Come join the fun…be in a show!

Work with professionals in drama, dance, and voice in every Creative Kids Playhouse program, where the emphasis is always on meeting each performer where they are and helping them grow in a fun and encouraging environment. Kids come away from our programs having had a fun, rewarding, accomplishment filled experience.

Be in a one act musical were you have input to the character development, blocking, costume design and sets as you rehearse and create the production. Be trained by professionals in drama, dance, voice, and set design. Everyone gets a speaking part in the show. An exercise in creativity all around. This is a great environment to push yourself as an actor, try something new, and see how it works out. Brainstorm with your cast and a set designer to determine the sets for each scene. Work with the costume designer and CKP costume racks to design your character’s costume. Together with your cast, create the set pieces, props, and costume pieces that CKP doesn’t already own. Our Directors always see a difference in the abilities of performers who have participated in a Theater Immersion Camp.
