Each summer, Rivertown Theaters teams up with Encore Studio of Dance, Tumbling, Music and Theater to hold two of the most exciting summer camps in the New Orleans area.

"The Show Must Go On" Theatre Intensive

We're moving forward with our summer musical theatre camps, but in a different format this year! Tired of sitting around or learning thru zoom? We'll have you on your feet singing, dancing, writing, working on scenes all day long! Students will work in 4 different spaces, both studios at Encore and both theaters at Rivertown.
Students will be teamed up in small groups based on level, and will work in those groups for the duration of camp due to health and safety guidelines.
We have a 3 page document outlining our Covid procedures and safety measures. Please ask if interested in viewing before enrolling.
- Work with 5 choreographers, 2 musical directors and a director.
- Learn original Broadway choreography
- Create your own scenes
- Expand your musical theatre knowledge by exploring a wide variety of musical theatre styles, history and eras.
Disney on Broadway, A Celebration in Revue
July 6-26, entering 3rd gr and up
“Be our guest” for Disney on Broadway! All your favorite hits in one big show. A fun and educational summer camp giving kids the opportunity to sing, dance, and perform their favorite songs from Disney Broadway musicals! Children will learn choreography and songs from well-known Disney Broadway musicals such as Newsies, Tarzan, Peter Pan, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid and more. We’ll also throw in some favorite production numbers from Disney movies. Each day includes singing, dancing, rehearsals, and theatre games led by professional choreographers and musical directors. The 3 weeks culminate in stage performances at Rivertown Theaters. Students will work in small groups by level so that we can adhere to social distancing guidelines set forth by the state and CDC.
This musical revue will give students the opportunity to sing and dance styles beyond the traditional musical theatre camp. Solo and group numbers from tap to hip hop and everything in between! Come have a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah good time with us this July!
What makes our musical theater camp experience unique? Each and every participant is featured and receives individual attention during their 3 weeks with us. We divide each show into 2 casts, opening up more lead/supporting roles opportunities and featured time on stage for all performers.
Also, students perform on our mainstage, using the set, lights, mics, props, and effects from the adult production that just took place.During the rehearsal process, our students work closely with our team of professionals benefiting from one-on-one training. Students work on every aspect of the production, gaining on-stage performance skills as well as backstage knowledge. We empower our students to work as a team and assist each other during the production, whether it be with set changes, props, costume, make-up, etc.
Parents and students continue to rave about the production value and professional experience they gain attending our camps. Our focus is on developing the young performers' skills and love for theater, not just shuffling around a large group of kids on stage.
Entering K - 2nd grade
Two weeks to choose from, or attend both
Now celebrating its 10th year, Broadway Baby camp is more popular than ever!
These "mini-camps" for those entering Kindergarten through Second grade are perfect for students who want an introduction into the world of musical theatre and to learn what it takes to perform in a show. Campers will study age-appropriate music & choreography and WILL PERFORM THEIR NUMBER ON STAGE! Each 1-week session will perform one production number in one of the older students' mainstage theater shows. Come for smiles, songs, dance, and a ton of fun!
