Studio East 2015 Summer Programs
Studio East has served the Eastside with summer theater camps and productions since 1993, and this summer brings old favorites and exciting new programs. We invite all interested kids and teens to sing, dance, act, laugh, perform, and make new friends this summer with Studio East!
Our one and two-week camps are a great way to get a taste of theater or improve existing skills. Theater Performance camps for younger children focus on creative dramatics and script creation, while older campers work from a script to create a theatrical production. Theater Skills programs focus on specific theater topics and are offered for ages 6-19.
Join Studio East for an exciting summer of creativity and fun!
- Most camps are held at various locations in Kirkland, not at Studio East.
- Start/end times and performance times on the final day of camps have been staggered to accommodate families with campers in multiple camps.
- Grades refer to a student’s placement in the coming Fall. Age 4 refers to the student’s age on the first day of camp. Exceptions are only made by permission of the Education Director.

Production experience is a great way to develop teamwork, responsibility and confidence. It demands that you focus, listen, follow directions, and take risks – all while having a lot of fun!

Up to 45 teens will perform in our annual Summer Teen Musical at the Kirkland Performance Center.
