Know a young thespian who would like the opportunity to grow in musical theatre and experience an immersive two-week experience this summer?
PHS Theatre Director Greg Shaw established Just Off Broadway Musical Theatre Camp for students going into sixth through 10th grades and it's been highly successful. Past productions have included "High School Musical Jr." (2015), "Legally Blonde Jr., The Musical" (2016), "All Shook Up Jr." (2017), and "Fame Jr." (2018). This year's production will be "Lion King Jr."
The camp is operated in cooperation with Memorial Auditorium in downtown Pittsburg, where all camp rehearsals are held and the show is produced. Older students who have aged out volunteer as assistants and choreographers.
