Campers will enjoy our beautiful seven-acre seaside campus overlooking one of Newport’s famous beaches, and have complete access to the school’s facilities, including classrooms, a new library, large art studios, state-of-the-art science labs, a fully equipped theatre, a computer lab, playgrounds and playing fields. In addition, we have a beautiful outdoor swimming pool on the grounds, and all campers get swim time as a refreshing break at the end of a productive day in the theatre. A certified lifeguard is on duty at all times.

Theatre at St. Michael’s Camp - We invite young performing artists to come together with our talented staff for an amazing summer of theatre! TASM uses each individual's talents to create, rehearse, and produce a unique theatrical event. These events include an original movie screened at the Jane Pickens Theater, an original musical written by the campers and given a world-premiere performance, and a pair of Shakespearean plays. Campers are involved in all aspects of the production, both onstage and off, developing existing theatre talents (although no previous experience is necessary), learning new skills, and making lifelong friends along the way. TASM sessions this summer include the Original Movie Production (June 25 – July 6), Original Musical Production (July 9 – July 28) and Shakespeare Camp “The Winter’s Tale” (July 30 – August 11), all for ages 9-15, as well as our Teen Shakespeare Intensive “Macbeth” (July 2 – 14), for ages 14-18. TASM also offers a popular tech program for those young thespians who would rather be behind the scenes – they will learn proper use of tools and equipment so they can help with the design and creation of the set, props, costumes, and also run sound, lights, and special effects during rehearsals and performances. All sessions are led and directed by theatre professionals, and the end-of-session productions are invariably well-attended smash hits. Cost varies by session, and financial aid is available.
