Acting games, auditions, play rehearsals, painting sets, inventing costumes, the thrill of an audience and the warmth of friendships old and new … That’s what you find at DRT Summer Theatre Camps where every actor is guaranteed a part.

Public performances are held on Friday evening (7:00 pm) and Saturday morning (11:00 am) the final week of each two week camp session.

  • DRT Regrets that registration for 2018 is delayed while we search for camp space. 

  • At this time of year, we understand that many families must make decisions regarding their summer plans and enroll in other popular camps before they fill-up. We hope you will continue to visit our Summer Theatre Camp webpage: durhamregionaltheatre.com/theatre-camps. And we hope to have fun creating great theatre with you in the future.

Warmly, Jenny Justice, DRT Artistic Director
