    In an effort to rebuild our theatre program (post-pandemic), we are going to offer a two-week summer camp for grades 3 - 6 and would like the camp to be geared around a 30-minute musical.  I would love suggestions and insights into your favorite shows for this age group to perform.

    Hi Stephanie! I would suggest checking previous threads (use the search feature at the top and type in "summer camp"). Here's one that I thought would be particularly helpful:

    Let us know what you end up choosing, I'm sure there are others who could benefit from your experience!

    Check out the shows from Beat by Beat. They are great. They are musicals geared for kids to perform. Awesome company to work with. I've done a couple of their shows with great success. They are about 30 minutes long.

    Hi Stephanie,

    CPA Theatricals has just released MILEY CHASE THE SCIENCE ACE for that age range.  It is about 40 minutes long, but it is easy to cut.

    We have run a camp for the past 8 years for elementary and middle school students. I highly suggest Beat to Beat. We've performed MANY of their productions. So, if you'd like any specific feedback on them, let me know.

    Thanks,
