Featuring Songs from Wicked

Musical Theater Featuring Songs from Wicked


WickedGet ready to defy gravity at our full day, wonderfully wicked summer camp! In addition to playing fun theater games that foster creativity, self expression and teamwork, students will learn and choose their favorite songs from the smash hit musical like “Popular”, “Dancing Through Life” and “Defying Gravity.” Working alongside one of our professional teaching artists students will rehearse their songs in addition to writing scenes to create their very own mini musical adaptation. It’s going to be WICKED!

Full day camps enable our older campers to delve deeper into their Dream Big experience. We'll have more time to engage with all areas of the theatrical experience and develop all of our newly learned skills!
