Program Overview

This program is for those children genuinely interested in performing on stage. Depending on their role, they will be working with either the Director, the choreographer, music director, or one of the stage managers. One week your child may be a villager, the next week a butterfly, and then possibly hold a featured role. The productions are designed to provide as many featured roles as possible; however, the program cannot guarantee the “lead” role to every child.  Other limited activities are included to keep children busy when they are not involved in the scene aspects of theater.

 In 2024, Summer Theater will celebrate 64 YEARS of distinguished programming, along with boasting two very prestigious awards: the National Recreation and Parks Association ‘Dorothy Mullen Arts & Humanity Award’ and the New Jersey Recreation and Parks Association ‘Excellence in Programming.’

Program Overview

The Theater Counselor-In-Training program is an opportunity for teens to learn aspects of being a counselor in our theater camp setting, while also having an opportunity to perform in all productions. While this is a CITs last year getting to perform at theater camp, their parts will be given out through the same audition process as the campers, not based on an individual's years with the program.
