Camp Broadway, a performing arts summer camp for theatre-loving kids ages 10 to 17, will pitch its tent at ASU Gammage June 6 through 10.

The camp gives young people an introduction to Broadway, on stage and behind-the-scenes. More than 80 campers from across the state and from as far away as Hong Kong are expected to participate. The camp is intended for kids of all interests. Enthusiasm is the only requirement; no theatre experience is needed.

“This is the 12th year that we have hosted Camp Broadway,” says ASU Gammage Executive Director Colleen Jennings-Roggensack. “It’s a great way to introduce Broadway to new generations, so that we can keep live theatre alive.”

Camp classes include acting, scene study, improvisation, music theory, singing and dancing. Tuition is $600. To register, call 480-965-5062.
