Camp Policies & Details


MTH has made the bold decision to re-invent our entire summer camp program to be distributed virtually.
We wanted to make sure our  summer curriculum was designed specifically for this moment; the idea of taking our existing camps and presenting them via zoom was not a strong or innovative enough option for our campers, and so we have re-imagined and re-invented the curriculum specifically for digital engagement.
Each camp remains uniquely different; however, this is an opportunity to do new things that we never could do in person. Virtual photography, animation, and multi-media final performances viewable by relatives all over the world! We still hold true that experiences last forever… and this summer MTH camps are more exciting than ever!

Incoming grades 6 – 12

Broadway Bound (2-week Intensive)

June 1 – 12, 9:00am – noon
CAMP FULL!

Auditions have been held virtually for years and yet there has never been a camp dedicated to HOW to best represent yourself in an online audition. Many professional theaters right here in KC have conducted virtual auditions over the last few weeks, even!  This two-week camp will focus on perfecting your professional virtual musical theater audition! We will be learning and utilizing online tools to make you stand out as a performer, online! The session will also include a cutting edge Zoom photo shoot and a fe special guests – you never know who will join the call next! You will leave the camp with everything you need to confidently enter any audition (virtual or in person!) including a headshot, resume, complete audition rep book, as well as skills in virtual audition setup and presentation. At the end of the session, students will participate in an exclusive audition with MTH Artistic staff and other local professional directors and actors.

*This is a two week camp. Enrollment in this camp is $350

NEW! Behind the Scenes (2-week Intensive)

June 1 – 12, 12:30 – 3:30pm

NEW THIS SUMMER! ~ This two-week camp will focus on learning the ropes of the ENTIRE theater. Students will be immersed in the world of theater design and hear first-hand from local professionals. What does a costume rendering look like? What does a lighting plot look like? What is a scenic rendering? You will get to SEE it all, and since many of those designs are generated digitally, this is the PERFECT platform to learn about them. As we learn about each department, students will design their own theatrical scene, to be presented at the end of the session! MTH is excited to collaborate with local professionals to provide our students information from the best and the brightest in Kansas City’s Production Community.

*This is a two week camp. Enrollment in this camp is $350
