YST Summer Camps

Registration closed for 2021

Program directors Jack (www.imdb.me/jackjbennett) and Gloria Bennett produced their first theatre camp in the summer of 1997, and have since produced more than 30 camps and nearly 200 shows together, most with all-youth casts. 

YST camp is the place for the youth actor who wants to grow as an actor and have the time of their lives.  YST camp trains the actor in all aspects of performance, helping their skill set expand while producing a high level show. If your child is up to the challenge, YST summer camp is the place for them! 

Registration is closed for 2021.  

Full camp day is 10am to 2pm, Monday thru Friday. The 4 hour camp day includes a lunch break and snack break. 

Balance of tuition is due a minimum of three weeks prior to the start of camp. Deposit is non-refundable, except as stated below.

All campers pay the registration fee/deposit, but a limited number of work/intern scholarships are available by audition.  To request a scholarship audition, please check the appropriate box when registering, and pay the appropriate deposit. If scholarship is not granted, and you are not able to do the camp, your deposit will be refunded.

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda Jr., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence... and special powers! She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
