LTW's Education Program

We challenge each of our students individually and as an ensemble. There are many skill sets to be learned as an actor and we have created classes that help your children and teens advance to each new level. To achieve this goal, it's important to have each student in the proper grade level to learn and be challenged most effectively. Below you will find our registration listings. Please look closely at the grade levels in the listings below to determine the best fit for your child.

Questions: Contact our Director of Children’s Programming Amanda Gremel or Assistant Director of Children’s Programming Stephen Frankenfield.

2021 Summer Camps

Please read the following as we have new guidelines in place.

Live Theatre Workshop is happy to announce that we will be opening up our new facility for summer camps. All our camps will have a limit of 15 students and sign ups are on a first come first served basis. You must fill out a registration form with a payment to secure a spot. Registrations cannot be accepted by telling a LTW staff member. We are keeping a close eye on the spread of COVID-19 in our community by following Arizona Department of Health (ADHS) and Pima County Department benchmarks. Our top priority is keeping both students and staff safe. As the benchmarks improve we will consider expanding the number of students in each camp if that can be done safely. You can follow these benchmarks by clicking here: https://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/infectious-disease-epidemiology/index.php#novel-coronavirus-schools

We have created extra safety precautions to help keep our students and staff safe. Please see our new camp safety guidelines and camp showcase safety guidelines.

Participant Information Form / Waiver of Liability

All camps will take place at our new campus, 3322 E. Fort Lowell Rd.

Online camps

We understand that not all families are ready to take in person camps this summer. At this time, LTW's education summer camp program does not have any online classes scheduled but we are open to making it available. If we have enough students interested we would be happy to run an online summer camp. If you would like to put your students' name down on our interested list please email Amanda Gremel at amanda.g@livetheatreworkshop.org.

About our camps

This year each camp's focus will be on reconnecting with one another while exploring acting, dancing, technical elements and even the possibility of singing, as safety permits. Camps are arranged by age and grade level and all skill levels are welcome! All of our instructors are trained to teach in a way that makes the entire experience fun and educational in a safe and low-pressure environment. While students will be very busy learning lines, acting, dancing, building sets, and producing their play; there is plenty of time for acting improvisation and theatre games. LTW's goal is to focus on the process of putting together a production and building a diverse community of young artists. We feel all students should understand what it takes to put on a show from start to finish with a focus on teamwork, personal responsibility, and thinking outside of the box. We are working out details on how our showcases will be presented each week to ensure the health and safety of all participants. Limited seating and/or virtual showcases are one possibility we are exploring. Decisions will be set as we get closer to the start of camps and have a better understanding of the pandemic's trajectory. If you have any questions please contact Amanda Gremel, Director of Children’s Programming at amanda.g@livetheatreworkshop.org

Summer Camp Schedule:

All of our summer camps are full at the moment. We do have a wait list going for each week of camp. If you are interested in getting your student on a waitlist please email our Director of Children's Programming, Amanda Gremel at amanda.g@livetheatreworkshop.org. Please include your students name, age, your name, phone number, and the best email address to contact you. Please also specify which week of camp you want to get on the waitlist for.

All camps reflect the grade your student will be entering for the 2021/2022 school year.

Because of registration limitations and COVID-19 precautions, camp participants are limited to registering for TWO different camps ONLY.

About Us

The Live Theatre Workshop’s OnStage! Education Department was developed and continues to develop as a center for teaching the theatre arts in a friendly and creative setting. Weekly classes and summer and winter drama day camps are taught by trained, experienced teachers, actors, and directors from the Tucson community. The program ranges from introducing theatre through the process of producing a script all the way to advanced technical and acting roles, as well as internships. The OnStage! Education program is a great place to begin and develop as a theatre artist.
