OUR CAMP

E.E.S.P.A is a six-week intensive theater and art program on the campus of Dillard University from June 6th to July 17th. Here at E.E.S.P.A we let your kid's imagination take flight every weekday from 9 am to 3 pm with before and aftercare being offered. We currently are accepting campers between the ages of 7 to 16. Every week we will explore different parts of the intensive theater and other performing arts curriculum. Throughout the program, students will experience monologues, scenes, commercials, and a fun filled talent show. On July 15th,16th and17th as a culminating event, your young artist will showcase a stage play giving you a taste of everything they’ve learned throughout this summer experience.

FRIDAY PERFORMANCES

Every Friday your young artist will perform on the main stage in front of fellow peers and staff. They will be performing the materials they have been rehearsing all week. Each performer will be graded so we ask that they put their best foot forward. Costumes are not mandatory but they are strongly encouraged for this can only help your young artist get into full character. We know your child would love to see a friendly face in the audience. So please feel free to come to watch your young star shine. All performances start after lunch at 1:00 pm.  Friday performances are free.
