The Shawnee Theatrical Arts Resource School (S.T.A.R.S.) offers a channel for a child’s natural gifts of imagination and role-playing. Through theatre arts children sharpen their creativity, improve their communication skills, gain self-confidence and learn the importance of teamwork. Above all, children enjoy becoming a part of the magic that they create on the stage.

Our program offers children an introduction to many aspects of theatre through stage movement, dance, music, art, creative games, role-play and scene study. Camp size is limited, please register as soon as possible. 

Our summer camps typically reflect the shows produced during the summer season. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic we are taking a different approach and bringing our camps OUTSIDE as much as possilbe.  Young performers will learn about acting, theatre etiquette, terminology, costuming and make up. The campers will then present a  staged production!  This special performance will be unique to each camp.  

This program has proven to be not only a very successful introduction to theater, but a practical training ground for the many children who fall in love with the stage during our camps. Many of young adults and children have auditioned for our Children's Theater and Main Stage programs after completing our camps.  We feel it is an incredible, hands-on experience that will help your budding actor/actress fall in LOVE with theater!





Each week concludes with a performance.  Tickets must be purchased for the show if it is open to the public.  Please click on each camp title below to see more detailed information.
