This is where it all comes together, where we finally get to serve a meal. After days and weeks of hard work, our Showcases are the opportunity for us to, well, show off. All the disciplines come together in an exciting weekend festival that allow us to celebrate in our talents and enjoy our last times together before camp comes to a close.
The Senior Camp showcases live performance and film screenings separately. The final performance showcase is on the final Saturday of camp. It is a thematically cohesive performance showcasing all of the campers as “complete” artists. Afternoon rehearsals prepare campers to integrate into the opening and closing numbers. Between the opening and closing numbers is nearly two hours of scenes and monologues from contemporary published playwrights as well as TAP campers, and songs and dances from Broadway musical repertoire. Film shorts written and produced by filmmaking majors and performed by performance majors will be screened for friends, family and campers at 1pm on Sunday.

The Junior Camp final performance showcase is on the final day of camp. It combines singing, dancing and acting by all campers in a twenty to thrity minute showcase performance. Using songs from Broadway and Disney repertoire, the campers learn to sing and dance to both popular and more obscure songs. Typically, the songs are strung together by a theme or storyline.

The Advanced Camp does not have a final showcase for friends and family. As the camp focus is on college auditions, the campers will have a final mock audition, preparing them for the pressure of the college audition process. It is therefore, not a performance, and is closed to the public.
