Join us to create theatre magic this year as we excitedly return to in-person Summer Camp! Lookingglass Theatre Company’s Summer Camp offers a four-week immersive experience in theater, movement, music, and art, for young people in grades 3-8. Your young artist will receive training from professionals in the core values of Lookingglass Theatre: Collaboration, Transformation, and Invention.
These values have guided the Lookingglass Ensemble to create some of the most memorable and spectacular theatre experiences and they will guide your camper on their journey as they explore their own creativity while writing, rehearsing, and performing an original show featuring their own art, dance, and original music. At the end of Summer Camp, your child and their newly created performance piece will be featured on the Lookingglass Main Stage at the historic Water Tower Water Works.
