This summer, encourage your child to try something they’ve never tried before, or follow their passion and grow in their craft at Springfield’s leading non-profit community theatre and youth arts education institution!
SLT offers multiple one-day, one-week and two-week workshops during the months of May through August serving beginning to advanced students ages four to 18. Their passionate staff is proud to provide enriching, entertaining, and exciting summer theatre camp experiences in acting, musical theatre, dance, performance, technical theatre or theatre administration for every child who participates.
Youth involvement at Springfield Little Theatre encourages a love, appreciation, and respect for community, the arts, and all aspects of theatricality. It promotes enthusiasm, discipline, inclusion, creativity, and putting forth your best effort, while offering joy in accomplishment and providing an outlet for friendship and fun!
2023 workshops feature popular themes such as Harry Potter, Encanto, and American Pop Superstars; Broadway Kids productions of Sleeping Beauty, Seussical, and The Lion King in The Reynolds Auditorium at The Judy; and Broadway Junior productions of Mean Girls and Newsies at the historic Landers Theatre. Playful exploration, hooking into youthful interests such as Legos, Animal Crossing, Squishmallows, Stranger Things, Bluey, Minions, Superheroes, Paw Patrol and more is available through enrollment in Friday Fun Days, which also include character visits. Pre-professional master classes are offered periodically.
At the conclusion of the summer season, participating families are invited back for the SLT Education Department’s Big Summer Blowout, a culminating celebration of all of the workshops and open house showcasing fall opportunities.
Program spots are limited. A detailed listing of offerings, descriptions, and registration information can be found at SpringfieldLittleTheatre.org/summer-youth-programs.
