Now in our 11th year of offering summer camp, Derby Dinner Playhouse Performing Arts Academy is once again ready to educate and inspire the next generation of theatre professionals and patrons!

“I wanted to say Thank you for all you do during the Summer Camp.  My son has now participated for 3 years and he thoroughly enjoys it.  What your teachers and you both are able to do in one week is incredible.

“I attended many DDP camps and loved every single one of them!!”

Summer Musical Theatre Camp is a 1-week theatre camp for students ages 7-17 that focuses on music, dance, and drama. Campers explore songs, dances, and scenes from Broadway musicals. Each camper receives a camp t-shirt and the camp culminates in a final sharing on the Playhouse stage!

Camp Snow White Students ages 5-7 see the professional production of Snow White and the Prince, meet with the cast for a post-performance talk-back and pictures and take a behind-the-scenes tour of the theatre. After lunch, students take three short classes in acting, singing, and dancing where they learn a song and dance from the show.   At the end of the day, the students have a final sharing on the Playhouse stage and get their own camp T-shirt and certificate!

“I would be in BIG TROUBLE if I didn’t get her signed up.  Last year, after her first day she told me to go ahead and sign her up for next year.  She loved it!”
