DAMPA is excited to offer a variety of amazing camps this Summer! We have 2 main camps – Musical Theatre Camp and our Triple Threat Camp, which are both half day camps and will sell out very quickly. Due to high demand, we are offering 3 sessions of each.

For students who would enjoy an extended camp experience, we are offering several camps that take place directly after the half day camps. Please note, that some of these “add on camps” are only offered the first or last week of each session.

Musical Theatre Camps

Into The Woods

Join us for a fantastic adventure in our summer production of “Into the Woods”

An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch…who raps? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale. When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of “The Princess Bride” becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, INTO THE WOODS is a timeless yet relevant piece and a rare modern classic.
