Perfect for the middle school comedian!
Our Thespian Ensemble is an advanced summer acting program, perfect for middle school drama students with a passion for performing arts.
Our Thespian Ensemble is perfect for the middle school actor. In just three weeks, Thespians receive expert training in acting and physical comedy to hone their skills in classical comedy! Each Thespian cast is limited to 13 performers, and every actor is an integral member of the ensemble. Thespians are carefully guided by a trio of directors, who bring out the best in every performer!

Perfect camp! My daughter is in her 4th year at Traveling Players, going every summer and taking classes through the year. Can’t imagine a better place. The combination of serious theater and outdoor camping is unique in the area. Better than that is the emphasis on ensemble — which creates a warm and inclusive camp where kids can grow as actors and as human beings.

By focusing on classical theatre, Traveling Players trains performers who are bold, resourceful, and skilled. Classical acting is demanding — and remains foundational to all modern acting technique. Hence, a summer at Traveling Players trains you to act not just anything, but anywhere. All the world’s a stage!
Traveling Players summer programs offer expert training in acting, character creation, physical comedy, stage combat, improvisation, and text analysis. A typical day includes intensive rehearsals in addition to classes taught by expert faculty, expanding each performer’s skill set.

Please do not be discouraged if you are placed in a different ensemble than your preference. It is likely because we think you will receive a better challenge or more leadership opportunities in the other ensemble.
