Summer camp programs at CTA give each participant the opportunity to learn the basics of theatre, expand their imagination, develop voice, dance and performance techniques, and much more. All training, workshops and camps are aimed to specific age and skill groups.
CTA plans to have live (in-person) summer camps. This will, of course, depend upon any State & Anne Arundel County COVID-19 restrictions.
Note: CTA is committed to making theatre education available to all, regardless of income status. If tuition poses a financial hardship, scholarships and payment plans are available. For a payment plan or scholarship information, please reach out to executive director, April Forrer, at . Queries will be kept confidential.
