Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional regional theatre, has opened registration for its 2019 summer camp programs, serving students ages 6 to 18.

Children who dream of going somewhere over the rainbow can take part in a production of “The Wizard of Oz” through the “Star in a Show, Jr.” program. Running June 10 through 28, students ages 6 to 8 can participate in “Star in a Show Jr.” for $375.

Younger students who enroll in the half-day program take on triple roles as Munchkins, Flying Monkeys, and Crows in the musical. The experience concludes with performances on June 27 at 7 PM and June 28 at 3 PM and 7 PM.

A one-week program will be offered July 8-12. “Broadway Bootcamp” offers participation in songs, scenes and dances from some of Broadway’s biggest hits. The camp is broken into two age groups:

  • Broadway Bootcamp, for ages 9 to 14, will take place from 1 to 4 PM. ($250 fee)
  • Broadway Bootcamp Jr. for ages 6 to 8, will take place from 9 AM to noon. ($250 fee)

Both programs culminate in a recital on July 12 at 7 PM.

To register, visit City of Naples parks and recreation offices or online at apm.activecommunities.com/naplesrec/Activity_Search. Need-based scholarships are available for all programs.

Gulfshore Playhouse Education is also presenting this summer “Les Misérables” through their Teen Conservatory program, a pre-professional musical theatre program for students ages 13 to 18. Directed by Broadway veteran Becky Timms of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Cats,” performances will be held Aug. 1-4 and 6-10 at 7 PM and Aug. 2, 4 and 9 at 2 PM.
