The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts Announces Summer Theater Camps for Children and Teens

This summer, the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will present a collection of theater camps open to all children in the community. There will be seven weeklong camps in July and August, all taught by local actress, director, singer and drama teacher Roberta Esposito. There are two camps for children aged 4 to 7, two for 8- to 11-year-olds and three for theater fans ages 11 and up. Children of all experience and skill levels are welcome.

The youngest group can explore princes, princesses and royal kingdoms in the Royal Treasure Box camp or musical theater based on folklore and fairy tales in Broadway Babies. For the 8 to 11 age group, campers can put on an L. Frank Baum inspired production in Wizard of Oz Meets Wicked, or they can explore ways of interpreting musical theater characters in Disney Musical Express. The oldest age group has longer, more in-depth options. Audition Boot Camp is a comprehensive course aimed to prepare students for formal auditions. The Villains and Villainesses camp will build confidence as well as character acting skills in learning to play evil characters. Finally, Life Is a Cabaret will teach students how to put on the many-featured performance of a cabaret.

For more information and to register, please visit There is a 10% discount available for students taking more than one class, multiple students in the same family and children of Lexington employees. To receive this discount, you must use the coupon code SUMMER2015 in the online checkout form.

We hope your child will join us for a summer of fun and enrichment in the performing arts.
