This camp is open to students entering 6th-12th 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.

After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of Oz, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz, who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister… but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.


AUDITION INFORMATION: 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.


Performances will be held at 2:00 PM and 4:30 PM on Saturday 8/20. 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, professionals, and 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.
