The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the treehouse and make their way home.

Frequently Asked Questions & Camp Details

Our Spotlight Theatre Camps are full day camps for students ranging from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

For theatre camps, students will work alongside arts and theatre professionals and teaching artists during daily rehearsals, in dancing, singing, acting, and visual arts. With props and costumes, singing, and scene-work, your child's experience will culminate in a performance of an exciting, youth-appropriate main stage show for friends and family.

Scholarships

A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available to students based on financial need. To apply, click here

Can I attend the camp with my student?

We want each camper to be immersed in the experiences and lessons throughout the week. To that end, parents & guardians are not permitted to attend camp sessions. Parents, friends, and family members are invited to attend the free performances on Saturday.

May students just register for one or two days of the camp?

Due to the performance-based nature of the camp, students are required to participate the entire week.

What is the check-out procedure after the final performance on Saturday?

All campers will need to change out of their costumes and turn in each costume piece to the show director. Because of the large number of campers and costume pieces, it will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes once the show has ended before you may sign your child out.

What is included with the Registration?

  • Camp T-shirt
  • Performances admission
  • Interactive workshops
  • A special award

What are the performance times for Saturday?

There are two great performances to close each week of our Spotlight Theatre Camps. On the Saturday of each camp, we will present performances at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM. Campers may not check out between performances and are expected to be present for both performances.

What is the cancellation policy?

A refund (less a $10 registration fee) is available with a 30-day notice prior to the start of the camp session. Unfortunately, refunds are not available within 30 days of the camp.
