MESSAGE FROM OUR ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Carousel Players Summer Theater School is pleased to announce our in-person drama camps for this summer. We are delighted to be offering several creative opportunities in drama for children in Niagara! We have a roster of talented drama educators leading the camps who have thoughtfully crafted their sessions. We also have trained staff and volunteers to ensure safety and individual attention for all campers.
Each camp program will guide participants through games, activities and experiences that teach them individual skills, but also give them the chance to make new friends. They will also collaborate with an ensemble to create a final performance that will be recorded so families can watch from home. Our goal is to foster children’s love of creativity in a safe and supportive environment, with expert artistic leadership.
Carousel Players invites you and your children to engage with the arts through our long running summer theatre school this year. See you on stage!
