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

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about our drama camps:

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!

2. What about lunch?
Campers must bring their own lunch each day. Pizza may be ordered one day each week, if desired.
Bring money for a weekly trip to GO! to a nearby store for ice cream which is also on the schedule!

3. Where and when?
All camps are held from 9 AM to 3 PM at the
Riverside Arts Center,
76 N. Huron in downtown Ypsilanti.

4. Can a camper attend more than one camp?
If they are entering grade 6 (junior and middle school camps) or grade 9 (middle and high school camps), yes.

5. Why are your rates so low?
We are passionate about the arts and we want to make our camps affordable to all families.
