Camp 56

Attention all youths in grades 3-9! Camp 56 is returning for its fifth consecutive summer of providing an opportunity for campers to engage in a series of fun, theatre-based activities while preparing for on-stage roles in this summer's Festival 56 production of Gypsy.

This year's day camp will run from June 15 - 26th under the direction of Lisa Gadomski, a certified teacher with a background in theatre, aided by selected cast and crew from Festival 56. Additional rehearsals for Gypsy are scheduled in conjunction with the performance dates of July 2 - 11th.

Pick up a registration package at the box office in the Grace Performing Arts Center, 316 S. Main St. in Princeton. Or download it here - print out all 5 pages, fill in and sign all pages, and mail or drop them off at the box office with your check.

Cost per camper is $100 for the two week camp and checks can be made out to Learning Stage/Princeton Theatre Group. Scholarship assistance may be available to campers who demonstrate financial need.

Please contact with any questions.
