Award-Winning South Coast Repertory Summer Acting Workshop

Kids and teens (grades 4-12) build confidence and self-esteem in a safe and welcoming setting. The fun-filled two-week camps are designed for students new to SCR and introduce them to solving creative problems through inspiration and innovation!

Enthusiastic and experienced professional artists will help students explore and deepen their understanding of the craft of acting and strengthen important life skills. Classes meet in the safe and creative environment of Tony Award-winning South Coast Repertory, which has been at the forefront of theatre in America for more than 50 years.

What’s a day like at the camp? Each day begins with an invigorating warm-up. Class time follows, two lively hours of interactive instruction in voice, movement, character development and more—led by SCR’s staff of theatre professionals. The final hour is spent with special guests who bring to life various aspects of theatre, such as design, improvisation, combat, singing and playwriting—it’s something different every day. The two-week ​camp concludes with students sharing their work onstage in a demonstration for invited family and friends.
