Starting Arts offers summer camps with something fun for every child! Kids can participate in our Theatre Production Camps (offering 2 separate camps spanning ages 5-18 years old!) which always end with fantastic performances and our Summer Intensives where kids can spend the week focusing on one discipline (Dance, Music, Theatre Tech).  See a description of each camp below followed by online enrollment options.

Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister… but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.
