In Cate’s 5 years of study­ing musi­cal the­atre, TAP has been the most pro­fes­sion­al triple threat train­ing my daugh­ter has received. She has grown in to a con­fi­dent per­former thanks in large part to her TAP sum­mer expe­ri­ences. - Debra Gillham

The 2‑week camp is an advanced musi­cal the­atre pro­gram. Campers take class­es in voice, dance and act­ing. The class­es are designed for stu­dents who seri­ous­ly want to grow in these areas. In com­par­i­son to the 1‑week camp, these campers are giv­en more advanced mate­r­i­al and fol­low a more struc­tured class and rehearsal sched­ule.
Showcase: 1pm Saturday June 20, 2020

*NOTE: All campers for TAP Junior, TAP Senior, and TAP Advanced are required to audi­tion at the begin­ning of camp. Auditions are held for many rea­sons. The staff will get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to know all the campers and their strengths and weak­ness­es in all types of per­for­mance. Additionally the staff will be able to make cast­ing deci­sions about the final show­case, place campers in the cor­rect class lev­els, and make sure that all class­es are chal­leng­ing and appro­pri­ate. All campers will par­tic­i­pate in mul­ti­ple sec­tions of the audi­tion. The audi­tion process will be con­duct­ed in a pro­fes­sion­al and encour­ag­ing envi­ron­ment. It will be fun, but we are expect­ing your per­son­al best. Visit Placement Auditions for more infor­ma­tion.
