2023 CAMP FAQ'S

Why CTSS camps vs other camps?

  • CTSS camps are a great way for for performers to grow their confidence, make new friends, and build their performance resumes.

  • A talented, creative, and dedicated team of teaching artists who love what they do.

  • Smaller camp sizes = more stage time and individualized attention!

    • No child will be hidden in the back row or relegated to only a few ensemble numbers. Every child cast will shine on stage and have their moment in the spotlight. We are not a factory or daycare. We pride ourselves on creating a pre-professional program that specializes in cultivating and nurturing young talent. By the end of camp, your child will be beaming with confidence and newly learned skills!

Are there Auditions?

  • Yes, but we do not hold auditions for participation in our summer programs. As long as there is availability within a session, all families are welcome to register. On the first day, we will hold low stakes role placements in order to help us figure out the best way to feature each camper and set them up for success. In the case of Amélie, role placement will be held before camp starts. Everyone who registers is guaranteed a part. Auditions materials will come from the shows and will be posted the beginning of May.

How are the days Structured?

  • We keep your children busy! Putting together a full show in 2 or 3 weeks takes quite a bit of planning and efficiency. We run a round-robin model where our teaching artists divide and conquer in the areas of acting, dance, and music. At the end of every day, we share-out what we learn and begin piecing the show together. Your child will be proud to share all they accomplished by the end of each day.
