How does the daily summer camp day go?
Every day starts with morning announcements. On day one students will learn audition material before lunch and audition after lunch. The rest of the session they will spend the morning and afternoon rehearsing for the show that they perform during the final week of the session. Students will take breaks from rehearsal to learn theater exercises and games to improve their overall skills. We do not provide breakfast or lunch, but we do break for snack every day around 2:30pm or 3:00pm and provide pretzels, ice pops, and other treats. The day ends at 4:00pm but staff stays until 5:00pm to make sure everyone is picked up.
Is my child still in the production if they are not cast in a lead role?
Yes, every camper is in all performances of the Summer Stage musical they have registered for. MTC never cuts anyone from a show. Campers do not have to audition to be in the show ensemble, however, we encourage all campers to audition to get more experience auditioning.
Do you have to take studio classes to audition to be in shows?
No, lessons are not a requirement to audition for a show. Anyone can register for any production that we do as long as they are within the specified age range and can commit to the rehearsal/performance schedule.

How do I purchase tickets?

Do actors have to provide their own costumes?
Not normally! We handle costume fittings during the rehearsal process and provide costumes for most parts. Actors are usually only asked to bring personal costume pieces such as undershirts, underwear, tights, socks, or shoes. But we will send out a costume plot to outline what each actor needs for each character and scene.
