About SMT Summer Camp
Camp runs from Sunday, June 11, 2023 at 2:00pm until Saturday, June 17, 2023 at 5:00pm.
At the Heidelberg University Summer Music and Theatre Camp, students can have it all. You can perform! You can create! You can design! You can LEAD on and off the stage. Our faculty have experience preparing young artists to take on the world. This summer, we’re excited to offer you the opportunity to sing in the choir, play in the band, and develop your skills in the theatre. Learn how to prepare for a career in the Arts!
Campers may choose up to two ensemble tracks (Band, Choir, or Theatre) and spend their week in those activities.
- Theatre - Spend the week on stage or behind the scenes, learning all that goes into producing a full musical!
- Band - Bring your band friends and make new ones while playing your instrument!
- Choir - Explore the world of choral music and all that the voice can do!
In addition to the track activities, we offer classes and small group experiences in many areas of theatre and music. Your schedule is yours to customize as you like from the following:
Brass | Woodwinds | Percussion | Voice | Piano Conducting | Songwriting and Composition | Marching Band Techniques | Music Theory | Dance | Fight Choreography | Lighting | Sound Design | Stagecraft | Acting | Makeup
We offer formal and informal performance opportunities throughout the week. You might choose to participate in a camp recital, sing in a group voice class, work a monologue in your acting class, or present the costume design you created in a theatre production class. Campers perform in the culminating performance (band, choir, and musical) on Friday evening.
This year’s camp musical is Disney’s Descendants!
Disney’s Descendants is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com. Theatre track campers may choose to work on stage or on the production team (lighting, sound design, costuming, makeup).
