The theme may be the same for both camps, but the musical selections will be entirely different, so if you fit the age range, sign up for both sessions! Due to the fast pace of instruction, it is required that students attend ALL rehearsals for the FULL time and attend ALL performances in order to participate. Class size is limited and spaces fill up quickly, so register early! 2 weeks of full day sessions, no previous experience necessary. First 7 days of rehearsals are held at the MTA studio location in Newport Beach, before moving into the theater. All-singing, all-dancing, all FUN, so don’t miss out on the action!
