We are still in the middle of my child's week with the Austin Children's Theater, but so far it has been a very positive experience! He loves it!

We are very happy with the camp so far and hope to send my niece back when she visits next year.

My son doesn't like to try anything new and I was nervous about him wanting to quit the first day As he does quite a few thing but he absolutely loved everything about it. He definitely will be going back!!!

What You'll Get


Summer camp provides kids with lasting memories, lifelong friendships, and the opportunity to capture flags without causing an international incident. Give kids something to do with today’s Groupon: for $137, you get enrollment in a five-day summer camp from Austin Children's Theater (a $275 value). Camps are open to kids ages 5–12 and are held at Genesis Presbyterian Church from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day. Choose from the following camp options:

Wanna Be GLEE! — Star of the Screen, held July 11–15.
Shake-a-Speare, held July 18–22.
MASKerade … The Show Must Go On!, held July 25–29.

Austin Children's Theater's team of dedicated instructors nurtures the natural talents of creative kids who are eager to explore musical, dramatic, and European theater. Croon through a catalog of popular songs at Wanna Be GLEE! camp, where performers reinvent the art of high-school note-passing with songs, friendship, and dance moves. The camp concludes with a world-premiere screening that soars with more four-part harmonies than a 1992 pop chart. The Shake-a-Speare camp looks at the famed bard's work, letting thespians explore Renaissance theater and engage in basic stage combat while reciting language from popular, timeless plays. All students will perform an original show on the final day for grandparents, parents, and lingering imaginary friends. Mini artistic visionaries can craft masks inspired by European carnival and Cirque du Soleil during the MASKerade camp. Feathers, glue, and paint help conjure up imaginary characters brought to life through interpretative-dance performances and pantomimed love letters.

Austin Children Theater's summer camps boast a student-to-teacher ratio of 15:1 for an intimate, on-stage learning experience. Each camp includes a final showcase on its respective Friday at 4 p.m. to bolster performance abilities of future Tony Award winners while ensuring inspirational fodder for acceptance speeches.
