"Discovering Courage for Children and Youth"

Whether your passion is for acting or musical theatre, stage combat or drama, we have a one-week class for you!

The Noorda Summer Camp offers classes for children ages 5-18, taught by master theatre artists and assisted by current UVU School of the Arts theatre, art, music, and dance students. 

Classes are from 9am-12 or 1pm-4pm, with a supervised lunch break, should a student choose to stay for both morning and afternoon classes.

Most classes are a week-long, running June 5 - 29, 2018, and have a short workshop recital on the last day that parents are welcome to attend.

“Our hope is that young people can develop self-confidence and courage so they can communicate effectively and succeed in life…” – Dr. John Newman, Director, Theatre for Youth and Education Center.
