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.

Watch a clip of our Summer 2021 Thespian Ensemble in The Blue Monster!
Thespians will spend their first days together bonding and auditioning, and then will divide into the two casts of the shows below.
Old Man Harpagon loves money more than anything: more than his reputation, more than his friends, even more than his children. Definitely more than his children. So, when his children decide that they need to get their hands on some of his beloved cash, it can only lead to one thing: comedy. We know that true love conquers all. But can it conquer money?
Cluttering up Harpgon’s household are righteous children, a hot-headed chef, a spiteful valet, and a cunning matchmaker.

Twins Barbarina and Renzo may be orphans who have just lost the only home they’ve ever known, but they know good fortune is due to come their way at any moment. And it does – in the forms of a magical talking statue and a mansion that appears from thin air! For the first time in their lives, they are surrounded by unimaginable wealth, and by the seductive power that comes with it.
Meanwhile, King Tartaglia has returned from 18 years of war to find his kingdom falling to pieces. His evil stepmother banished his wife the queen, and his twin children are missing!
Can Tartaglia save his kingdom? Will the family be reunited? And what’s up with the little Green Bird that keeps flitting about?
