Since 1959, Contra Costa Civic Theatre has offered on stage classes for all ages. All of the classes and camps are part of the "Live at CCCT" program.
Drama Camp (Ages 7–12):
In our full-day, two-week sessions, campers learn theatre basics, which may include improv, vocal training, make-up use and special skills such as stage combat, magic and puppetry. Campers are involved in a professionally produced video, and each session ends with a full-scale, original production. No experience is necessary and participation in the production is guaranteed. More information.
A-Camp (Ages 12-16):
This two-week Advanced Camp, for students ages 12-16, is geared for the young actor who wants to begin building skills for high school theatre and beyond. Campers come prepared with a memorized monologue (no poems or songs, please) to perform the first day. More information.
