Join us this summer for a unique camp experience that you won’t want to miss!

At Overshadowed’s Youth Theater camps, you will:

  • Participate in workshops including text work, movement, voice, audition skills, and team building
  • Learn more about the theatrical arts
  • Sharpen your acting skills
  • Develop life skills like confidence and teamwork
  • Make new friends and lasting memories!
  • Audition for and perform a real production

Choose from two exciting camps, or attend them both for a discounted price!

Each two-week camp includes drama, team competitions, game times and more!!

At Overshadowed’s Jr Theater Camp, you will focus on the three musical theater disciplines:

  • Acting
  • Dance
  • Voice

Students will learn audition techniques for all three areas and learn key principles of each to create a well-balanced musical theater actor.

This one-week camp finishes with a performance where the skills learned during the week are put into practice!

At Overshadowed's camp for our youngest thespians, the focus is less on a specific production and more on theater skills such as: 

  • Singing
  • Choreography
  • Diction
  • Staging

In order to keep these young campers engaged, games and drama activities will be used to reinforce learning. 

This 3 day camp conclues with a showcase for friends and family to see the newly acquired skills!

"Oh the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
Seussical JR. provides wonderful creative opportunities and has a large cast of “Seussian” creatures.

Return to Mitford by Robert Inman. Adapted from the Mitford novels by Jan Karon

Father Tim Kavanagh is the much-loved bachelor rector of Lord's Chapel church in the close-knit mountain community of Mitford, surrounded by long-time friends and parishioners—church secretary Emma, housekeeper Puny, local mayor Esther, a covey of eccentric regulars at the Main Street Grill, elderly heiress Miss Sadie Baxter, and jokester Uncle Billy and his dotty wife, Miss Rose, who likes to direct traffic wearing a military trench coat and rubber boots. Father Tim's life is absorbed with the life of his town and the pastoring of his lively congregation. But things change radically when Father Tim takes in teenager Dooley Barlow, the unruly orphaned grandson of the church gardener, and again when he falls in love with and weds his new next-door neighbor, Cynthia Coppersmith, who writes and illustrates award-winning children's books. Father Tim and Cynthia struggle with the idea of his possibly retiring from his long career as a parish priest. He neglects his diet and exercise and is injured when he goes into a diabetic coma while driving and wrecks his car. During his recuperation, he battles depression as he agonizes over questions about his worth, his work and his future. Meanwhile, Dooley has grown into a fine young man, and as he heads off to a prestigious college (financed by Miss Sadie), he asks Father Tim and Cynthia to adopt him. Father Tim prays for direction and finds an answer through scripture. In a final sermon, he surrenders himself to God's will and is soon rewarded by his bishop with a new job as part-time minister of a struggling rural church. Hand in hand with Cynthia, he steps confidently into his future.
