SUMMER CAMPS 2023
Vanguard Summerstock Theater Camps offers the FULL summer camp experience with our professionally run educational programs.
We are committed to diversity and inclusion in our casting, including the casting of culturally, linguistically, and gender diverse performers, and performers with disability in roles where race, ethnicity, sexual preference, gender or the presence or absence of disability are not relevant.
VTC KIDS teaches our youngest actors, ages 8–13, to believe in their creative ideas, express them in front of others, and learn to be supportive of their peers.
SummerstockVTC Sleepaway Intensive is an intensive sleep-away program for the serious Theater & Musical Theater performer between the ages of 12–19.
