Summer Stages Theater Camp

Summer Stages Theater Camp

Take center stage at Summer Stages!

A theatrical partnership between Portledge Summer Adventures and mainstages!

Enjoy the theater camp experience in a supportive Performing Arts environment led by a nationally renowned professional children’s theater company.

“Two Weeks. One Performance. Endless Fun!”

Led by professional Teaching Artists and Theater Directors, mainstages takes a process-oriented approach that focuses on the 4 C’s of theater: Community, Character, Confidence & Creativity. In doing so, we ensure that children are focusing on the bigger picture, strengthening communication and teamwork. 

We know that no theatrical production is possible without the collaboration and joint vision of a community working towards the same goal.  That’s why we strive to create an experience that captures each camper’s special skills, makes each camper feel valued, and gives each camper time in the spotlight.
