This kids summer theater camp program has been developed for our younger participants starting at five years and going up to eight years old.

The final production will be fully realized with sets, costumes, lights and the roar of a supportive crowd.

Students will be working with a Director, Choreographer and Musical Director during rehearsals. There will be a Production Manager present at all times.

Production Manager

Chelsea Kirkpatrick has been involved in theater since starring in her very first show at Westwood Charter Elementary. She could never have imagined that ten years later she would find herself as an instructor for that very same program.

She has been in over twenty musical theater productions throughout her schooling, and as a cast member in the ETC theatre company. She studied dance extensively at Debbie Allen Dance Academy, and screen acting at the New York Academy for Dramatic Arts.

Although she will always have a deep passion for performing, she has definitely caught the teaching bug. She feels so incredibly lucky to be a part of the Upstage team and this fantastic program.
