About the classes -

At Matrix Summer Camp you get to do it all - WRITE, DIRECT, ACT!

Spend two weeks working in small groups to build original performance pieces

Each day campers are guided through creative writing and play exercises to ignite the imagination. Matrix Teaching Artists will then facilitate discussions identifying topics and issues campers feel are important to them and their community. Building on their input and ideas, the playmaking begins!

Campers will develop characters and the setting, and then will stage their production.


The camp experience culminates in a final production of the youths' original performance that will be showcased the final day of each two-week camp session where family and friends are welcome.
