Is your living room a stage? With your kids as the players? Maybe your child walks into the kitchen with a flourish and your teen sings in the shower. Maybe your kids are just acting up! Either way, it sounds like a week at a summer theatre camp is just what they need! Storybook Theatre, one of Calgary’s premiere theatres for young audiences, is back with summer camps and programming to give kids a place on the stage. It’s time to shine!

For decades, Storybook Theatre has been delighting children of all ages with charming performances and popular stories. Their theatre productions are filled with incredible talent, both on and off the stage, so the whole family can enjoy a show together. They bring alive stories to entertain, inspire, and connect us. The summer camps at Storybook are a unique opportunity for kids to explore different perspectives and dream about who they are and who they might become.

The summer theatre camps and programs at Storybook Theatre are designed to take kids ages 6 – 17 on a theatre journey, where they can express themselves, create, and perform in a safe and supportive environment. Camps run from July to early August and they all include a final presentation.

Summer Theatre Camps

The Summer Theatre Camps are designed so kids ages 6 – 12 can create a play in a week of fun! These camps run weekly from July 2 – August 9, 2024. Here students will learn how to navigate the creation of their own play in a safe theatre space. With writing, producing, casting, and rehearsing, kids will gain confidence and be empowered through taking ownership of a creative project. They will show off their accomplishments to their family when they present their play with the final theatre presentation on the last day of camp.

Looking for more? Older kids and teens can attend a three-week Summer Spotlight, creating theatre magic, while they work on Finding Nemo Kids (ages 9 – 12) and Finding Nemo Jr. (ages 13 – 17). Kids ages 9 – 12 years will attend from July 2 – 19, 2024, and teens ages 13 – 17 years can attend from July 22 – August 9, 2024.
