SUMMER STAGES provides an opportunity for children, youth and young adults (ages 6-24) to pursue theatrical activities and training through two different programs. GLEEK OUT! is for ages 6-15  and The CAST Program for ages 15-24. The two programs are structured to suit any skill level or interest in singing, dancing or acting. Overall these programs are all about learning in STAGES and getting on STAGE!


GLEEK OUT! is a performing arts summer camp for ages 6-15. Over the course of the week, campers will experience a number of popular styles of music and dance as they take part in choral and choreography sessions. Each session is lead by professional choreographers, artists and musicians. You will also bring home your own recording demo to show all of your friends! And if that wasn’t enough, end this amazing week in flashy costumes as you present a professional mini-musical theater showcase for your family and friends.

July 10-14 – Age 6-8
July 17-21 – Age 12-15
July 24-28 – Age 8-10
August 21-25 – Age 10-12

9:00 am – 4:00 pm daily.  Pre- and post-camp care is available from 8:00 – 5:00 daily at an extra cost.

GLEEK OUT! is $295 per camper. If you register before June 30th, receive a 10% discount.


The goal of The CAST Program is to give young performers (ages 15-24) a unique training experience and the tools necessary to take their love of the arts to the next level as they continue to pursue post-secondary, community or professional performance opportunities.

Now in its sixth year, The CAST Program will be presenting Legally Blonde – The Musical. Program start date is July 14 with classes & rehearsals every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. The production will run Aug 24-26.
