Adapted from the Tony Award-Winning best musical, Annie Jr. has captured the attention of audiences around the world! Children 8 – 14 years old can now join the cast of this captivating theatrical production by participating in the Performing Arts Camp. Performing Arts Camp focuses on the production of a show from rehearsal through to final performance, with costumes, lighting, and scenery.

Directed by renowned director Courtney Simson, participants will learn the nuances of performing arts and showcase their efforts at the end of the week for live audiences.
