Before you know it, you'll be on vacation from school. Have you made your plans yet? Come spend your vacation with TheatreWorks as an actor or dancer or even a mask maker. Clowns are also welcome! Our camps are the best way to have fun—on stage—when your school is out of session.

Spring Break Camps


It’s spring break and the TW PlayMakers are just getting started. Our teaching artists are taking over 3 schools for a totally fun, totally theatrical spring break. These one-week camps are focused on building acting skills, using all the tools from the actor’s toolbox: body, voice, and imagination. And what’s camp without friends? Your PlayMaker gets to be part of an ensemble that will create fun, original pieces to perform in an open workshop on the last day. Book now to make sure your TW PlayMaker is spending their spring in the spotlight!

Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

March 31 – April 4, 2014 at Nixon Elementary School in Palo Alto
March 31 – April 4, 2014 at Duveneck Elementary School in Palo Alto

Summer Camps


When your regular school is out for summer, TW PlayMakers is in session! Our professional Teaching Artists are experienced and professionally trained performers and teachers who are eager to share their specialties of juggling, clowning, puppetry, playwriting, acting, improvisation, music, and dance.

A typical day consists of students rotating between classes that teach life-long performance skills. Take a look at our camp schedule.

At the end of the day the entire camp gathers together to show off their freshly acquired skills, giving students time to relish in their new mastery of improvisation, the latest dance step, a scene they have just written, or the character they have created.

Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm

Extended Care available 8am-9am & 3pm-6pm 

Session A: June 2-13, 2014
Session B: June 16-27, 2014
