Teen Summer Ensemble (Grades 6-9)

July 6-25

Play Production: The Princess and the Pea, Written by Conservatory Director Stephanie Temple

It’s hard to be a princess...especially when all you wanna do is take a nap! In this adaptation of The Princess and the Pea, a girl must prove her true identity through a series of ridiculous tasks. And when the royal family she meets is desperate to find a match for their unwilling prince, their exhaustive tests only get wilder. Wedding planners, spooky ghosts, dancing trolls and over-zealous castle guards inhabit this whacky story, featuring the “Royal Booty Dance.”


In a professional theatre setting, students will learn acting skills, develop audition techniques and rehearse a fully-produced play (with professionally designed costumes and sets) culminating in 5 public performances.



Dates: July 6-25, Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm. (5 Performances, July 23-25, 11am-1pm)


Day/Time: Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm


Tuition: $950 for 3-wk camp
