Shine Like A Star On Stage: Spring Break & Summer Theater Camps Are Now Open

February 15, 2024

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is preparing to kick off a new season of its award-winning and sought-after spring and summer theater camps for young kids and teens of all ages who want to shine like a star on stage. As enrollment for both Spring Break Theater Camp and Summer Theater Camp 2024 is currently open, prospective students and parents are encouraged to register soon as available spots are quickly running out.

Spring Break Theater Camp 2024
From Annie to Zombie Prom and awe-inspiring drama to zany comedy, young campers will go through the entire alphabet to learn everything about the theater from A to Z as Spring Break Theater Camp returns to the Rose Miniaci Arts Education Center for a fun-filled week of singing, dancing, acting and more March 25th - March 29th.

The five-day camp is under the direction of The Performance Project School of the Arts’ Executive Director Nina Felice, who shares hands-on experience in musical theater, acting, dance, voice and technical production with students from different ages and experience, culminating with a live performance of How To Be A Star From A to Z on a professional stage at the Broward Center on March 29th at 6:00 p.m.

Camps are divided into three age-appropriate groups for grades 2 - 5 (Group A), grades 6 - 8 (Group B) and grades 9 -12 (Teen Program, Group C). The Teen Program is particularly helpful for teens who are preparing for competitions and auditions as they can earn volunteer hours by helping the younger campers in the morning. Afterwards, teen campers receive coaching on a song and/or monologue in the afternoon which they perform on the final day.

All camps are held from Monday, March 25th through Friday, March 29th from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Tuition is $315 for Groups A and B and $165 for Group C. Early camp hours are also available from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. for $35; After Camp hours are available from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. for $65; or both before and after camp for $100 Per Session.

Or by emailing: registrar@browardcenter.org. Online registration closes at noon on Friday before the camp's start date.

Summer Theater Camp 2024
This program is presented in partnership with The Performance Project School of the Arts and is divided into two sessions at three locations: the Rose Miniaci Arts Education Center at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center in Miami-Dade and at the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center at Nova Southeastern University in Davie.

Taught by professional performing arts teachers under the direction of Executive Director Nina Felice, the camps deliver hands-on experience in musical theater, acting, dance, voice and technical production in camps created for different ages and experience levels. Each camp session culminates in a live performance on the Broward Center’s Amaturo Theater stage. As part of enrollment, each camper also receives a Summer Theater Camp 2024 T-Shirt and a Cast Photo.

Each of the two Summer Theater Camp 2024 Sessions is divided into age-appropriate experiences. Group A Camp is designed for children ages 7 to 9 and offers classes in acting, singing, dance and arts and crafts.

Additionally, Group B Camp is also open to ages 10 to 14 at the Aventura locations.

In addition, Young Professionals Camp for teens ages 13-18 is open for enrollment by audition for campers with previous experience, and campers must participate in a full seven-day, four-week program with additional performance dates.
