We're thrilled to announce our 2023/24 30th Anniversary Season! CHECK IT OUT

Summer Intensives Two River Theater

Summer Intensives

A unique theater-making educational experience!

Each Monday, we start with a theme, a few songs, and some platforms, materials, and lights in an empty theater.

Then each Friday, we have a show – written, performed, and built entirely by our students.

How do we do it?

Two River Theater Summer Intensives attracts young people who want to make theater – to be in the rehearsal room or the scene shop to brainstorm ideas. They learn tangible theater skills from top-notch teaching artists who challenge and bring out the best in them. Add in the fun of meeting new creative friends who are accepting, brave, serious, as well as incredibly silly, and together they create new stories to share with audiences. Each week’s performance is unique as it features the specific talents of the people in the room. You won’t find another program like it!

Join us for one, two, or all three weeks in the Onstage or Backstage Tracks.

Full and partial need-based scholarships are available. Scroll down to learn more!

The opportunity for the students to work together in creating a production of their own work was beyond impressive and well done. The creative, collaborative and supportive environment really was like nothing my daughter has ever been involved in. She loved every minute of every day!

Wonderful staff. The camp is brilliantly organized so that the kids can take ownership of the entire creative process from writing the script, to performing it at the end of the week!

There is something about Two River that makes the program so inviting and enjoyable compared to others. It allows you to step outside you comfort zone and make new friends along the way.

It’s a great way to learn about the theater on an actual stage with actual professionals.

The most supportive staff and students anywhere! The children are all happy experimenting with different ways of creating art. Very nice group of students sign-up, so you can take risks.

The overall quality of the staff and the opportunity to create a production from start to finish in one week.

It is truly a safe space and goes above and beyond a typical theatre camp experience by creating memories and bonds that last forever.

Everyone is accepted for who they are. All kids are always hanging out together rather than cliques like at school.

We don’t have enough superlatives to express the extent of how wonderful the entire experience was.

The people involved are the GAME CHANGER! Amazing people!!!
