Young Theatre Makers


Collapsible - _Who Caused the Flood__ copy.jpg

Theatrical Storytelling 
July 2 - 5 (Ages 6-8)

9:00am - 3:30pm ($190)

Play Where You Live Home Studio in Almonte


Campers will start each morning with a story that sets the theme for our day: Mythical Creatures, Robots, Witches and Wizards and Dinosaurs.  Using drama and creative arts activities, campers will explore the different ways a story can be told and exploded into something new.

Each day includes an outdoor trip to a nearby green space where we will see how the outdoors can inspire story-making. 

Perfect for kids who have never taken drama and want to explore through play without a final performance.

Outdoor Drama Camp
Macbeth in 5 Days
July 8th - 12th
 (Ages 11-14)

9:30am - 3:30pm ($265)

Mill of Kintail Gatehouse

Final Outdoor Performance Friday at 4pm

Take the Mill of Kintail’s Forest Woods Trail… to Birnam Wood!

For campers who are interested in learning and performing selected abridged Shakespearan scenes in an outdoor setting. Campers will work as a team to develop outdoor staging that illuminates the relationship between Macbeth and the landscape. 

No previous experience with Shakespeare required, but campers should be eager to memorize and perform and be excited to look at a story filled with visits from the  supernatural, murder, and revenge!  The final Friday ends in an outdoor performance outcome for parents and family.

Outdoor Drama Camp 
To Grandmother’s house we go…

9:00am - 4:00pm ($265)

Mill of Kintail Gatehouse and Edu Centre

Final Outdoor Performance Friday at 4pm

Little Red Riding Hood will be our source material and the wilds of the Mill of Kintail will be our stage as we build an original adaptation that brings audiences through the story alongside Little Red and the wolf. 

Campers will be divided into two groups by age and build scenes, characters and the visual world of the play. The final Friday ends in an outdoor performance outcome for parents and family.


For the outdoor camps, are the campers outside all the time? What if it is raining? 

We have access to both the air-conditioned Gatehouse and Edu Centre for our camp in August, and the Gatehouse for our smaller July camp. We will be doing a lot of work outside however, so please prepare your campers accordingly


What should they bring?

All students should bring a lunch and nut free snack, as well as a large water bottle. We are outdoors so recommend hats, sunscreen, bug spray, and long lightweight clothes that keep off both those things and can be tucked into pants.


Shakespeare? How do I know if my kid is up for it?

Kids are memorization machines and we are excited to do some work on rhythm and analysis so they know WHAT they are saying. If they can memorize song lyrics, they can memorize Shakespeare. When in doubt, give us a call and we can talk to see if is a good fit

Are there subsidies available?

We believe that a theatre class can be transformative for the right kid at the right time. If you know a child who would really like to be involved, please don't hesitate to reach out as we have a limited amount of subsidized spaces available.
