 Using the frameworks of legends, myths, fairy tales, your child will learn the basics of acting, song writing, singing, dance choreography, collaborative story development, scene and prop construction, and gain new, specialized skills each week as they work together to create an original story. At the end of each week, campers will perform their own new story for friends and family in CCT’s Pritzker Family Studio Theatre. 

So come and tell modern stories, make new friends, and create big, wonderful shows. Wield a sword, fly to the sun, build a kingdom, live underwater, battle giants, and befriend beasts. Travel the universe!

Over the course of two weeks, children ages 6 to 11 will rehearse, create costumes, paint sets, act, sing, and dance as they prepare to star in one of Chicago Children’s Theatre’s mainstage shows. On the final day the campers will perform the musical live for family and friends on the stage of Chicago Children’s Theatre’s Pritzker Family Studio. 

We believe every child should have access to our programming regardless of financial position. We make every effort to provide scholarships for children and families with demonstrated need. 

Inclusion and access are core values at CCT. We believe, and research supports, that access to high-quality theatre arts learning experiences is essential to enhance individual development and improved functioning in school, work, and community settings. We know exposure to the theatre can increase a child’s capacity for empathy, ultimately cultivating a more accepting society. 

Annually, 1 in 5 youth at CCT will receive financial assistance to participate in this game-changing programming. If you would like to add your name to our list of THEATRE EDUCATION ACCESS supporters, or if you would like more information on our financial assistance program, contact us today! 

Thanks to the generosity of the Susan M. Venturi Fund in memory of James and Roslyn Marks, financial assistance is available for our education programs.
