Campers will explore the world of professional theatre from historical Broadway performances and Tony winners to the excitement of the production process. Guest speakers will present first-hand experience in the fields of design, acting, and playwriting. Campers will choose, rehearse, and receive positive critical feedback on the audition piece of their choice.
The cost for residential students is $500. It covers program fee and materials, housing, and meal plan.
The cost for commuter students is $350. It covers program fee, materials and lunch.
Students who choose to be residential are housed in campus residence halls with males and females being housed separately. Only students attending our summer programs are housed in these dorms during the summer. Students may request to room with a friend as long as both parties submit the same request. Students accepted to the program will be housed separately. Adult staff, as well as selected student counselors who serve as mentors to the participants, will supervise them.
Due to their age, Theatre Camp students are not allowed access to the Student Health Center on campus. Students requiring non-emergency medical care between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. will be transported to an urgent care facility with parent’s approval. There is not an after hours medical clinic in Oxford, so students requiring medical care after 7 p.m. and before 9 a.m. are transported to the emergency room at Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi again with parent’s approval.
Registration for Theatre Camp is a two-part process – the online registration form and additional documents submission. Both parts must be submitted to the Office of Pre-College Programs before a student is confirmed for enrollment in the program. The cost of the program is $500 Residential and $350 Commuter.
Students must be registered by May 26th, 2017 and must include full fee payment and Medical Form to complete the registration process.
Online Registration Step-By-Step
We value the safety and well-being of all our participating students. In the case emergency or medical attention is required, ALL Pre-College Program camps require parents to submit medical forms on behalf of the student. Please DO NOT forget to return this form to the Pre-College Programs office as this will hold up the registration process for your student. If you have already submitted the medical form to the Office of Pre-College Programs for a camp this summer, you will not have to submit it again.
Registrations may be cancelled up to two weeks prior to the selected week for an 80% refund. Refunds are not available if cancellation occurs less than two weeks prior to the selected week.
