Camp Info & FAQs




Center Stage Drama Camps
are adventures for actors. Campers will learn theater techniques, voice skills, and rehearse for the full-length musical they will perform at the end of camp! On the first day of camp we will hold auditions (that require little to no preparation) to cast the show. Every day following, we will rehearse the show and perform it for the community on the last day of camp.

All camps are held from 9 AM to 3 PM at:
Riverside Arts Center
76 N. Huron Street, (map)
Ypsilanti, MI 48197

1. What do the campers do all day?
Each day is packed with games, songs, rehearsing, and more fun than humans should be allowed to have!

Bring money for a weekly trip to a nearby store for ice cream which is also on the schedule!

    How do you get tickets if child is not signed up for the camp but you just want to see the show?

    • csptheatre0615 says:

      Thanks for contacting us. Typically we send out emails and also post details on Facebook about ticket sales.

      After saying that however, today’s shows have been pretty much sold out for several days now so trying to get any tickets would be a challenge. Last I heard, there are relatively few tickets (if any) available for the 3:00P show. There is a slight possibility of tickets being available about 10-15 minutes before each show if they have not been paid for and picked up by then. We hold them until then and have stated we will release them at that time. Even with three shows, it is a popular event for parents, relatives, and friends to attend for their camper(s).
