Musical Theater Camp

PAW offers the ultimate arts experience, from rehearsal to performance, in a safe, nurturing and non-competitive environment. PAW Musical Theater campers do not need to audition for a place in camp or for a part in the show. Every child will receive a role in the show based on individual aptitude and what will best suit their comfort level. Our teachers are specialists in their fields and have extensive experience working with children. Many of our teachers work professionally in theater, film and television and/or have their bachelors or masters degrees in their respective fields.

“To be an actor, you have to be a child.”
- Paul Newman

Step into the spotlight and come shine on stage! If you’ve been “bit by the acting bug,” come join us for an exciting adventure in theater! Winner of 2010’s BEST Children’s Live Theater and BEST Summer Camp in LA Parent Magazine, PAW’s Musical Theater summer camp is a creative, safe haven where kids ages 5 – 14 can learn the craft of acting.

Expand your horizons and awaken the artist within! Young actors of all skill levels are welcome, from novices to seasoned thespians alike. All you need is a little curiosity and a love for performing!

PAW’s core curriculum of acting, dance, voice & speech is designed with children in mind. Coupled with the guidance of our teachers, the curriculum fosters a “creative state” with which students are empowered to realize their personal and artistic potential. In addition to these core skills, our campers will also enjoy learning about physical comedy, stage presence, commercials, playwriting, stage combat, improv and much, much, more!

  • Family and friends are able to attend our shows without ever having to buy or sell a ticket to the performances…they are free!

  • We post free camp photos and video reels on our Facebook page for family and friends to enjoy and download.
  • We encourage parents to enjoy taking photos and video for their personal enjoyment of our camp shows.

They also clear a criminal background check prior to being placed in the classroom. 
  • Our focus is on the educational value of an arts experience, utilizing a child friendly and family friendly approach.
  • PAW works hard to ensure no child goes without an arts education if they want one.  We have scholarship assistance, family & friend discounts, and a company culture of caring.
