The Young People’s Summer Workshop- Camden

The YPSW-Camden is a free theatre program for children ages 8-18 that will run each summer with auditions in May and performances in July. Rehearsals will take place at Kingsland Station on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays until the first week of performances. Shows will run Thursday through Sunday for two weeks.

The YPSW-Camden is designed to teach children theatre skills through experience. Production staff will include people from the community with varied skill sets, from people with professional theatre, music, and dance experience to veteran Camden County School teachers.
YPSW-Camden is modeled after the Island Players Theatre’s YPSW which was run by Joan Harris for almost 40 years. This successful program in Glynn County has produced many theatre professionals, from actors to directors to theatre educators working across the country.
The Florida Georgia Railway Heritage Museum, Inc. will proudly offer this summer program to children in the community at no cost. We believe all children should have a chance to participate in theatre programs, regardless of ability to pay. Every child who auditions will be cast in the show! Additionally, teens ages 13 and up may apply to intern on the production staff- working alongside the adults to learn the ins and outs of producing a show. Interns and cast may receive volunteer community service hours for school.

AUDITIONS!

ALL Actors auditioning must be 8 years old on or before May 5, 2024.
