Summer 2023


Depending on the camp, we will meet at our studio in Chesterton, Duneland Community Church, Valparaiso Baptist Church, Portage Missionary Baptist Church, or at several outdoor locations (TBD).  


General Information

These fun, performance-based camps are designed for music & theater-loving students to develop their confidence, character & presentation skills through ensemble performance & training.  Open to all performers, regardless of previous performing experience, all camps encourage aspiring artists and future audiences through a wide array of classes, workshops and opportunities. Our staff of experienced Professional Performers work closely with the young artists to immerse them in an active rehearsal process that enables all performers to successfully stretch their skills regardless of their experience level. All camps culminate in final performance(s) for family & friends.

Mini Company Summer Production

Our youngest actors have their chance to shine on stage in this classic adaptation of one of the greatest tales ever told!  This intro to music theatre camp is perfect for the early learner who is eager to show off their talents to friends & family on the final day at their ticketed performance.

Grease themed show choir camp

Join us as we sing & dance in this super-fun camp!  Students will learn a 10 min routine full of solos, ensemble singing, and lots of choreography from the movie musical “Grease.”  The camp culminates in a final show for family & friends.  This is different than the Duneland Workshop offered later this summer.

youth company summer production

The highlight of every summer, our Youth Company, Mainstage Production always impresses!  Actors will sing, dance, & act in this two-week intensive performance training program featuring ticketed, public performances on the final weekend.

Kids company summer production

This performance experience is tailor-made with our upper-elementary students in mind.  These young artists will sing, dance, & act in this musical adaptaion based on the story of Rapunzel.  Camp ends with a final, ticketed performance for family & friends at a local venue.

1-week "Hercules" musical theatre camp

By incorporating all elements of musical theatre: song, dance, and acting, this camp is a “fast and furious” performance-based camp.  Students will rehearse & produce an adapted musical version of this famous Greek myth.  Camp culminates in a ticketed, public performance.

summer play (non-musical)

Produced in conjunction with Playact Theatre, this AUDITION-ONLY camp, will rehearse & produce a hilarious play (non-musical) adaptation of the classic book, “Miss Nelson is Missing.”  Participants will perform for family-targeted audiences in final, ticketed performances.


Summer camps at Premier are always a blast!  My kids love their Premier Family!
