa, Middle Elsa, Young Elsa – The elder Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Next in line for the throne, Elsa has been born with magical powers that can overwhelm her when she becomes afraid and harm others if not handled with care. Fearful of hurting anyone, Elsa becomes anxious and withdrawn before eventually learning to take control of, and become confident in, her powers which she masterfully uses to manipulate the Snow Chorus.
Hans – The ambitious Prince of the Southern Isles and overlooked thirteenth son of a king. He boasts an exceedingly charming facade that fools everyone – including Anna and, ideally, the audience! – into believing he’s Prince Charming, when really, he’s just a jerk.
Kristoff – A hardworking ice harvester with a sarcastic veneer and a rough-around-the-edges exterior that hides a big heart. Taken in by the Hidden Folk when he was young, he loves Pabbie and Bulda dearly, but is a bit of a loner – until he meets Anna.
Olaf – A magical snowman created by Anna and Elsa when they were young and is endearingly delighted by everything – especially the idea of summer. Goofy and sweet, Olaf should possess a childlike innocence and excellent comic timing.
Sven – Kristoff’s loyal best friend and a reindeer of few words. Look for a performer with terrific physical acting skills who can devise a strong movement vocabulary to bring this furry charmer to life.
King Agnarr – The warm-hearted ruler of Arendelle. He is committed to protecting both his family and his townspeople from his eldest daughter’s powers.
Queen Iduna- Possesses a sense of rightness and kindness that guides her in her protection of her two young girls. Born with her own powers, this queen has the ability to communicate with the Hidden Folk of the mountains and so understands Elsa more deeply.
Bishop – Officiates the coronation and crowns Elsa. This spiritual supervisor must communicate to the townspeople of Arendelle in a serious and formal manner.
Weselton – An overbearing visiting duke who possesses a huge inferiority complex.
Pabbie & Bulda – The open and warm- hearted mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk. Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what’s best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts.
Ensemble – Roles include: Storytellers, Townspeople, Snow Chorus, Castle Staff, Housekeeper, Butler, Handmaiden, Cook, Steward, Guard, Summer Chorus
The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder, in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.
Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory — or suffer the consequences. (Courtesy of Music Theatre International)

Charlie Bucket – The role of Charlie Bucket is the emotional heart and soul of the musical.

Mike Teavee – Addicted to video games, the Internet and any other mindnumbing technological device. Mike is bratty, loud and obnoxious. He does not know the word “no.”
Ms. Teavee – A take on all television moms of the distant past. Think June Cleaver (Leave it to Beaver) or Marion Cunningham (Happy Days) or Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch). She’s perfectly put together and a bit vacant.
Violet Beauregarde – Gum chewer extraordinaire, Violet hails from Snellville, Georgia.
Mrs. Beauregarde – A teacher of geography and has invested a great deal of hard-earned money on therapy for her orally fixated daughter, with less than stellar results.
Veruca Salt – The wealthy, class-conscious, spoiled brat.
Mr. Salt – Mr. Salt’s solution to most problems is to buy his way out.
Grandma Josephina, Grandma Georgina, & Grandpa George – Charlie’s other three grandparents.

The Emmy Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series and pop culture phenomenon is now the basis for one of the most fun musicals ever to hit the stage, Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR.
The musical follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans vividly to life. (Courtesy of Musical Theatre International)
