Summer for Young Artists
Skills Camps vs. Performance Classes
Skills Camps are open to all young artists ages 4-17. These camps are every morning for either one or two week sessions. Each week focuses on the fundamentals of acting, singing, improv, working in an ensemble, and other core skills that build confidence and an appreciation for the arts
Performance Classes require an audition for admission and are associated with an upcoming TNP KidzAct stage performance. We recommend that children new to acting start in our Skills Classes and work towards auditioning for a Performance Class. Performances Classes require a commitment to a more rigorous rehearsal and performance schedule. Visit the Upcoming Auditions page to see our next KidzAct shows.
For all of our classes, need-based scholarships are provided generously through The Joan and Brooks Fortune Family Foundation. Everyone is welcome to apply. You can visit the application and find out more information here.

How can my child audition for a show?
Auditioning for an upcoming KidzAct production is considered part of our Performance Classes. Generally, there are four to six full-scale KidzAct stage productions each year at TNP. You are required to sign up for an audition time in order to audition. If a child auditions and is cast for a show, they are required to commit to the rehearsal, performance schedule, and fees associated with a particular show.
See our Upcoming Auditions page for opportunities to take the spotlight!
