Youtheatre is excited to bring you this exciting collaboration with the Embassy Theatre. Participants in LET’S PUT ON A SHOW! Camp will do exactly that- PUT ON A SHOW! While auditions will be held for specific roles, everyone’s in the cast as Youtheatre directors lead them through auditioning, rehearsing and performing. SEUSSICAL Kids is great fun for the whole family, transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus. Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life in a fantastical musical extravaganza. Oh the thinks you can think…when you think about Seuss and this 30-minute adaptation of the hit musical!

The two most glorious words in the English language- “Musical Theatre!”  Spend one OR two weeks strengthening your vocal technique, honing your acting chops and expanding your dance skills.  While learning both classic and modern musical theatre, students will rotate through musical theatre performance, choreography and vocal performance with the directors and music directors of Youtheatre and the choreographers of Fort Wayne Dance Collective.  We highly recommend taking this as a two-week camp, but it can be taken as a one week experience.
