Intense Camps

Not only do we provide programs for youth to learn more about the theater- but we give them the opportunity to be a star!
LNT offers two week performance and technical theater intensives during the summer. 

Our youth performances are one of a kind and an outstanding opportunity for the participants to learn about every aspect of theater, its protocols & etiquette, and to experience the challenges of an intense professional rehearsal process. They are the culminating projects of one and two-week intensives.

Supported and lead by professional directors, designers and technicians, our Theater FOR Kids BY Kids productions are fully staged and designed.
The teaching artist/designer to student ratio averages 1 for every 3-4 students –  all the resources of Lost Nation Theater and its staff supporting them.

Recent Theater FOR Kids BY Kids shows include: Mary Poppins, Seussical, Peter Pan Jr., Red!-the long journey home, Velveteen Rabbit, The Three-No FOUR-Little Pigs, Alice in Wonderland Jr, Willy Wonka Jr, Dr. Seuss Fast & Loose, Into The Woods, Jr, R&J-abridged, Annie Jr, Ferdinand The Bull, and The History of the American Songbook Cabaret.

These opportunities are available for ages 9-21 (depending on the camp).
