We are thrilled to announce the return of our Let's Put on a Play! and Let's Put on a Musical! Summer Camps, led PBTS Education Director (from 2005 - 2014) Barbara Colaciello, PBTS Associate Director (from 2013-2016) Bradley Akers, and professional actress and teacher Jen Mercer! These multi-week summer camp sessions are designed to engage the imagination of each young performer while deepening an appreciation and understanding of various art forms coming together to create an exciting piece of theatre. An Open House will be held in late February for more information and the chance to meet the instructors!
