Youth Session ages 7-12

Teen Session ages 13-18

The Wizard of Oz meets Choose Your Own Adventure in this fresh and fast-paced retelling of the L. Frank Baum classic in which the audience plays playwright and gets the chance to change everything from Dorothy’s footwear (silver slippers or ruby red…clown shoes?) to Toto’s species (lion, tiger or octopus?—oh my!) to the Witch’s flying footmen. A delight for youth of all ages, Choose Your Own Oz reminds us all that at the end of the day, there really is no place like home.


Our youngest campers are able to use their imaginations to bring fun characters to life through dramatic play, art, and music. These camps are a great introduction to theater and the performing arts. Each camp has a new theme so your actor can take one or all three sessions and have a unique creative experience every time. Each session is ideal for both boys and girls aged 3 – 6 years.
