2013 Summer Education Programs
Young actors from kindergarten through eighth grade are invited to explore theatrical performance through Acme Theatre Company’s summer drama camps. Acme Theatre Company is a unique theatre organization run by high-school aged students, which has been producing “serious theatre, for the fun of it” for the past 30 years.
Each summer, under the supervision of adult mentors, high school company members teach this program of K-8 summer drama camps. Our focus is on providing young actors with a fun, energetic theatre experience. Upon graduation from 8th grade, all students are invited to join Acme Theatre Company!
This year, registration for Acme's summer classes will be through the Davis Art Center. Registration will open in March, and may be done in-person, over the phone or online:
