Summer Camp Shows

2017 Summer Camps

Broadway Bound Session I Cabrillo -“Animotion”

Broadway Bound Session II Sunset Ridge -“Animotion”

A wonderfully imaginative revue for budding actors, depicting in song and movement the joys and woes of seven different animals. There are worried kangaroos, wild and crazy monkeys, stubborn mules and rockin’ rollin; polar bears. Put them all together for piles of musical fun. The songs are connected by clever rhyming narration. Live accompaniment features in a play that will delight children and adults as well.

Spotlight Stars Sessions I & II CABRILLO “Guys and Dolls Jr.”

Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950 and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser’s brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.

Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.


Spotlight Stars Sessions I & II, SUNSET RIDGE “Oliver Twist”

A Musical Adaptation of the Charles Dickens Classic. Composed by George L.O. Strid and Mary Donnelly. Bring the past to life with this musical adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens tale.While not the same musical selections as the Lionel Bart “Oliver!” the music and script for this show make it a perfect fit for a Spindrift Spotlight Stars Camp. Young Oliver Twist finds adventure and intrigue with Fagin, Bill Sikes, the Artful Dodger, Nancy and all the other young street urchins. This musical features an expanded script and eight original songs.


Teen Training Spindrift “Cyrano de Burgershack”

Cyrano is king of the local Burger Shack, but he can’t seem to win the love of his best friend, Roxanne. When Roxanne confesses her crush on the new burger-flipper, Christian, Cyrano decides that playing Cupid is better than sitting out of the game. An updated, modern-day version of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, this rollicking musical features hit contemporary pop songs that will have audiences cheering.

Actor’s Studio “The Seussification of Romeo & Juliet”

A whimsical reinvention of Shakespeare’s tragic love story, complete with rhymed couplets, creative wordplay, and fantastical machines — similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with if he ever had his way with the script…

Center Stage Dance Camp “Alice in Wonderland”
Tech Intensive Specialized Tech Training camp in Theatre Technology

Dancers focus on the art of storytelling through dance. This summer’s original production will tell the story of Alice in her fantastical journey through Wonderland. With a combination of intensive focus on technique and various classes students will be involved in the process from beginning to end.  The opportunity exists for up to 8 theatre technicians to deliver a full set and lighting designs for this show. Center Stage is consistently one of our most unique, collaborative camps of the summer. Must have some dance experience.
