Learn more about Camp Phoenix
What is Camp Phoenix?
Operated by Phoenix Productions at our Rehearsal Center in Red Bank, Camp Phoenix is a dynamic summer program that teaches acting, music and dance with an emphasis on both fun and “triple threat training”. It’s an opportunity to train with the professionals who cast and produce the shows you see on the Count Basie stage! The curriculum is designed to develop the “Triple Threat” with instruction in singing, acting and dancing for musical theatre.
What is a Triple Threat Performer?
In theatre language, a Triple Threat Performer sings well, dances well, acts well, and feels confident on stage. From high school stages to Broadway, directors look for the actor who can sing and dance; the singer who can dance and act; the dancer who can act and sing. For more than 25 years, Phoenix has been “growing its own talent” by teaching young people how to sing, dance, and act well enough to perform alongside seasoned professionals.
How much experience is needed?
There is no child too new to theatre or too seasoned to gain something from this camp. Children new to performing are introduced to the arts and those with experience are able to practice what they know as well as further hone their skills.
Who are the instructors?
Instructors are drawn from the ranks of Phoenix veterans with solid experience in both theatre and teaching. The camp staff consists of a director/acting coach, musical director/vocal coach and choreographer with assistants.
Can my child attend camp all summer?
Because each session is tailored to challenge the students enrolled, no two experiences are the same. Campers wishing to have a full summer of musical theatre training can enroll in all sessions available for their age group and not feel like they are repeating a canned course.
