About This Event

Ages 13-18, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

No experience is necessary. All are welcome!

Technical Theatre Camp offers an incredible opportunity for students 12 and up to gain training, insight, respect for, and hands-on experience in technical theatre from Springfield Little Theatre’s own Scenic, Lighting, Sound, and Costume Designers, and the Summer Youth Programs support staff. Students enrolled in Technical Theatre Camp will not only gain a valuable skill set, but they will also help to create the sets, costumes, and props, as well as serve as the technical crew, for a Springfield Little Theatre Summer Institute production.

Technical Theatre Camp students will split their time between The Landers Theatre, home to Springfield Little Theatre, and The Creamery Arts Center, home to Springfield Little Theatre's Scenic and Costume Design Shops. Students will be dropped off and picked up at The Landers Theatre each day.


When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

Performances Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5 at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:30 PM
