From wizardry and circus skills to acting, dancing, and singing: performing arts programs for kids take center stage at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts this summer.

Fairfield University’s Quick Center invites artsy kids to take part in an eclectic range of performing arts camps and courses over their summer vacation. Beginning July 8 and running through the week of August 12, the Quick will host six separate weeks of action-packed, in-person theatre arts camps and courses for students in grades 1 through 12.

Missoula Children’s Theatre:
No experience necessary! Now in its 33rd year, the Missoula Children’s Theatre summer camp program offers an on-stage role for any students in grades 1 through 12 who are interested in spending a week immersed in theatre arts. Each fun-filled week prepares young actors to take part in a full-scale Friday evening production on the Quick Center stage — complete with costumes, songs, and dance! Registration is now open for the following weeks/performances:

  • Pinocchio: July 8–12
  • Robin Hood: July 15–19
  • Jack and the Beanstalk: July 22–26
  • Gulliver’s Travels: July 29 – August 2
  • The Wizard of Oz: August 5–9
  • The Pied Piper: August 12–16

A variety of speaking and ensemble roles are offered each week. No advance preparation is needed. The camp runs Monday through Thursday from 9:15 a.m. until 2 p.m. Rehearsals include instruction in acting, dancing, music, and art. On Friday, students arrive to the theatre for dress rehearsal at 3:30 p.m. and stay through showtime. Families and friends are invited to attend the 7:30 p.m. Friday performance.
