Stages & Studios
Brooks Stages & Studios is an immersive experience for those interested in exploring the many facets of the visual and performing arts and participating in a traditional summer camp environment.
Stages & Studios welcomes newcomers and seasoned performers. From those interested in exploring visual and performing arts or working behind the scenes on a production, the numerous offerings of Stages & Studios will fit your child’s interests.
A team of industry professionals leads each program and lend their talents and experience to ensure participants are supported in achieving their artistic potential. Throughout the summer, Stages & Studios provides a variety of one and. two-week programs. Productions of classic titles from Disney’s Moana and Legally Blonde will develop young actors singing, acting, and dancing skills. Thematic one-week programs explore the creative components of arts & crafts, music, and performing arts in themed weeks such as Fairytale Detectives or On Safari.
Providing variety in our summer offerings of Stages & Studios ensures all skill levels and interests are represented. Brooks TV provides the opportunities to be in front of the camera or work on the filming and editing side. Jumping on stage in one of the many production-focused programs will bring out the performer in your child. For those interested in the technical side of theater, the tech troupe will explore lighting, set design, and stage management.
Like the day camp, this program is broken down by age. We have four groups (Junior Players Ages 5-8, Playmakers Ages 8-10, Showstoppers Ages 11-13, and Teen Ensemble Ages 14-18).
Participants will gain artistry skills, increasing their ability to execute excellent technique, through instruction from our experienced and diverse team. We bring in theatre professionals with an invaluable depth of knowledge and years of experience in the field to truly provide a meaningful and long-lasting experience for our students. This is a chance for students to learn from the best the area has to offer and become a triple threat performer. The wealth of knowledge to be gained from our teaching professionals in Stages & Studios gives students a chance to explore visual and performing arts as a craft of expression and creativity.
Create, Play, and Grow
In Stages & Studios, the only limitations are one’s imagination. Come to explore theatre, music, and visual arts, and leave with a new appreciation and understanding. The carefully crafted schedule seeks to maximize exposure to the visual and performing arts while offering a balance of social and emotional growth.
Our youngest Junior Players and Playmakers participants will find the opportunity to engage in traditional camp activities ranging from organized games to gymnastics and tennis. Swimming is part of this program. All camp activities are led by dedicated youth development professionals.
Those in Showstoppers, ages 11 to 13, and Teen Ensemble, ages 14 to 18, will hone singing, acting, and dancing skills through technique-based classes and learn the elements of performing in a musical with blocking, acting instruction, scene and character study, vocal technique, and movement- for beginners to pros! Every student will be challenged and take away valuable performing, public speaking, and social skills.
With four distinct groups, we can ensure instruction is age-appropriate and that each child has the opportunity to work in an environment that will help them grow.
For our youngest participants, the focus of Stages & Studios is on exploring creative arts through the lens of a thematic week. Each session will culminate in a showcase that celebrates the children and highlights all of their artistic experiences and work into one event. For our older groups, each session culminates in a workshop performance or showcase. Performances are open to friends and family members.
