Pre-K & Kindergarten

Ages 3 – K

For our youngest students (ages 3 – K), PAA provides week long, 1/2 day programs (9am-12pm) that are filled with fun activities including theatre, crafts, snack and outdoor time (weather permitting). The emphasis is on learning, engagement and social development through fun and playful exploration of a weekly theme. The week ends with an informal Shareformance in a supportive, age-appropriate space where friends and family can celebrate the campers’ achievements.

The week concludes with a Shareformance where students can show what they learned during the week.

Early Elementary

Grades 1 – 3

Our camps start the day with a morning conversation around a positive, enriching value or theme for the day, such as compassion. leadership and communication. There is also wrap up time at the end of the day, which concludes the day with reflection on the day’s value or theme.

In Early Elementary, 1st – 3rd graders take on the challenge of a fully staged 30-minute musical!  These are two-week programs, 9 am – 1:30 pm. The first week includes classes in acting, singing and dance, and rehearsal time. In the second week, the campers move into a tech week, where they continue to rehearse and the elements of lights, sound, costumes, set, and projections are added. Every day brings opportunities for fun, learning and new friends! The students bring a lunch, and outdoor play time is built into the schedule (weather permitting). These camps culminate in two fully-staged performances where friends, family and community members can support and celebrate the children’s achievement!

Early Elementary Audition Information

The first day includes “Share and Learn” time where the campers learn material and share it back. In this supportive, non-competitive format, the teaching artists assess the best match for roles to campers. No previous experience is needed. Everyone gets a role.
