Summer Stages 2019
Brundage Park Playhouse proudly announces its 38th season of Summer Stages, a workshop for young performers ages 8–14. All students must have completed 2nd grade or higher during the 2018/2019 school year. Our qualified staff will instruct students in acting, music, and dance. Students will also gain performance experience through participation in a different production each session. We offer four two-week sessions. Each session can accommodate a maximum of 2 groups, with approximately 20 students in each group. This camp takes place at Brundage Park on Carrell Road. Students entering 7th grade or above in the 2019/2020 school year are eligible for our Advanced Performers Workshop as well. However, students must audition for that camp. Please call us at (973) 989-7092 for more information.
Sessions will run on the following dates:
Session 1: June 24 – July 5 (no class 7/4)
Session 2: July 8 – July 19
Session 3: July 22 –August 2
Session 4: August 5– August 16
Please try to schedule any personal appointments after camp time.
We cannot guarantee that friends will be in the same group. Request must be submitted upon registration with email to firstname.lastname@example.org. No requests after 6/17.
What to Expect During Sessions at BPP’s Summer Stages
At the beginning of each session, students will be divided into groups where they will learn a song and simple movement, which will then be used to “audition” for the directors. After auditions, each student will then be assigned a role and placed in a cast. Students will participate in acting, music, and dance workshops during one part of the day with the other half of the day dedicated to rehearsals for the show. Friday mornings of performance days, dress rehearsals will take place using costumes and props. Each group will have the opportunity to rehearse on the BPP stage.
What theatrical performance experience would be complete without an audience? At the end of each two-week session we present a production for an audience of parents, relatives and friends. Performances will be held in the theatre each session’s final Friday afternoon at 1:00* or 2:00*, depending on the particular group’s assigned time. Admission is free for these performances.
* Times may be adjusted depending on needs.
Our staff is comprised of dedicated and talented individuals who have studied the arts and whose skill sets qualify them to provide our students with a comprehensive learning experience. Their impressive resumes include all aspects of performance, with particular emphasis on dance, acting and music. As a result of our staff’s efforts, many of our students have gone on to perform in professional arenas.
Daily Arrival & Daily Departure Procedures
Student should be dropped off at the theatre at 9:00 am. The theater is located in Brundage Park, on Carrell Road in Randolph. The program will begin promptly at 9:15 a.m. Students must be picked up promptly at 3:00. Wait outside of the theater lobby until the theater doors are opened. Proceed through the theater doors and out through the right hand exit in front of the stage. For safety reasons, we must insist on this one-way traffic pattern.

This is a safety concern.
