About Spring Break Camp

Spring Break Camp is an intensive, week-long camp culminating with two performances of a fully-staged Broadway-style musical. Open to students in grades 1 – 12 and a great experience for both students who are new to theater and students who are doing theater for the first time!


 

A note about this year’s Spring Break Camp to parents/families with children in the Tacoma Public Schools (TPS) from CampTMP’s Director of Education, Linda Palacios (linda@tmp.org).

Spring Break Camp is scheduled to run from Saturday, March 30th – Sunday, April 7th, 2019.

TMP is aware that students in the Tacoma Public Schools are required to be in school on Monday, April 1st and Tuesday, April 2nd, and we have made changes to our program to accommodate those students.

Saturday, March 30th and Sunday, March 31st are full days of camp. Those attending camp on the 1st and 2nd will not be rehearsing but will be focusing on enrichment activities. Those from TPS will not miss rehearsal time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to TMP’s Director of Education, Linda Palacios at linda@tmp.org. Thank you!

His previous directing experience includes Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr with CampTMP this past summer, Scrooge! with the Auburn Community Players, Lion King Jr at Rainier Middle School, as well as a handful of One Acts and Ten-Minute Plays during his undergrad at WSU. When he isn’t sitting in the Director’s Chair, Nick is typically onstage in Bent with Changing Scene Theatre NW, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Catch Me If You Can and Little Mermaid, with TMP, Glass Menagerie and Noises Off, at Lakewood Playhouse, Hairspray, with Auburn Community Players and Fiddler on the Roof, Shrek, Tom Sawyer, and Honk with Heavier Than Air Family Theatre.

WHAT TO EXPECT
These intensive, week-long programs culminate with two performances of a fully-staged, Broadway-style musical. They are open to students in grades 1–12 and are a great experience for both students who are experienced in theater, and those who are doing theater for the first time.

COMMITMENT

Spring break camp begins with audition day! This takes place from 9:00 – 12:30 the Saturday before camp begins. One of the greatest things about the camps offered at TMP is that every student is guaranteed a part in the show. Camp runs Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Performances will take place on Friday evening, Saturday, and/or Sunday depending on the current Mainstage production.

WHAT’S INCLUDED
Students are supplied with a script and CD before camp begins. Some other perks include CampTMP t-shirts, two complimentary tickets to one of the performances, and a pizza party on the last day of rehearsal! Last, but not least, memories to last a lifetime, fun, and friendship! What could be better?

Past Camp musicals include; Annie, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Fiddler on the Roof, Honk, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Sound of Music, and The Music Man.
