Summer Camp at The Phoenix Theatre Company

Summer Camp

Summer Camp

Thanks to all who attended Summer Camp 2023! The Phoenix Theatre Company is dedicated to making the arts accessible to children and young adults of all ages and abilities through our education programming. Please check back in early spring for dates and class offerings for Summer Camp 2024!

Our mission is to create an inclusive environment where young people can communicate their thoughts and feelings effectively through the arts while developing confidence, a positive sense of self, and nurturing their inner artist. All our staff members have previous experience in the arts, as well as working with children, and they are tasked with developing each child’s unique talents and form of expression. From campers to counselors to teachers – the sense of community and togetherness is strong – building new friendships and memories to last a lifetime.

Know a child ages 4-17 on the Autism Spectrum who is looking for a fun experience? We offer an inclusive camp for all students through our partnership with Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center. Contact our Camp Director, Michelle Chin, at or 602-889-7608 for more information.

Summer Camp themes will be announced in early spring but every year we offer Little Playmakers courses for ages 4-6, Weekly Musical Theatre Camps for ages 7-17 (grouped by age: 7-9, 10-12, and 13-17), and Master Classes for ages 12-20. All our camp and class options follow the same daily schedule. We also offer Pre and Post Camp outside the camp hours of 9:00am-3:30pm.

Little Playmakers

Ages 4 - 6   
Monday – Friday
Half Day:  9am - 12pm   
Full Day:  9am – 3:30pm

Learn to sing, act, and dance with us! Each week, we focus on a new theme as we create an original mini-musical revue. Campers use imaginative play to learn how to work together, create characters, and tell stories all while moving, dancing, singing, and having fun! There is a live in person showcase performance every Friday at 11:30 for family and friends. Registration for camp includes one camp T-shirt per camper.        

Weekly Musical Theatre Camps

Ages 7 - 17   
Monday – Friday
9am - 3:30pm

These workshops are perfect for young artists interested in learning the basics of acting, singing, and dancing!

Campers have fun learning collaborative skills while putting together a different musical revue each week based on popular musicals and contemporary hits. Throughout the week a new show is rehearsed featuring music, choreography, and scene work. The show is polished for a performance on Friday which friends and family can attend in person. Each age group tackles more challenging material and works with professional teaching artists to create new and exciting experiences every week! Registration for camp includes one camp T-shirt per camper.                     

Please note: Our 13-17 age group offers both one- and two-week sessions. Participants in the two-week programs perform once on the final Friday of their camp session.

Master Classes

Ages 12-20

The Phoenix Theatre Company is invested in creating future artists. Our Master Classes are for the serious-minded students who want to learn about the industry and dive deeper into their craft. Class size is very limited to enhance the experience of our various offerings. Check back for specific Master Class offerings. Previous Master Class offerings include: Camera Ready! Acting for TV and Film, Master Class Series: Behind the Curtain, Musical Theatre Intensive: Audition Preparedness, and a 3-week Performance Master Class.         


Through the generosity of our donors, The Phoenix Theatre Company is pleased to offer scholarships for campers with challenging economic needs. Since the availability of scholarship money is extremely limited and will cover only a portion of the cost to attend Summer Camps, we have implemented an application process to ensure that available funds are distributed as fairly as possible.  If you feel you need scholarship assistance, please carefully review and complete the application which will be posted in early spring to be considered for a scholarship (incomplete applications cannot be considered). 

Please note that scholarship awards may only be applied to the direct cost of camp attendance and may not be applied to pre or post camps or other products and/or services that may be offered.
