"My son is already looking forward to at least one Lakewood Playhouse camp next summer and is begging for TWO!" - Kontos-Baker
"This summer was impressive...from the use of sets and costumes to communication. In addition, my child had a fantastic experience well above any others and she participated in 3 other summer camps over the last 2 years. She felt the camp was fun and organized." - Wong
Skill Building Classes
Students are asked to bring a monologue to class. (Does not need to be memorized) If they do not have a monologue one will be given to them in class. Students are asked to prepare their pieces just as they would for an audition. The instructor works on everything involved in the process: the entrance into the room, the attitude presented by the actor, the actual reading, and leaving the room. Students will have the opportunity to work with cold-reading and breaking down the “words” to fully encompass a script. Beyond the literature, an actor can land a role, or just as easily lose it, before even uttering a word from a script. The goal of this class is to help less experienced actors become more confident and better audition-ers, and help the more advanced students thrive in the industry of acting.

Growing Stars children make up characters and stories to help them understand the world. This class challenges little ones to explore what makes a character interesting and engaging? How would their character move? How would they dance? How would they talk? What elements does every good story need to have? How many different ways to tell a story are there? These questions and more are shared together with energy and lots of laughs! (All this and learning about Theatre along the way! - Start them young!!)
Students will explore the essential tools for creating credible acting performances including text analysis, improvisation, moment to moment concentration, speech and vocal exercises and scene performance critique. Scenes are taken from fun plays to explore and perform.

The most notorious criminal in the fairy-tale world, Big Bad Wolf, is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged. Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest — the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother — will clash (on live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm as commentator!) in a trial that will be remembered forever after. As Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that’s coming. But, even though the disreputable Evil Stepmother couldn’t be less interested in pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr. Wolf makes a good case for himself. Was he born a criminal, or made one?
