This camp is open to ALL students entering 1st-5th grade! Our fun, educational, enriching summer camp programs focus on guiding performers as they develop skills, gain confidence, and build community. Students’ creativity is nurtured by building a strong foundation in acting, singing, and dance. Performers of all experience levels are given opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed on stage AND in the classroom. People of every race, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, and nationality are welcome and safe at PPAS, and we happily welcome neurodiverse students.

Adapted from the three-time-Tony-nominated Broadway hit comes A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, the jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, and all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad KIDS tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

This whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Throughout the year, two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special.


All registered students are accepted, and auditions are held for casting purposes only. Auditions are held at the end of the first day of camp after ample time and instruction have been given to the campers. Campers are not required to prepare for auditions in advance, nor will audition materials be provided to campers before the first day of camp. 


Two performances will be held at 3:00 and 5:00 pm on Friday, 8/19. The doors will open to the audience TEN MINUTES prior to the performance time.

Two tickets are included per camper with registration, additional tickets will be available in advance for $10 each. Instructions for ticket purchases will be provided via email at a later date.


Camp Staff is made up of a combination of PPAS teachers and professionals, with assistance from college students. All camp instructors are chosen carefully and selected for their experience with guiding and motivating young performers and their experience on stage themselves. All camp staff must pass background checks as required in all educational environments in Pennsylvania and have completed specialized training to be part of our staff. All staff is fully vaccinated against Covid-19.


Up-to-date and additional details will be provided closer to the start of the camp.
